Yesterday, there were rumours swirling around the internet about a Nintendo port of Toby Fox's critically acclaimed indie RPG Undertale. These were triggered by a Nintendo staffer attempting to get in touch with Fox via Twitter, and after the predictable reaction online, Fox has posted his own comments to clarify the situation.

Fox explained that he has spoken to Nintendo previously about a port, and that because the title has been created in Game Maker, porting it to the Wii U or 3DS wouldn't be easy.


He admitted that he'd reached the point where he "might as well try it", but stopped short of making an official announcement. He also added that he wouldn't be able to program it himself, as he "doesn't know any actual programming languages".


Undertale has recieved widespread acclaim since its launch, despite its crude visuals. A key innovation is the ability to befriend and understand monsters rather than kill them, and this presents plenty of troubling moral choices throughout the adventure.

Would you like to see a version on the 3DS or Wii U? Perhaps you've already played it? Let us know what you think.
