deltarune status update

Undertale creator Toby Fox is continuing to tinker away on his new game Deltarune, but the developer has confirmed that no additional chapters will be made available this year.

Although that’ll come as a disappointment to some, there’ll at least be some news in the very near future. Fox has indicated that we’ll be seeing something special for the anniversary of Undertale / Deltarune Chapter 2. That happens to be September 15, meaning we’re just a week out from finding out what that is.

Original (6/1): Toby Fox, the creator of Undertale, has confirmed that he composed a few music tracks for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet.

According to Fox, he was heavily involved with the field music. Once he made a concept sketch, “Game Freak arranged it into many versions that you’ll hear throughout the game.” Fans can actually get a small taste of Fox’s work as it was featured in the new trailer for Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet, available here.

Around the release of Deltarune Chapter 2 on Switch, Nintendo published an interview with creator Toby Fox that touched on various topics like its development and characters. However, the discussion was only available in Japanese. Since it was never made available in English, our team has now gone ahead and translated the interview in full.

Here’s the full Deltarune Chapter 2 talk with Toby Fox – as well as some concept art:

Deltarune Chapter 2 gameplay

Following its appearance in yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, we now have gameplay of Deltarune Chapter 2 on Switch.

Deltarune, coming from Undertale creator Toby Fox, had its first chapter on Switch way back in 2019. This second chapter can be played for free just like the first one.

Here’s a brief overview with some additional information about the game:


Given the massive popularity of Undertale, many fans are looking forward to Deltarune, the next project from creator Toby Fox. Switch owners were given a taste of the game with the release of Chapter 1 for free back in February 2019. Since then though, there hasn’t been much in the way of updates.

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Undertale, this week’s issue of Famitsu has a big feature on the game. The same article provides a development update for Deltarune as well as a new look at Chapter 2.

As translated by Nintendo Everything’s Oni Dino:

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/Shield

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:
