Gaming rag Famitsu has unveiled that a brand new RPG Maker game, “RPG Maker MV”, is in the works for the PC, bound to offer a multitude of new tools and conveniences to help aspiring developers create the games they truly desire – while likely delivering an even higher learning curve than ever before.
Some new features include:
Side-view battles are now default
Support for multiple devices
Mouse and touch input now supported
A big increase to the limit of items in the database
Maps automatically constructed in 3 layers
Games can now be run in high-resolution
An English release is not completely impossible, considering RPG Maker 2003 was translated and subsequently released on Steam not too long ago – though no set launch date has been announced for RPG Maker MV as of yet.
