Although things were looking fairly dire for team Xbox when exiting 2022, this year kicked off with plenty of momentum thanks to Tango Gameworks. From the Developers_Direct held in late January, Hi-Fi Rush received a shadowdrop for Xbox and PC. Of course, this was a major title for Xbox Game Pass as well. Most surprising is the game outperformed Luminous Productions’ Forspoken on Steam then.
Following the initial release, Hi-Fi Rush has been tossed around for potential ports for Nintendo Switch or even PlayStation. But, that is not the case – at least according to the game director it isn’t. When talking to Minnmax, on PC was the main focal point. Even though this was pre-acquisition by Microsoft, it was not until the game was properly realized that Xbox would be the only console version for Hi-Fi Rush.
Now on Wednesday, Tango Gameworks announced that a new update will roll out for Hi-Fi Rush including a new Photo Mode to the game. And with its artistic, adrenaline-pumping gameplay you would want to capture the most impressive moments in the game. “Available in the latest update to the game, players can now capture their favorite moments from Tango Gameworks’ vibrant, musically enhanced action hit with a touch of a button,” the post reads.
“While in Photo Mode, players can customize their pictures with a variety of filters, camera settings, poses and even allies joining in the shot! Once the update is complete, you can access Photo Mode directly via the in-game menu. […] On Xbox Series X|S, you can check out your photos in the ‘My Capture’ menu on your console. On PC platforms, check the folder where your Hi-Fi RUSH saved games are stored for a folder called ‘Screenshots.’”
In other Hi-Fi Rush news, the developer is to be in search for a new studio lead in the coming months. From TrueAchievements, it was revealed Tango Gameworks founder Shinji Mikami is to depart from Tango Gameworks later this year. You can read the full report by heading here.
