Nearly six years after it originally launched, Undertale makes its debut on Xbox One and Xbox Series X via Xbox Game Pass on March 16. The indie role-playing game from Toby Fox will have “a few Xbox-specific enhancements,” publisher 8-4 Ltd. announced on Monday.

“We know it’s been a long time coming, but we’re extremely excited to finally be bringing Undertale to Xbox players the world over,” 8-4’s John Ricciardi said in a post on Xbox Wire.

Undertale debuted on Windows PC and Mac in September 2015, and two years later was joined by a console port to PlayStation 4. A Nintendo Switch version followed in 2018.

Ricciardi said Xbox version of Undertale will largely resemble the one available to PC players through the Microsoft Store. “There are a few Xbox-specific enhancements designed to make for a more comfortable time for those playing on a home console,” Ricciardi said. “Because of these, progress and save data between the two versions are unfortunately not compatible.”

Undertale, a 2D RPG well known for its soundtrack and numerous classic gaming motifs, was widely hailed during its original launch, and later earned several nominations from the British Academy Games Awards, the DICE Awards, The Game Awards, and the Game Developers Choice Awards.
