Get ready to feel the 'rush' of Hi-Fi Rush in a whole new way, as the rumours of a Nintendo Switch release look like they've just been confirmed. Tango Gamesworks' melodic masterpiece has already broken free from its Microsoft exclusivity for PlayStation, and now, it looks like it's Nintendo's turn.

As part of Phil Spencer's new vision for Xbox, he wants to get its games on as many devices as possible. While we're still a way off from seeing Game Pass on PlayStation or Nintendo consoles, there's been a slow trickle of previously Xbox-exclusive titles finding a new home.

After months of speculation, the Pan European Game Information board (PEGI) has posted a listing for Hi-Fi Rush on Nintendo Switch. It comes just a month after the game released on PS5. Although Hi-Fi Rush has a release of April 30, we don't expect it to suddenly drop today. 

We should note that the PS5 version is also listed as April 30 but released on March 19, suggesting it's just PEGI's internal date. Remember, as other Xbox games, Grounded and Pentiment, came to Switch on April 16 and February 22, we assumed it was only a matter of time until Hi-Fi Rush joined the party.

Assets that were previously leaked from a Hi-Fi Rush update included new outfits, with blue suggesting a PlayStation release and red for Nintendo. Some speculated Hi-Fi Rush would be saved for the mythical Switch 2, but with separate reports that it's been pushed into 2025, things might've been fast-tracked.

While we shouldn't suddenly expect Xbox juggernauts like Starfield and Halo to pop up on PlayStation and Switch, seeing Hi-Fi Rush and the others pack up their bags could be a sign of things to come. After the Nintendo Direct: Partner Showcase dashed our hopes of Hi-Rush on Switch, it looks like our patience has paid off.
