Earlier this week the game received a new update celebrating its first anniversary, giving players new t-shirts to wear in-game.
Players of the Xbox version get a green shirt saying “shadow dropped” (a reference to the game’s surprise release), Epic Games Stores get one saying “this is simply
unreal epic”, and Steam owners get one saying “Be Positive (Overwhelmingly)”, a reference to Steam’s user review system.
However, Tumblr user random-cattai has datamined the latest update and found the textures for not only the four new shirts and the exclusive Xbox, Epic and Steam ones, but also two other shirts which aren’t currently in the game but appear to have been made for future PS5 and Switch ports.
The apparent Switch shirt is red and says “rock out anywhere”, a reference to the Switch’s portability, while a blue shirt saying “I’m here baby” appears to refer to the game finally arriving on PS5 after a year of Xbox console exclusivity.
Speculation that Hi-Fi Rush would go multiplatform soon has been ongoing for the past month, after the Nate the Hate podcast claimed in early January that Microsoft is planning to bring one of its “more acclaimed” first-party games to competing platforms this year.
The show didn’t name the game in question, but noted that it was “in the game of the year conversation” in the year that it was released, leading to speculation that it could be Hi-Fi Rush.
