Tango Gameworks’ ‘Hi-Fi Rush’ will reportedly be revealed soon
It could appear at Xbox and Bethesda’s Developer Direct later this week
The next game from Bethesda studios’ Tango Gameworks could be revealed soon, it’s been claimed.
According to billbil-kun, a leaker who has consistently revealed the contents of PlayStation Plus lineups ahead of official announcements, the game is named Hi-Fi RUSH and will be released in a standard and deluxe edition.
Little is known about the game, but it’s possible that it will be revealed at Xbox and Bethesda’s Developer Direct which will be broadcast on Wednesday, January 25th at 12pm PT/3pm ET/8pm GMT.
Shinji Mikami’s next game, Hi-Fi Rush, is out on Xbox Game Pass today. The Japanese developer revealed his new rhythm action game and a surprise release on Wednesday during an Xbox and Bethesda product showcase.
Ghostwire Tokyo - the VGC review
Tango Gameworks’ last major project was the PS5 console exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo.
VGC’s Ghostwire: Tokyo review called it a “memorable but flawed horror-action game”, saying its unique setting was let down by repetitive gameplay.
“At times it feels like the game’s incredible art direction, music and visual style deserve a game that’s better mechanically, but when it all comes together, Ghostwire Tokyo is one of the more memorable recent games in the triple-A space, if you can ignore its gameplay stumbles,” we wrote.
Tango Gameworks’ other recent project, a mobile title names Hero Dice, was shut down last year.
Last year, Tango Gameworks founder Shinji Mikami said he wanted the Ghostwire Tokyo developer to work on smaller and non-horror games in the future.
Speaking in an issue of Famitsu – transcribed by VGC – the veteran game developer said that he wanted people to stop associating the studio with a single genre, and that there were plans to make non-horror games in the future.
“I hope to eventually change the image that Tango Gameworks currently has,” Mikami explained in the interview. “At the moment, we are still seen as a studio that specialises only in survival horror.
“Of course, it’s nice to have fans think of us as a studio with a reputation for developing survival horror games. But we also want to be viewed as a studio that can create a wider variety of games. We will be releasing more and more new games in the future, starting with Ghostwire: Tokyo, so please give us your support.”
