Undertale launches for Xbox on March 16
8-4 has announced that hit indie RPG Undertale will release for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One tomorrow, on March 16, priced at $14.99 and available as part of Xbox Game Pass. Undertale originally releases for Steam in September 2015, followed by a PS4/Vita port in August 2017 and a Switch port in September 2018.
You can find the announcement from Xbox Wire shared below.
At long last, Undertale is coming to Xbox! For the first time ever, players on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S will have the chance to experience one of indie gaming’s most beloved role-playing games when it launches on Xbox Game Pass tomorrow, March 16.
As many of you know, Undertale isn’t exactly new to the gaming world. In fact, this past September, we celebrated the fifth anniversary of its original PC release with a free concert streamed on YouTube (which you should absolutely check out — after you’ve cleared the game, of course!). But the wonderful thing about Undertale is that despite its retro-inspired visuals — which are sure to evoke memories of some of the 16-Bit classics of yesteryear — the experience itself is still very much fresh and distinct.
In Undertale, every monster is an individual and every interaction is unique; you can choose to fight, or you can choose to show mercy — and how you play and what you choose will affect the outcome of the story. With a hilarious and heartwarming cast of endearing characters, an incredibly catchy soundtrack, and truly standout RPG gameplay, it’s no surprise that the game continues to surprise and delight new players to this day.
If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed that the aforementioned PC version of Undertale has been available on the Microsoft Store for a while now. While the Xbox version provides for a largely similar experience, there are a few Xbox-specific enhancements designed to make for a more comfortable time for those playing on a home console. Because of these, progress and save data between the two versions are unfortunately not compatible. But this also means that, similar to previous console releases, the Xbox version features its own little…shrine, one might say…of exclusive content to look out for.
We know it’s been a long time coming, but we’re extremely excited to finally be bringing Undertale to Xbox players the world over. Whether it’s your first time exploring the underworld or your 50th, we hope the experience will be unforgettable!
Undertale will be available March 16 with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and will be available for purchase from the Microsoft Store for Xbox for $14.99 (does not support Xbox Play Anywhere).
