Cassette Beasts Bytten Studio Raw Fury Nintendo Switch open-world RPG monster fusing turn-based Xbox One Series X Game Pass PC

Raw Fury has announced that it is now the publisher for UK indie developer Bytten Studio’s Cassette Beasts, a monster-fusing turn-based open-world RPG headed to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Game Pass, and PC. Cassette Beasts has no release window yet, but it does have an announcement trailer with a cool backing track. The game premise is that you are on the remote island of New Wirral, and people use cassette tapes to transform for battle against “strange creatures.” You can also record monsters to cassette tapes to learn their abilities. By forming bonds with other people and helping your selected partner complete their goals, it will (somehow) help you more effectively fuse two monster forms.

Bytten Studios consists of just lead artist and writer Jay Baylis and programmer and designer Tom Coxon, so Cassette Beasts is a pretty ambitious undertaking as their Nintendo Switch debut. Speaking of new publisher Raw Fury, they said, “Their team gets what we’re trying to achieve with the project and have been very supportive.” One would hope so. Otherwise, they’d be real doofuses for partnering with them for their video game.

Watch out for future updates on Cassette Beasts and its slick monster-fusing RPG antics on Switch.
