Toby Fox also participated in the OST of Little Town Hero, another Game Freak game. which launched on Switch last October. He made part of the OST, and the rest was handled by Hitomi Sato. You can read more about that and check out the track here.
As such, Toby Fox’s participation in Pokemon Sword and Shield isn’t that much of a surprise, and the deal probably happened at around the same time the one for Little Town Hero did.
