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.

    You can script it in yourself. If you are making a game with RPG Maker (or any engine) and you don't know how to script, you may as well not even bother.

    They should call it "Classic RPG Maker".

    There are several RPG Maker version on steam already, all translated. That includes RPG Maker Ace from 2007. So I'm 99% sure that MV will get western release as well.

    Nice to see RPG Maker is still around. I hope to see it on Linux someday, or that the new EasyRPG becomes as good as it.

    Instead of defaulting to 'side view battles', why don't they implement a multitude of battle types and let the player decide? Because they're lazy fuckers, that's why.

    Bet you don't even try to make RPGs, which makes you're one of those lazy fuckers.

    Not the same anon, but I made a pretty lengthy RPG myself, modded it out with custom scripts, unique/original storyline. Once I finished it, I realised I couldn't release it because it contains copyrighted material (music etc).

    Oh well, at least it was fun coding it and watching it work (especially after spending hours trying to work out why something didn't work).

    Well, you could release it for other people to look at it on a game sharing site like Game Jolt, just not for money. Copyright aint shit if it's free.

    yeah, most developers just mix and matches existing stuff to try out, releasing it for free, and get's feedback.

    Tried The Drunken Paladin? It's a free RPG made by a humor genius, and one of the best among the users. He got a lot of copyrighted stuff there, but it doens't seem to stop him.
