For some cause, the Pope has now heard one of the iconic videogame songs of the 2010s, as sighted by Kotaku. Yesterday, throughout a weekly general audience, the audio system within the Vatican blasted Undertale’s “Megalovania” as circus performers juggled and unicycled in entrance of His Holiness. There’s video proof too, in case you, like me, could not imagine this truly occurred.
Late into the circus phase, the tune that backs Undertale’s boss combat with Sans performs and no one bats an eye fixed. This jazzy, trumpet-filled model of “Megalovania” works fairly effectively with the efficiency, and the broad digital camera photographs of the performers juggling balls whereas an expressionless viewers seems on make it further surreal. That, and the way your complete factor takes place in entrance of the haunting glory of Fazzini’s The Resurrection. Possibly in 2023, somebody will play the Halo theme or placed on one thing from Deltarune.

The Pope has truly been uncovered to Undertale earlier than. In 2016, YouTuber MatPat was invited, amongst a bunch of different influencers, to talk with Pope Francis. As a present to characterize the US, MatPat gave the Pope a copy of Undertale. The YouTube persona mentioned the reward was to echo the Pope’s declaration that 2016 was a 12 months of forgiveness and compassion. Right here we’re six years later and the sport is rippling by way of the halls of the Vatican. If the Pope by no means began Toby Fox’s now-beloved indie RPG, perhaps this may change his thoughts.
MatPat, then again, believes the Pope was simply taking his time. “Took him 5 years, however he lastly bought the Sans combat,” he wrote on Twitter.
Earlier than the Pope was launched to Undertale, President Barack Obama was given a copy of The Witcher 2 throughout a visit to Poland, however we’re undecided he performed his gifted sport both. What different video games will slip their manner into the presence of presidency and spiritual officers? And if the Pope did play Undertale, would he even combat Sans within the first place? That may take killing everybody within the sport and taking place the “genocide” route. It is all lots to consider for the primary week of the brand new 12 months.
