Hi-Fi Rush Game Length

Hi-Fi Rush is not an open-world game, and neither does it have a huge number of collectibles for you to spend your time on.

In fact, it is mostly a linear game, with the only sort of customization elements being the different attacks that you can purchase or the gearboxes that you can collect to buy more upgrades. Other than that, you go from level to level, beat up evil robots, and move on. That is why the game shouldn’t take you too long to beat.

Main Story

Ultimately, you can expect to spend 8-9 hours if you focus on completing the main story. That means you aren’t trying to smash up every box and collect every upgrade hidden in secret areas. If you’re taking things extremely slow or plan on playing at a higher difficulty, you can expect to hit the 10-hour mark. But for most players, 8.5 hours is the average.

Main + Sides

If you’re trying to do all the side content in Hi-Fi Rush, it isn’t going to take much longer than trying to complete the main story. That is because the game is linear, and none of the areas take much time to explore.

But on average, players have taken 10-12 hours to do main + side content.

100% Completion

If you’re aiming for 100% Completion by acquiring every single achievement in the game, then it could take you a bit longer. There are 61 achievements to be unlocked, and some require lots of grinding, such as acquiring enough gearboxes to buy every combo and partner attack.

You might even need to perform multiple runs. Therefore, you can expect to spend 15-25 hours if you’re trying to get 100% completion.

Hi-Fi Rush Chapters

There are about 10 chapters or, as the game likes to refer to them, tracks in the game. These all take you to different divisions of the corporation and have their own enemies and battles. Each track tends to have Choruses, which are essentially arenas where you’ll encounter different robot enemies.

  • “Track 1: A Fresh Start” – There are 8 Choruses, and you can expect to spend 40-60 minutes on the chapter.
  • “Track 2: Power Up” – There are 10 Choruses, and you’ll likely spend 60-70 minutes on the second chapter.
  • “Track 3: Trial By (Volcanic) Fire” – Only 6 Choruses, but you’ll probably spend 45-60 minutes.  
  • “Track 4: Less Budget, More Problems” – Again, 6 Choruses, but you’ll likely need 40-50 minutes.
  • “Track 5: Breakin’ Out – 6 Choruses” and an estimated time of 40-50 minutes.
  • “Track 6: L.I.F.T. Me Up” – One of the shortest chapters with 3 choruses and 20 minutes to complete.
  • “Track 7: The Climb” – A relatively longer chapter with 10 Choruses and 60 minutes to complete.
  • “Track 8: A History Lesson” – 9 Different Choruses and an estimated time of 70-80 minutes to complete due to harder enemies.
  • “Track 9: Take The Stage” – Only one chorus, but it requires more exploration, so you can expect to spend 15-20 minutes on this chapter.
  • “Track 10: A Masterplan” – 10 Choruses and an estimated time of 50-60 minutes to complete the chapter.
  • There is one final act that happens after Track 10, which is essentially the finale and isn’t marked as a track. It can take you around 60 minutes to complete.

Hi-Fi Rush puts you in the shoes of a “future rockstar” who gets combined with his music player and gains the ability to sense the rhythm of everything around him. In the super stylish rhythmic game, you get to take down an evil corporation while synching to the rhythm of everything that happens around you. 

With that, you know all about how long to beat Hi-Fi Rush and the overall game length. In general, the game isn’t as long as some other titles out there, especially because of its linear design. But the game still offers a lot of content and many memorable moments!
