Undertale's Creator Pens a Special Song for Pokemon Sword and Shield

Undertale's Creator Pens a Special Song for Pokemon Sword and Shield

"It's not like a main track or anything. I just thought it was cool."

It's been a good year for fans of Undertale and its creator, Toby Fox. Though we still don't know when the next chunk of Deltarune is coming, Fox's work keeps popping up all over the place—and now, by way of Pokemon Sword and Shield, Fox's music may reach its largest audience yet.

On Twitter, Fox says he was asked to compose a song for Pokemon Sword and Shield. "It's a huge honor to be asked to be part of something like this," he writes.

There's no word on where players will be able to hear Fox's track once they go adventuring in Galar, but don't expect to hear it right as you start. "It's not like a main track or anything," Fox adds in a follow-up tweet. "I just thought it was cool."

It's another entry in a long list of cool things Fox has been involved with in 2019. This is Fox's second collaboration with Game Freak, as he contributed most of the music for October's Little Town Hero. This year also saw the addition of Undertale's Sans as a Mii Fighter costume in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. On top of all that, 2019 has given us two Undertale crossovers in the world of professional wrestling—first, in collaboration with wrestler Kenny Omega for an event in Japan, and just again this past week when Omega donned a Sans costume and entered the ring to Megalovania on All Elite Wrestling's international television broadcast.

Last month, Fox shared a progress update on Deltarune, Undertale's not-quite-sequel. Deltarune's first chapter debuted almost exactly a year ago, and is available for the PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.

Pokemon Sword and Shield will come out for the Nintendo Switch on November 15. For more, check out USG's guide to the differences between Pokemon Sword and Shield.
