RPG Maker MV

NIS America is bringing RPG Maker MV to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2019.

NIS America has confirmed that Kadokawa Coproration’s RPG game-making software will be released on console next year.

RPG Maker MV was originally released on PC in 2015, and helps aspiring game developers to create narratives and RPG gameplay mechanics using a robust suite of game-making tools. The tool set covers everything from dialogue and characters, to combat and the creation of overworlds and maps.


The RPG Maker MV Player app will also be released on all platforms as a free download so that players without the game can download user-created RPGs free of charge.

RPG Maker MV will also get a Limited Edition release on all platforms that includes a soundtrack and log book.

RPG Maker MV Limited Edition contents:

  • A physical copy of the game
  • Creator’s Log
  • Official Soundtrack
  • Collector’s Box

RPG Maker MV Limited Edition

We’re pretty excited for this. We dabbled with some of the games created in RPG Maker Fes – which was released on the Nintendo 3DS last year –  and was impressed by some of the quirky stories and miniature adventures we discovered.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
