Toby Fox has finally revealed more details on the mysterious Deltarune, confirming on TwitLonger that the game is in fact not a full-fledged successor to Undertale.
Despite sharing many similarities with the critically acclaimed action-RPG, Deltarune is set in a different world to Undertale. Furthermore, he made it clear that we’re going to have to wait a fair bit before getting our hands on the next chapter.
‘Deltarune’s world is a different one [than Undertale’s],’ said Fox. ‘With different characters, that have lived different lives. A whole new story will happen …I don’t know what you call this kind of game […] It’s just a game you can play after you complete Undertale, if you want to.’
‘Lots of things make this game harder to make than the last time. Since I haven’t started assembling the team yet I have absolutely no estimation of its completion. It could take up to 999 years depending on the efficiency level.’
Deltarune was released free on PC earlier this week, following a series of cryptic teasers on Undertale’s Twitter account.
