Is Hi-Fi Rush Skipping The Nintendo Switch?

While it’s official that Tango Gameworks’ quietly released and instantly successful game is coming to PlayStation 5, we can’t say the same for Nintendo.


Yesterday it was reported that four Xbox exclusive titles from Microsoft will be ported to rival consoles. One of them is Hi-Fi Rush, but it’s one of the games that will be coming to PlayStation 5 ONLY, although judging by its visual style, it could probably run on Nintendo’s soon-to-be 7-year-old hybrid platform just fine. In the case of Sea of Thieves, we understand if the Switch is left out, because it’s a massive ocean simulation that requires a powerful processor. And the Switch doesn’t have that.

According to Tom Henderson, there’s a reason why the rhythm-based action game from the studio behind The Evil Within is missing from the Nintendo Switch. He knows that Microsoft is planning to release it on the Switch’s successor, so we probably can’t expect a Nintendo version of Hi-Fi Rush in 2024, as rumors suggest that the new, yet-to-be-officially-named N hardware has reportedly been delayed until early 2025 instead of the previously planned fall 2024 launch, and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if the aforementioned March console reveal has also been pushed back to June. (And that’s also when we might see Metroid Prime 4, which was announced over 6 years ago but has essentially disappeared since then, as discussed in more detail in today’s news).

Hi-Fi Rush was a pleasant surprise in 2023. Not only because Microsoft and Tango Gameworks released the game as a surprise for the Xbox line and PC, but also because it was a somewhat unusual move by the Japanese studio, but it was a success, as it was one of the best games of the year. And PlayStation 5 fans will soon be able to try it out, with pre-orders now open on the PlayStation Store and a March 19 release date for Sony’s current-gen console.
