Fans of Undertale have been expecting Sans or Undyne to show up in a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate trailer for a while now, but Toby Fox had other plans in mind for a crossover event, as he made a video in conjunction with New Japan Pro-Wrestling that was meant to promote a Kenny Omega match... which now won't be shown as part of the show.
The promo video is called "Kenny's Quest" and shows a kid playing an Undertale-style video game, where the protagonist is Kenny Omega as he does battle with Hiroshi Tanahashi.
The Kenny's Quest video game is filled with references to Undertale, including several songs from the game (like "His Theme" and a remix of "ASGORE") and the battle between Omega & Tanahashi referencing the fights with Photoshop Flowey and Asriel Dreemurr.
The "Kenny's Quest" video also includes references to different wrestlers who are associated with NJPW and Ring of Honor, including the Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, and Kota Ibushi, who has been both a rival and tag-team partner of Kenny Omega from their time as the Golden Lovers.
"Kenny's Quest" was intended to be played before the Wrestle Kingdom 13 event, where Kenny Omega and Hiroshi Tanahashi are meant to be fighting in the final match, but it will now not be shown at the event or on any official NJPW channel, which is why it has been uploaded to the Being the Elite YouTube channel several days before the event is due to take place.
We still do not know why "Kenny's Quest" is being left off of Wrestle Kingdom 13, as there was clearly a lot of hard work and love poured into its development.
It's possible that the video was released early to try and drum up more international buys for the event, as it will be possible to order the Wrestle Kingdom 13 pay-per-view on Fite TV.
Kenny Omega is well-known for his love of gaming and has provided the voice of Cody in Street Fighter V. He listed Undertale as his number one game of 2018 on GiantBomb, despite the fact that it came out in 2015, as he didn't play it until it was available on the Nintendo Switch.
Wrestle Kingdom 13 will take place on January 4th, 2019.
