We've got another game to add to our Xbox Game Pass April 2023 list today, as Cassette Beasts has been confirmed as coming to the service on April 26th, 2023 - but the catch is that it's only coming to PC Game Pass right now.
The PC release will be followed by an Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series X arrival as part of Xbox Game Pass at some point in Spring 2023. So don't worry - console players won't have to wait too long!
"Cassette Beasts will release on PC Windows, PC Game Pass on Day One and Steam the 26th of April and on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in late spring 2023."
As you can probably tell from the trailer and screenshots, Cassette Beasts shares a fair bit in common with Pokémon and other games in that genre, but it's also packed with plenty of unique elements - one of them being that monsters can be "recorded" to cassette tapes, and then played back in order to unleash them into battle.
It definitely looks like an interesting addition to Xbox Game Pass - we'll drop some more details below:
"Collect awesome monsters to use during turn-based battles in this open-world RPG. Combine any two monster forms using Cassette Beasts’ Fusion System to create unique and powerful new ones!"
"Welcome to New Wirral, a remote island inhabited by strange creatures you’ve only dreamed of, nightmares you hopefully haven’t, and a cast of brave folks who use cassette tapes to transform for battle. To find a way home you’ll need to explore every inch of the island, and record monsters to your trusty cassette tapes to gain their abilities!"
