Undertale’s 5th Anniversary Concert Is Now Available To Stream Online

On September 15, 2015, a little game called Undertale released on PC. Its creator, Toby Fox, did not anticipate how massive it would become. Spawning fan art, plushies, and fan games, Undertale continues to remain part of video game pop culture five years after its release. Currently, fans are waiting for the rest of Deltarune, the (kind of) followup to the critically acclaimed Undertale. Recently, Fox offered an update on Deltarune’s progress.

This week, Undertale reached its fifth anniversary. To celebrate, Famitsu gave Undertale the cover, and a special section in the magazine’s most recent issue. In addition, fans were  treated to a free online concert.

Now, the official Undertale YouTube channel has uploaded the entire Undertale 5th Anniversary Concert. The concert was originally conducted by MUSIC Engine on May 6, 2019, in Tokyo. It has been “remastered with new content” for the stream. It was streamed on September 15 for Undertale’s fifth anniversary, but is now available to watch for those who missed it. You can view the concert stream below. The concert begins after the 45 mark, although there is some nice artwork and fun dialogue from Undertale’s characters beforehand. Sans also makes a humorous entrance right before it starts.

Simply put, the concert is impressive whether you have played the game or not. One can pick any of the music and be amazed by how well it’s brought to life. The “Snowy” theme begins perfectly with the piano before transitioning to the soft violin, and “Finale” is a high energy jaunt befitting of the climax. And, as expected, seeing “Megalovania” conducted in unison is surreal. The large rounds of applause are certainly earned.

One can see the emotional impact Undertale has had on individuals by looking at the YouTube comments. Undertale – its characters, story and music – means a lot to many people around the world. The fact such a small scale game received a professional concert speaks to Undertale’s continuing legacy. 50 years from now, fans will still feel filled with determination as Hopes and Dreams begins to play.
