Raw Fury and Bytten Studio have shared a new gameplay trailer for their turn-based open-world RPG Cassette Beasts, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.

This highlights the game’s “intricate” Fusion gameplay system, which lets you combine any two monster forms from the 120 that are available to genre more than 14,000 fully-animated unique combinations.

This works like a temporary evolution in battle, where your player character and chosen (human) companion are transformed into a single monster form. Until your fusion ends, the two characters will work as one and combine their elemental types, stats and moves.

In Cassette Beasts, you record and capture a monster to tape before playing it back to take on its form for battle. You will have the chance to explore New Wirral in an effort to find your way home, recording the monsters that you encounter on the remote island within your trusty cassette tapes to gain their abilities.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:

  • Transform into monsters using… retro cassette tapes? Faced with the constant threat of monster attacks, the residents of Harbourtown, New Wirral choose to fight fire with fire. Record a monster to tape, then play it back to take on its form for battle!
  • Fuse monster forms. Getting close to your companion has benefits–while transformed you can combine your strengths to gain the upper hand in battle! Any two monster forms can be fused to produce unique, fully-animated new fusion forms.
  • Explore a rich open world. Certain monster abilities can be used in human form. You’ll need these to help you get around, solve puzzles, and locate dungeons. Glide, fly, swim, climb, dash, or turn magnetic!
  • Travel alongside a diverse cast of human companions. Never fight alone! Form bonds, spend time together, and help your selected partner complete personal goals to become a better team.
  • Master a deep battle system. Take advantage of elemental chemistry to apply extra buffs or debuffs alongside your attack, or even alter your opponent’s elemental type!

Cassette Beasts will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide, with a release date still to be confirmed.
