Developer Toby Fox has been such a renowned name in the gaming community and industry for creating Undertale, a 2D RPG that gives you the option not to hurt anyone. Released in 2015, the title and its characters have been featured in so many other games since then, such as Sans being a Mii costume in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
In 2018, Toby Fox released the first chapter of Deltarune for free, which is Undertale’s sequel. Since then, fans have been waiting for an update regarding the upcoming game. That said, we may be hearing news about this highly-anticipated title soon, as Japanese magazine Famitsu will be celebrating Undertale’s 5th anniversary.
UNDERTALE’s 5th anniversary is in 2 weeks! There’s going to be a special article about it in next week’s Famitsu. No crazy announcements are planned for the day, but we’ve prepared a little something to show fans on 9/15.🐕

This issue of Famitsu will be available on September 10, and it’s said that part of its Undertale coverage will feature development updates as well as screenshots of Deltarune’s second chapter.
That being said, we still don’t know how heavy this coverage will be, or if it will contribute much to the entire Undertale feature as a whole. The cover for this Famitsu issue was drawn by Temmie Chang, who played a huge part in Undertale as well.
Chang was the creator of the very lovable race of monsters in the game called Temmies. Outside of Undertale and Deltarune, Chang has also released an RPG game entitled Dweller’s Empty Path.

Undertale was such a huge hit that the game had an estimated 3.5 million players on Steam alone back in 2018. The title can be described as an “anti-RPG” and Fox says that he took inspiration from classic games such as Moon.
We can definitely see how this can be called an “anti-RPG” though, as one of the title’s selling points is the fact that you have the choice to start and finish the game without having to hurt any of your enemies.
With Deltarune, Fox took many of the same elements from the first game as well as the lovable characters, although the time and setting are now completely different. Deltarune’s first chapter was definitely a wild yet nostalgic ride, and we’re so excited to see what Toby Fox has instore for this genuinely amazing franchise.
