New Hi-Fi Rush Update Makes Chai’s Pillow Softer for Greater Relaxation

Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have announced that their rhythm action game, Hi-Fi Rush, has received its fourth update, remedying issues of varying severity to improve the overall gameplay experience. In addition, and perhaps most significantly, the softness of the couch pillow in the hideout has been enhanced to be more refreshing for Chai.

You can view the full quoted patch notes below:

  • Removed exploit that allowed players to continuously resell Special Attacks that the player has already sold. This adds realism since you cannot sell that which is no longer yours.
  • Fixed an issue where the “Specialist” challenge on The Wall of Fame will not be unlocked despite purchasing all available Special Attacks in the game. (Note: This is retroactive, so if you have already purchased the attacks it will register the objective as complete automatically)
  • Fixed an issue where a cool hidden animation for playing with 808 on the couch while she is equipped with the Bossplay Roquefort costume would not play.
  • Fixed support of PSO caching on the Microsoft Store version which could cause hitching during gameplay.
  • Adjusted couch pillow softness in the hideout to better refresh Chai when relaxing in between missions.

In case you missed it, the game’s executive producer, Shinji Makami, announced that he has left Tango Gameworks.

The game’s director recently shared his extensive thoughts on the game’s conceptualization, development struggles, and more.

The protagonist of Hi-Fi Rish is named Chai, a victim of a corporate experience that allows him to sense the world’s rhythm. Enemy attacks, cutscenes, and all the action keep the rhythm going. The endearing partner 808 helps keep the timing like a metronome. Other heroes join Chai to add to the combat’s systems and create lengthy and flashy maneuvers.

Hi-Fi Rush is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, and PC via Steam.
