Is Deltarune Chapter 2 free on the Nintendo Switch? When Deltarune Chapter 1 came out, creator Toby Fox made the game free to play, but said the rest of the chapters in the game would be paid additions. Has he followed through on that plan, or have things changed since he first made the decree?

Is Deltarune Chapter 2 Free on Nintendo Switch?

Despite his initial plan to sell Chapters 2 through 5 of Deltarune, Toby Fox decided to release Deltarune Chapter 2 for free when he unveiled it earlier this month.

"The world has been really tough for everyone recently," Fox wrote on the game's website. "So I decided to release DELTARUNE Chapter 2 for free."

On PC, this meant that players could download it from the storefront of their choosing and play the chapter on its own. On Switch, things work slightly differently. For one thing, Switch players had to wait an extra week and a half for the game to hit their platform. For another, rather than release Chapter 2 as a standalone item on the Switch's shop, Fox chose to add it as an update for Chapter 1 and change its name.

So, if players are looking to try out Deltarune Chapter 2 on the Switch, they just need to either download it from the Switch's digital storefront or update their download of Chapter 1. Either way, the game remains free.
