Hi-Fi Rush (Original Soundtrack): 4LP Vinyl Box Set

£92.99

Release Date: 15 December, 2023

Tango Gameworks, Bethesda and Laced have teamed up to bring the pulse-pounding score for 2023’s most colourful gaming surprise, Hi-Fi RUSH, to vinyl.

The 4LP box set has been designed by Tango Gameworks’ formidable art team. The rigid slipcase features Chai and 808, while the inner sleeves highlight Chai’s Assist allies, including Peppermint, Macaron, CNMN, and Korsica. This Standard Edition features heavyweight discs in traditional black.

The set includes 42 specially remastered tracks from the original soundtrack, among them the alternate boss battle tracks created for Streamer Mode.

Revealed to the public in an audacious shadow-drop, Hi-Fi RUSH was a breath of fresh air, harkening back to the early 2000s with its vibrant visuals and goofy humour. The game marries rhythm game and character action game mechanics, with the whole environment of the Vandelay Technologies campus literally bopping to the beat.

As it is for protagonist Chai, music is at the heart of Hi-Fi RUSH. The game’s substantial music team, including The Glass Pyramids, Shuichi Kobori, REO, Masatoshi Yanagi and Hi-Fi RUSH Game Director John Johanas, went all out for infectiously energetic rock. Immense riffs and propulsive drumming played an essential part in maintaining the tension and excitement of the whole experience and keeping players laser focused on the pulse.

And has a game developer ever sung so sweetly and earnestly to their audience as Johanas does on the credits track “Secret Song (Making Things Is Hard)”, crooning “please don’t complain and just enjoy, because at the end of the day, it’s all just a game.”
