Tango Gameworks, the studio founded by Resident Evil veteran Shinji Mikami and known for The Evil Within and Ghostwire: Tokyo, has announced its next game. Revealed during the Xbox Developer Direct event, the game is called Hi-Fi Rush and it’s out today.
A rhythm action game, Hi-Fi Rush has players performing moves to add layers to the music. The more you flow with the beat, the better you can perform abilities. Everything syncs up with the music as you play. The game is unlikely anything Tango has made before, and Mikami said he was keen to try something new for the team’s next game.
“As wannabe rockstar Chai, you’ll fight back against a sinister robotics enhancement conglomerate using rhythm-amplified combat where everything–from the motion in the environment to the blows of combat–is synced to the music,” reads a line from the game’s description.

From Tango Gameworks, makers of The Evil Within comes…something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
Hi-Fi RUSH is an all-new action game where everything you do syncs to the beat!

Ghostwire: Tokyo is Tango’s latest release, and it launched in March 2022 for PS5 and PC. The game could be headed to Xbox as soon as this March, following a year of console exclusivity for PlayStation due to publisher Bethesda’s previous agreement with Sony before it was acquired by Microsoft. However, Microsoft has yet to confirm if Ghostwire is coming to Xbox.
