Hey, I'm finally allowed to announce this: I was asked to compose a track for Pokémon Sword & Shield! It's a huge honor to be asked to be part of something like this. I hope you enjoy hearing it when the game comes out! pic.twitter.com/VmroEgJWqI— tobyfox (@tobyfox) November 1, 2019
He clarified in a follow up tweet that he hasn't made a main track for the game, he "just thought it was cool".
Fox previously worked on the music for Homestuck and Pokémon developer Game Freak's recent role-player Little Town hero - as well as composing the infamous music for Undertale too.
Anyone familiar with his composing work will probably agree this is very cool news. Fox's musical work has got a pretty distinct style, it'll be interesting to see where it pops up in the new Pokémon title.
