Undertale

One of 2015's very best gets a well-handled port to PlayStation - and Toby Fox's wonderful RPG finds the perfect home on the Vita.

As ever, it's been a confusing time for Undertale fans. A few days ago, the official Undertale Twitter account released a file for something that seemed to be a survey, but turned out to be a demo for the follow-up game to Undertale. Named Deltarune, the game's first chapter kept players entertained for between two to three hours, and even came with its own original soundtrack.

Ask any Undertale fan what they love most about the game and chances are they'll name the soundtrack. The original music was composed by creator Toby Fox, and received a great deal of praise for its clever use of leitmotifs (recurring themes) to represent each of the main characters. Like 8-bit Wagner, really.

Undertale coming to Nintendo Switch

Cult classic coming… at some point?

Undertale, Toby Fox's cult classic RPG that takes its inspiration from Nintendo's Earthbound series, among other things, is coming to Nintendo hardware for the first time.

Undertale review

Undertale is a game all about endings, so it's fitting that its console release comes towards the tail-end of one particular piece of hardware's life. If this is a finale of sorts for Sony's PlayStation Vita, then it's a wonderfully apt one - there's something irresistible about the pairing of a handheld that became the home of a number of indie darlings and this, the indie phenomenon of the past few years.
