Hi-Fi Rush Is Rumored To Get A Nintendo Switch Port In 2024
Bethesda Softworks and Tango Gameworks’ rhythm-based action game, Hi-Fi Rush, is rumored to receive a port for Nintendo Switch in 2024.
Nate the Hate, who is know for his connections in the game industry, stated in his new YouTube video that a critically acclaimed Xbox first party title will receive a port on a competing platform in 2024. He mentioned that the game he referred to was met with high critical acclaim and praise from fans. He further hinted that it was in the running for Game of the Year in the year of its release on Xbox and PC.
Meanwhile, a Reset Era member said that they’d bet the game in question would end up being Hi-Fi Rush. Fellow member who is known for sharing Xbox related leaks, lolilolailo, responded by telling them that they’d win the bet. For the unaware, the same leaker had previously revealed the arrival of Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal on Xbox Game Pass last year as well as the release of Taiko no Tatsujin on Xbox months before its official announcement.
Hi-Fi Rush is one of the best-reviewed games of 2023. It was developed by Tango Gameworks, known for games like The Evil Within. The game was directed by John Johanas, who worked on The Evil Within 2. Given that this was a completely new genre for Tango Gameworks, the positive reception was seen as a pleasant surprise. Microsoft shadow-dropped the game after one of its showcases.
The game’s plot revolves around Chai, a character who dubs himself a “rock star of the future.” Voiced by Robbie Daymond in English and Hiro Shimono in Japanese, Chai undergoes a unique turn of events when his music player accidentally becomes lodged in his chest during a futuristic surgical procedure. This allows him to engage in rhythmic combat and perceive his surroundings in a unique, synesthetic way. Now considered a “malfunction” and pursued by the corporation responsible for his transformation, Chai teams up with newfound allies to take down the company’s high-ranking officials and thwart their plans.
