The chiptune pop band Anamanaguchi has recently debuted a new cover of a song inspired by their work. The song is 'Hopes and Dreams,' one of the iconic songs from the Undertale soundtrack.

Many video game fans may know Anamanaguchi from their work on the side-scrolling beat-'em-up Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Bryan Lee O'Malley, the game is remembered fondly for its gameplay, catchy chiptune soundtrack, and for (formerly) being one of those games that's very hard to buy nowadays. One person inspired by their music was Toby Fox, creator of Undertale and Deltarune. When creating the soundtrack for Undertale, Toby took the inspiration he got from Anamanaguchi and channeled it into the song 'Hopes and Dreams,' which players may recognize as one of the final songs in the Pacifist route during the final battle.

 

Yesterday, this inspiration went full circle as Anamanaguchi played their own cover of 'Hopes and Dreams' during a show that was part of their Scott Pilgrim OST tour. After the show, they posted a tweet that comes with a link where fans can download/listen to the song for free, as well as watch a music video of the song made up of scenes from Undertale. Toby Fox quote tweeted their announcement to give a shoutout to the band, who responded in kind by saying "luv 2 you from the guchi tour van." If watching the music video or downloading the song isn't enough, Anamanaguchi will also be playing this song during their Scott Pilgrim OST tour this year.

You can find several links to play or buy the song, including a free download on Bandcamp, here.
