History Recast (HiRe) is the reboot of Swapshift, an Undertale Role-Swap AU combining Underswap and Storyshift.

Swapshift was rebooted into History Recast because Brenny114 complained about people making fun of it.[1] So Andoro-T and Brenny114 rebooted it, with Andoro-T saying that "Swapshift" is basically a shitpost, has bad reputation, and that he wasn't happy with the current comics.[2]

Intro Text

Long ago, two races ruled over the Earth: HUMANS and MONSTERS.

One day, war broke out between the two races.

After a long battle,the humans were victorious.

They sealed the monsters underground with a magic spell.

Many years later…

MT. Ebott 201X

8th Human fell into the mountain.

With their determination they freed the monsters, reset and do it again.

After saving them got boring to them…

Their curiosity made them reset once again…

This time they didn’t want to save a single monster…

Because they wanted to know what would happen, if they destroyed every single monster there was…

With determination they succeeded and erased the entire world…

But with a help of a “partner” they brought the world back, but it had it’s price…

The 8th human gave their soul to their “partner”. And the world was restored.

But the human wasn’t satisfied yet, they wanted to know what would happened if they eradicated the monsters again and again…

So they continued to genocide monster, destroying the world and restoring it…

Over and over and over again…

Until one a certain genocide…

Their “partner” had had enough.

They fought the 8th human and with the power of their new soul.

The 1st human was victorious, and struck down the 8th human.

Without their soul and it’s DETERMINATION, the 8th human couldn’t reset, save, or reload.

With THEIR new soul the 1st human reset the world, but it wasn’t suppose to happen.

And something went wrong…[3]
