Having arrived as quickly as it was announced, Hi-Fi Rush has become an overnight hit among gamers. The game was formally announced at an Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct conference that took place on Jan. 25 only to be released moments after the livestream. It was developed by Tango Gameworks and published Bethesda Softworks, both of whom worked together on the Evil Within survival horror series. Despite the nature of its surprising release, the game was met with positive reviews.
The game has been praised for its use of music and audio, which are crucial elements of the game. Performing certain actions to the beat of a soundtrack will yield more combat options and stronger attacks.
Just as important to the experience is the cast of voice actors who bring the game's characters to life. Hi-Fi Rush features a group of prolific voice actors who liven up the already vibrant world of the game.
