Hi-Fi Rush hits new milestone

In a crowded year full of excellent video games, Tango Gameworks’ Hi-Fi Rush might be one of 2023’s biggest surprises, with the Xbox console exclusive game getting announced and released on the same day to great fanfare, thanks to its unique gameplay mechanics and punchy art style. Since its release back in late January, Hi-Fi Rush has gone on to be enjoyed by more than 3 million players.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the official Japanese Tango Gameworks account revealed this latest milestone, saying (via translation): “#HiFiRUSH has surpassed 3 million players!

From all of us at Tango Gameworks, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Of course, it is worth noting that 3 million players does not equate to 3 million copies sold as Hi-Fi Rush was made available day-one on Xbox Game Pass. Still the figure is an impressive one nonetheless – even if it took 5 months to grow from 2 to 3 million.

Early last month, Hi-Fi Rush received its first major free update, adding two new game modes ‘BMP RUSH!’ and ‘Power Up! Tower Up!’ alongside a bunch of smaller improvements and refinements. This likely helped to push the title to its latest milestone – though this is merely conjecture on our part.

Hi-Fi Rush is a unique game with an equally unique concept executed excellently and so it is not surprising to see that the action-rhythm game has amassed a large audience of fans. Hopefully this encourages more games to be released in a similar manner.
