As we reported just last week, Toby Fox has once again reiterated that no new chapters of Deltarune will be launching this year. We're very sad, of course.

However... new screens and music have been showcased via a more substantial development update to tide us over. The update comes via the official Deltarune website (be sure to check out the full post for a listen to the new music!), in which Toby Fox states that "the development of the game is only going to get smoother and smoother".

Here's what he had to say in full:

As stated last time, we've been simultaneously working on Chapters 3, 4 and 5 of DELTARUNE. A few more people are helping out, and the pace of the game creation is definitely improved from last time. The intention was to work on all three chapters simultaneously, but so far we've mostly just gotten work done on Chapter 3 and 4.

Between 3, 4, and 5, we've already exceeded a chapter's worth of bullets, cutscenes, and gimmicks. Not only that, but the next chapters had certain aspects that took a while to set up, and now that those things are in place, the development of the game is only going to get smoother and smoother!

As always, I want this thing to come out the most out of anyone on the planet, so we'll be doing our best to get it done.

As for the new screens? Well, we have them right here for you:

Last but not least, the final image teases an environment, with the blog asking "where could this possibly be?!". Well..? Where do you think, dear readers?

To close out, Fox announces that a 'SPAMTON SWEEPSTAKES' prize / charity auction will take place on Saturday 12PM PDT on the official Deltarune site, so be sure to check that out if you're interested.

What do you make of this new development update from Toby Fox? Looking forward to Chapters 3, 4, and 5? Let us know in the comments!
