Probably one of the most successful indie RPGs of the past decade, Undertale has had a profound impact on modern gaming with its style, approach, and themes. Now we’re finally going to see all of that come to the Nintendo Switch… someday. As part of the Nintendo Direct video that happened today, an unexpected chain of events occurred when someone shut off the lights and we saw Sans and Papyrus on our screens, marking the release of Undertale to Nintendo’s console and yet another addition to their Nindies category. Unfortunately, the end screen where they give some hint about a release date looked like this.
Yes, we’re sadly left wondering when it will come out. The buzz online is pretty positive for it to be released on the Switch, but its almost immediately followed by the question of how long it’s really going to take to port the game over to the Switch and what the word “eventually” really means. Is it a genuine question where they don’t know what’s up, or is this just Toby Fox messing with people in the game’s own sense of humor and making you do all the guesswork? We’ll probably know at E3 or PAX West, but for now, enjoy the trailer.
