Toby Fox Teases “a Little Something” for Undertale’s Fifth Anniversary

Don't expect a surprise Deltarune drop, however.

As of today, we're two weeks away from the fifth anniversary of Toby Fox's Undertale. That means we're also getting close to two years since Fox released the first part of Deltarune, the successor to his hit RPG. We may not see more Deltarune for Undertale's special day, but Fox does promise he has something special lined up for Sept. 15.

To be clear, fans shouldn't hype themselves up for a huge reveal. "There's going to be a special article about it in next week's Famitsu," Fox says on Twitter. "No crazy announcements are planned for the day, but we've prepared a little something to show fans on 9/15."

Keeping that in mind, those eager to hear more about Deltarune shouldn't expect too much more than we saw with last year's anniversary of Undertale, where Fox showed off some new music and art. Then again, in light of another recent tweet from Fox, it seems he's feeling good about his progress on the follow-up. Perhaps good news isn't far away?

"No matter how long I work on this game, so far the feeling of 'I have to make this!' 'I have to see this through to the end!' hasn't subsided at all," Fox wrote in August. "It might even be getting stronger. It helps things are going well recently."

Of course, Deltarune isn't the only thing that's had Fox's attention of late. Last fall he had the honor of including a song in Pokemon Sword and Shield, and we're also close to the one-year anniversary of Undertale's crossover with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

At any rate, Undertale and Deltarune fans should remember to keep an eye on Fox's feed come Sept. 15 to see whatever he's got cooking up. In the meantime, consider checking out Moon. It both inspired Undertale and, as writer Yoshiro Kimura tells Vice, Fox then helped motivate its English localization.
