RPG Maker MV makes the jump from PC to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Following in the footsteps of Super Mario Maker, NIS America has partnered with Kadokawa to bring the long running game making toolkit to the latest generation of consoles.
The series, which contains several editions on PC and console editions on Super Famicom, Sega Saturn, GameBoy Advance, PS1/2, and Nintendo 3DS, will enter the current-gen world with the first entry for an Xbox console. RPG Maker MV previously released on Steam in 2015.
You can pre-order the game right now for $60 on all three consoles. Though the RPG Maker MV Player app will be available for free download at launch for users to play games created by others.
Like earlier entries in the series, RPG Maker MV allows creative storytellers to make their very own video games. For those of us who grew up on Chronotrigger and other SNES RPG classics this toolkit taps into that nostalgia.
No official release date was put on the game yet beyond “2019”.
