Undertale Archives - Nintendo Everything

A listing for Undertale popped up on Amazon Japan yesterday. In addition to confirming a physical release, the page included a September 15 release date.

That listing has since been updated. We now have the boxart as pictured above. Amazon has also changed the release date to December 31, so it’s unclear if the original September 15 date was incorrect or information that was shared a bit too early.

Finally, below are a few screenshots from Undertale:


The popular indie game Undertale was announced for Switch earlier this year during a Nintendo Direct. There’s been little news since, but Amazon Japan has come through with new information.

According to the retailer, Undertale is launching September 15 in Japan. A physical copy will be offered. Amazon Japan has Undertale down for 4,320 yen.

Undertale, a massively successful RPG from Toby Fox, was announced for Switch during this week’s Nintendo Direct. The reveal was very short though, and we only heard that it would be released “eventually”.

If you had any concerns about Undertale missing a 2018 launch on Switch, you don’t have to worry any longer. We now have confirmation that it’s arriving sometime this year. It’s far from a specific release window, but it’s certainly better than “eventually”.


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:
