Xbox Game Pass Ultimate’s latest update adds a brand-new Pokemon-like game that is releasing to rave reviews from critics. The new addition is called Cassette Beasts in which takes its inspiration from Game Freak and Nintendo’s Pokemon franchise, but looks to provide its twist on the familiar concept.
Similar to Pokemon, Cassette Beasts is a game that revolves around collecting monsters and using them in turn-based battles. However, the player character in Cassette Beasts transforms into the monsters, and players can fuse two of them together to create a completely new creature. The gameplay feature has taken the popular Pokemon fusion fan art concept and incorporated it into the game.
Although other Pokemon clones have hit the market over the years, none of them have been quite as well-received as Cassette Beasts. Some early reviews have even bestowed perfect 10/10 scores and said that the game is even better than Pokemon, indicating that it could be one of the greatest games in its genre. Interested players can try the game through PC Game Pass, which is available as a standalone subscription or as part of an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
The Cassette Beasts console release date is confirmed as May 25 and will release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The game has already been made available for PC gamers to play. All in all, it’s safe to say that the game is well worth the wait based on its positive reception.
Cassette Beasts being confirmed for a May 25 release date on consoles means that yet another game has been added to the May 2023 Game Pass lineup ahead of the official announcement. With several other games dropping throughout May 2023, it appears that it could be one of the greatest months for Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service.
