Toby Fox Shared His Opinion on His Musical Creation in the Creation of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple
- Dec 22, 2022
Toby Fox, the creator of Undertale and Deltarune, just recently shared his contributions to the soundtrack of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Fox announced he’d be working on the game's music before its release, and now we have some insight into what exactly he wrote. This article will discuss Toby Fox's involvement in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet's soundtrack, as well as other projects he is currently working on.
Fox has contributed three tracks to Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: “Tera Raid Battles”, “Academy Ace Tournament”, and “Battle! Zero Lab". He also composed “Area Zero", which was rearranged by Pokémon composer Go Ichinose. In addition to that, Fox wrote a melody for the song "Academy" which ended up being used as a field theme throughout the game. All songs using this melody were made by composers other than Fox himself. This isn't his first contribution to a Pokémon game either - Sword and Shield featured some tunes from him too.
It is great seeing collaborations like this continue between developers like Toby Fox and iconic franchises such as Pokémon because it helps shape their sonic direction in an interesting way that can be appreciated by fans all around the world. As for other projects from Toby fox, however - work on Deltarune is still ongoing but unfortunately, there won't be any new chapters released until 2022, at least according to his newsletter update from earlier this year. Until then, we'll have Area Zero (and maybe more) to keep us occupied while we wait for further updates about Deltarune or any future games developed by Toby himself!
Overall it seems like Toby fox continues to contribute both musically and narratively towards popular video games out there today, with Pokemon being only one example among many others such as Undertale or Deltarune. It is exciting getting news about how much further these projects are going each time, so hopefully, soon enough, we get another big announcement from Toby regarding something else involving music, story-telling, or perhaps even gaming overall. Perhaps something even bigger than what he has done thus far?
In conclusion, it is amazing seeing how much influence Toby fox has had within various different video games over recent years, with Pokemon being only one example! His latest project involves composing tunes for Pokemon Scarlet &Violet along with writing a 'majestic theme melody for "academy," which was subsequently used throughout the entire game. We look forward even more developments coming our way soon, hopefully!
