Shock breakout hit Hello-Fi Rush is formally Steam Deck verified, writer Bethesda Softworks introduced in a tweet on Thursday. The motion rhythm sport performs fantastically on Steam, and the hand held assist means you possibly can shred towards bosses on the go. I’ve discovered that the sport performs finest with a controller, and I can’t wait to attempt it out on the Deck.

No matter your timing, you possibly can nonetheless assault efficiently; Chai will nonetheless strike on rhythm. Tapping the assault button on the beat simply means touchdown combos and getting a greater post-fight score. It’s completely a rush.
