Update: Tango Gameworks has now released patch notes for Hi-Fi Rush's final update. Here they are in full:

Hi Fi-Rush Update 9 patch notes

PlayStation 5 and PC

  • (Track 01) After reducing QA-1MIL to zero health, a collision issue would occur where players would fall out of the geometry. Chai will now properly fall to the ground, instead of into the abyss.
  • (Track 01) Fixed an issue during the latter half of the 2D area whereby the camera would not follow Chai when the elevating lift falls.
  • (Track 02) Corrected a defect whereby if you touched Rekka during her electric charge, your final Rank would not correlate with the Chorus score.
  • Some issues would occur when trying to use Macaron’s Gravity Well while Rhythm Parrying an enemy. Well, this is now fixed!
  • (Track 03) Cutscenes previously would not play correctly if a Health Tank was consumed during the fight with the HG-0G. Feel free to block a few more hits with your face because this bug is fixed!
  • Fixed various text issues.

PlayStation 5

  • (Track 01) During the “Dodge Attack” tutorial, there was a discrepancy between what Smidge said and the text. The text will now display correctly.

All platforms

  • (Track 01) We also QA’d some other issues during the QA-1MIL fight, particularly around transitions between phases.
  • Fixed even more text bugs! They just don’t stop!
  • Drink prices adjusted in Vandelay vending machines to reflect local currency conversion.

A release date for the physical edition hasn't been announced, but Limited Run Games has told fans to "stay tuned for details."

Hi-Fi Rush to get final Xbox patch later today

Last week, Microsoft shook the gaming world when it announced the closure of multiple Bethesda studios, including Tango Gameworks and Redfall developer Arkane Austin. The move came as a surprise to many, especially as Tango, Microsoft's only Japanese studio, delivered one of the best Xbox games of this generation with Hi-Fi Rush. The day after Tango's closure was announced, Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty reportedly told employees Xbox needs "smaller games that give us prestige and awards," baffling everyone even further.
