While music games have become an endangered genre of late, the world’s first trombone-based rhythm music game seems to completely ignore this theory. Only published five days ago, Trombone Champ has emerged among the top five best selling games on Steam and is becoming so popular that players are now demanding that the game be released on consoles.
Where can I play Trombone Champ?
Trombone Champ is currently available on Steam, where it sits at number five in the top sellers chart behind much bigger titles like Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, FIFA 23 and Cyberpunk 2077. The game is compatible with Steam Deck where it can be played using the spinning top feature, but the game is not available on consoles. ResetEra players hope it will come to devices like Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One, although developer Holy Wow hasn’t announced any plans for it yet.
While console versions are not in the game’s immediate future, Holy Wow has revealed the game’s content roadmap for their immediate priorities, all of which they hope will be completed this year. Besides bug fixes and things like “little song adjustments” these are:
Track selection screen improvements: Added metadata like tempo + song length, as well as the ability to sort tracks by difficulty, name, etc.
Accessibility: Adding the ability to reduce blinking, colors, background motion, etc. Also start adding controller support + alternate control methods.
More songs: Free batches of new songs, most likely to be released in sets of three. Each deck will contain a “basic” song to facilitate the new player experience.
Score chart: Optional “pop-up” chart on score screen showing how you did throughout the track.
Better widescreen support: Enhance the gaming experience with ultra widescreen monitors.
Prepare localization: Updating the code base to add additional language support.
Mac and Steam Deck: Researching the feasibility of a Mac version and potentially improving the SteamDeck experience.
