If you keep up with indie games at all you've no doubt either played, or at least heard about, Undertale. Created by Toby Fox, who developed the game almost entirely on his own, Undertale is inspired by quirky JRPGs like Earthbound and the Mario & Luigi series. Undertale is unique, moving, and really feels like the kind of game you ought to be playing on a console – unfortunately, the game has only been available on PC up until now.
Well, that's about to change. At E3 2017, Sony announced Undertale is coming to PS4 and PS Vita, and now Toby Fox has revealed a specific release date and a sweet physical collector's edition. Let's focus on that collector's edition first – it comes in a very attractive box and includes the following mementos:
- Available in PS4 or PS Vita versions
- Undertale Soundtrack with cover art by fan artist Cocoa Ando. Also, a couple tracks added, like the PS4 Theme background music
- 24-page booklet featuring a re-illustration of the opening sequence by Temmie Chang! (She made those originally, you know…)
- Reversible cover you'll immediately regret realizing is reversible
- Music Box Locket that was a pain to make because the previous factory kept making it off tempo
- Undertale sheet music booklet featuring six songs with annotations by me that reveal their blatantly obvious inspirations
Man, even if Undertale wasn't my sort of thing (and it is), I'd still want that collector's edition. Very nicely designed. You can check out images of everything included in the package in the gallery below.
The Undertale Collector's Edition can be pre-ordered from Fangamer, right now. Meanwhile, folks who pre-order the regular old digital edition will get a special Undertale PS4 dynamic theme.
Undertale shimmies onto the PS4 and PS Vita on August 15. The physical versions will arrive in September.
