The fans of Undertale who have been waiting patiently to play the game on the Nintendo Switch won't have to wait much longer, as a pre-order for the special edition of the game has confirmed that it will be arriving in September.
The physical editions of Undertale are being handled by Fangamer, who also handle all of the other official merchandise for the game. They have put up a listing on their website for both the Collector's Edition and the Standard Edition of the game, with the preorder information stating that the game will not ship until September.
The Standard Edition of Undertale for the Nintendo Switch comes with a copy of the game and a twenty-four-page story booklet that was illustrated by Temmie Chang, who worked as an artist on the game and inspired the creation of the Temmie species.
The Collector's Edition of Undertale for the Nintendo Switch comes with the game and the story booklet, as well as a brass locket that acts as a wind-up music box, a book of sheet music of the game's soundtrack, and a double-disc CD set of the soundtrack of Undertale.
The Nintendo Switch version of Undertale was announced during the March 2018 Direct, where it was given the release date of "eventually". We have heard almost nothing about the game since then, except for the fact that a new character will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game, in a similar manner to the Dog Shrine that was exclusive to the console ports of Undertale.
The fans have been requesting a Switch port of Undertale since the release of the other console versions of the game, and it seemed inevitable that the game would each a Nintendo platform eventually, seeing as it was highly inspired by the EarthBound/Mother series.
The fact that Undertale is now coming to a Nintendo platform has also raised speculation over whether the game would be represented in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Source Gaming reported on their Twitter account that Masahiro Sakurai had mentioned Undertale by name in one of his columns for Weekly Famitsu magazine, which has prompted some to believe that we may see an Undertale rep in the game.
Now that King K. Rool has been announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the sky is the limit in terms of who could make it into the game. With Undertale coming to the Nintendo Switch, is it too much of a stretch to think that we may see a stage based on the game or an Undertale assist trophy?
Undertale for the Nintendo Switch will be released in September.
