RPG Maker MV Will Head to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch!

RPG Maker MV

RPG Maker is going console! RPG Maker MV will make its way to console, namely PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. The announcement is revealed during the recent Anime Expo, and not only the announcement is revealed, but also the trailer.

In addition, NIS America also planned a limited edition for the game’s console version that includes a copy of the game, Creatpr’s Log, and a collector box. It will cost $59.99.

What is RPG Maker MV, anyway? Can you make an RPG with it? Of course, the name says it all! Read below for more explanation from the game’s Wikipedia page:

RPG Maker is a program that allows users to create their own role-playing video games. Most versions include a tile set based map editor (tilesets are called chipsets in pre-XP versions), a simple scripting language for scripting events, and a battle editor. All versions include initial premade tilesets, characters, and events which can be used in creating new games. One feature of the PC Versions of RPG Maker programs is that a user can create new tilesets and characters, and add any new graphics the user wants.

Despite being geared towards creating role-playing video games, the engine also has the capability to create games of other genres, such as adventure games (see Yume Nikki) or visual novels with minimal tweaking.

Released by Degica on October 23, 2015, RPG Maker MV includes a number of improvements over previous versions, having multiplatform support, side-view battles, and high resolution features. It is also the first engine in the series to use JavaScript instead of Ruby, with the addition of plugins. Completed games can also be played on a mobile device. RPG Maker MV also goes back to layered tilesets, a feature that was removed in RPG Maker VX and VX Ace.

RPG Maker MV is already available for PC and will launch for PS4, Switch, and Xbox One some time later in 2019.
