The cult classic RPG, Undertale, is finally launching on Xbox for the first time ever more than five years after its original debut and it’ll be available on Game Pass tomorrow, March 17th.
For those of you hearing about Undertale for the first time today, it’s a 2D pixel-art role-playing game, developed independently by Toby Fox. It was originally released for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X on September 15, 2015, for Linux on July 17, 2016, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on August 15, 2017, and for Nintendo Switch on September 18, 2018, and has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews.
Undertale tells the story of a human child who accidentally stumbles upon a large region beneath the surface of the Earth known as the Underground. Here, monsters of all kinds have been banished and a magical barrier conjured by the most powerful human magicians confines them. As the child progresses through the Underground, they meet a cast of colourful and memorable characters, engage in turn-based battles heavily inspired by the bullet-hell games and complete a range of unique and interesting puzzles. The player’s decisions in the game heavily impact the outcome of the narrative and there are multiple story branches and endings depending on whether players choose to kill or spare their enemies. As such, it is possible to clear the game without killing a single enemy.
Undertale will be available on Xbox Game Pass tomorrow, free to existing and new subscribers. Otherwise, the game can be purchased from the Microsoft Store for AUD$14.95.
A collector’s edition with the complete UNDERTALE soundtrack, UNDERTALE sheet music booklet, a 14k gold-plated brass music box locket, a sturdy matchbox-style collector’s box and a standard physical edition of the game will also be available on Xbox, exclusively via Fangamer right here.
