Developed by Tango Gameworks and both announced and released on the PC and Xbox Series X|S on 25 January 2023, Hi-Fi Rush immediately had the signs of being a cult-classic hit, and the experience will be expanded soon.
During the Xbox Games Showcase Extended livestream today, it was confirmed that an update will be pushed out to Hi-Fi Rush on all supported platforms starting 5 July 2023.
This free update is dubbed the ‘Arcade Challenge!’ update, and will introduce a number of new features including:
- Two new game modes: BMP Rush! and Power Up! Tower Up!
- New Music to complement these new modes
- New player customisations and special attacks
Hi-Fi Rush sees players fill the shoes of Chai, a free-spirited slacker with rockstar ambitions. During a technological procedure to receive a robotic arm, he finds an unexpected “bonus” when his music player is fused within his power unit. If that wasn’t enough, the company behind the experiment labels him a “defect,” making him a target for deactivation. With a squad of corporate overlords and an army of robots after him, Chai must defend himself through rhythmic combat and the help of a motley crew of allies to take down the company’s ruthless business leaders and escape.
