Undertale creator Toby Fox first became involved with Game Freak after he composed some music for Little Town Hero. It turns out his contributions didn’t stop there, as he also made a track for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. You can listen to the tune here in case you missed it.

Fox has now written a piece on his involvement with the new Pokemon Switch games and how he ended up writing a bit of music there as well. Read his full message below.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield

As the name implies, past Pokemon games included the Exp. Share item so that members in the party not currently used in battle can earn experience. However, in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, Game Freak has done away with it entirely. All party members are now automatically given experience equally. Some fans were surprised by this since there’s no way of turning it off.

In an interview with Dutch site InsideGamer, director Shigeru Ohmori explained the move. He noted that most players had Exp. Share turned on, and those who want to train one Pokemon at a time can remove everyone else from the party.

Ohmori’s full words:

Several new games out came out this week on the eShop. If you’re interested in checking out what’s new in screenshot form, take a look at the gallery below.
