At the Cassette Beasts Showcase earlier this summer, Cassette Beasts released the free “Catacombs” update for all players, featuring the new Abandoned Mine location, eight new monsters to discover, and 10 new moves for monsters to use. The team also announced that eight-player online multiplayer is in development for a future update on all platforms, letting players go adventuring together, trade tapes with each other, challenge one another to battle with a variety of custom rule sets, and team up for raid battles against Rogue Fusions!
Cassette Beasts puts a unique spin on monster-collecting RPG adventures – on the remote island of New Wirral, people can use cassette tapes to transform into strange creatures and battle! You’ll need to explore the island and record a menagerie of mighty monsters to your trusty cassette tapes to gain their abilities and find a way home. You can even combine two creatures together to make powerful new forms with shared elemental types, stats, and move sets, with thousands of possibilities to discover. Play on your own, or join together with a friend in local co-op multiplayer and Steam Remote Play Together for up to two players!
