The overwhelmingly positive reaction to the Sans costume actually got me thinking about how much the speculation scene underestimated the demand for Undertale content in Smash. If you exclusively hung around certain Smash circles, you'd get the impression that Sans and Steve were the most hated characters because they came from "le epic cringe games" or whatever, but the reactions to Sans on Twitter does not reflect that at all. Everyone I've seen on social media was so excited for the Sans costume that it basically overshadowed Banjo's release and the actual character reveal of Terry. I think it speaks volumes to Undertale's popularity that a freaking Mii Costume was able to get that big of a reaction out of people, and should shut up anyone who says it isn't as big of a deal as Shovel Knight or Shantae. Whether it be for the additional DLC or Smash 6, I'm almost certain that a fully realized Undertale character will make it into Smash eventually. The game has left such a huge impact on the gaming landscape, and with the upcoming release of Deltarune, I don't think the Undertale hype will be going away anytime soon.
