The new “BPM RUSH” mode tasks players to battle waves of enemies to music with a steadily increasing BPM or beats per minute. As you defeat each wave and tackle toughened-up new foes, the BPM will speed up to the next level, up to a whopping 200 BPM!
In “Power Up! Tower Up!,” players take on the Rhythm Tower challenge with a new twist. Power Up! Tower Up! introduces Upgrades and Bugs between rounds – Upgrades boost Chai’s stats and provide other helpful boons, but at the cost of a lowered score multiplier. Bugs, meanwhile, boost your score potential and get you closer to those stylish S-Ranks… but at a cost.
The “Arcade Challenge! Update!” also introduces new Special Attacks starring our mechanical buddies CNMN and Smidge, new challenges to earn new Photo Mode stickers, some new t-shirts for Chai and outfits for Korsica, test out new poses and filters for Photo Mode and MORE!
The game’s details:
Hi-Fi RUSH is a single-player rhythm action game from Tango Gameworks, the award-winning studio behind Ghostwire: Tokyo and The Evil Within. In Hi-Fi RUSH, the entire world moves to the beat. Everything from the trees swaying in the environment to each hit landed during combat auto-syncs to the game’s music with stellar animations.
The player takes on the role of Chai, a free-spirited slacker with rockstar ambitions. During a technological procedure to receive a robotic arm, he finds an unexpected “bonus” when his music player is fused within his power unit. If that wasn’t enough, the company behind the experiment labels him a “defect,” making him a target for deactivation. With a squad of corporate overlords and an army of robots after him, Chai must defend himself through rhythmic combat and the help of a motley crew of allies to take down the company’s ruthless business leaders and escape.
