Toby Fox

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.

Undertale creator Toby Fox recently worked on the soundtrack for Gamefreak’s Little Town Hero. Today, he announced that he collaborated with Gamefreak once again – but this time, on something a bit bigger. He composed one of the tracks in Pokemon Sword & Shield. We don’t know yet which track he worked on, and Toby Fox himself says it wasn’t “one of the main tracks or anything”. Pokemon Sword & Shield are out in two weeks, on November 15.

Game Freak announced Little Town Hero last year before it disappeared for a long while. However, it resurfaced in a big way during the most recent Nintendo Direct with a release date and announcement that Undertale creator Toby Fox was on board to work on the soundtrack.

To say that this was an unexpected collaboration would be an understatement. In the latest issue of Game Informer, it was explained how the partnership came to be.

Nintendo published an interview this week with Toby Fox. Fox, who created Undertale, answered a few questions about his latest project Deltarune. He spoke about its origins, gave an update (sort of) for the second chapter and beyond, plus more.

We’ve transcribed the full interview below. Note that it contains some potential spoiler-related information for Deltarune Chapter 1.

Yesterday, rumors of the acclaimed indie game Undertale possibly heading to Nintendo platforms spread like wildfire after it discovered that someone from Nintendo of America’s developer support reached out to creator Toby Fox on Twitter. Fox, in response to the speculation, decided to share an official update on his own page.

Bringing Undertale to Nintendo platforms won’t be easy. The game was created in Game Maker, which doesn’t export to Wii U and 3DS. That means it would probably need to be completely reprogrammed. That being said, it sounds like Fox is open to giving things a shot.

Undertale would have a better shot at coming to Wii U than 3DS. Fox actually referred to Wii U specifically in his final tweet regarding a Wii U port. He’s also unsure as to how he’d use both screens on 3DS.

Here’s everything he posted on Twitter:
