A PlayStation 5 release date for the currently-Xbox console exclusive Hi-Fi Rush has found its way onto the internet.

The Hi-Fi Rush PS5 launch date was today revealed to be 18th March, courtesy of a new trailer for the rhythm action game posted to Bethesda’s Latin American YouTube channel [UPDATE: And has now been officially confirmed].

With today’s announcements of Grounded and Pentiment for Switch, that just leaves the identity of the fourth game – reportedly Sea of Thieves – still to be officially confirmed.
