    It’s unknown at this point just how big of a project Deltarune will turn out to be – only Chapter 2 is confirmed as of the time of writing – but this first chapter proves to be a solid, if a little too safe, take on the unique gameplay and humour that made Undertale such a hit. At worst, Deltarune Chapter 1 is just a smaller and shallower version of Undertale; at best, it’s a promising glimpse into a much more ambitious project that will hopefully grow to escape the shadow of its forerunner. Regardless, you can download Deltarune Chapter 1 for free right now from the eShop; we’d encourage you to give it a download and see what you think.

  1. The only major complaint that I have with Deltarune is that its creator doesn’t know when it will be completed. He has talked about putting a development team together, but we’ll have to wait and see if that ever comes to fruition. Nevertheless, I’m eager to take a second look when this sequel, or spinoff, or whatever this is, is fully realized—I just hope this happens sooner rather than later.

    Amazing. If you loved Undertale, you're gonna love this too. Story, writing and music are once again incredible and the Battle and RPGAmazing. If you loved Undertale, you're gonna love this too. Story, writing and music are once again incredible and the Battle and RPG elements are fleshed out quite a bit more than in Undertale. My favourite thing are the little musical throwbacks to Undertale, gives me a feeling that no other game has given me before. Also, for a free demo, it's quite long with approx. 3 hours of playtime. Can't wait until the full game comes out! Expand

It's a free game for the switch which means everybody with a switch should try it. I haven't even played Undertale yet but now I feel like I need it. In the gaming industry you almost never see comedy games besides indie games which are normally only on PC. This is the first RPG I've enjoyed, everyone should try it. Expand

    If you already played and liked Undertale, you should try this. Fight mechanics are improved, but the tone of the game it is the same.
