RPG Maker MV

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Galen’s back and he gives us nothing. Meanwhile, Oni Dino can hardly contain his excitement for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. We analyze the trailer a bit for sneak peeks and have some fun wondering what the game could be like, based on our experiences with Hyrule Warriors and Breath of the Wild. Addition, we feign our surprise at No More Heroes 3’s delay, we aren’t talking about Ubisoft, Galen’s creative spark is awoken by RPG Maker, Oni Dino boomerangs on Manifold Garden, Gleamlight is dim, and more.

Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

In celebration of today’s western release on Switch, NIS America has readied a new launch trailer for RPG Maker MV. Check it out below.

RPG Maker MV is available both physically and digitally for Switch. In case you missed it, read our review here.

System: Switch
Release date: September 8, 2020
Developer: Kadokawa
Publisher: NIS America


When RPG Maker Fes came out on 3DS years ago and I had the pleasure of reviewing it, I spent countless hours creating short titles as I learned the basics of game development in an intuitive fashion. Being able to not only create, but share your work with others while having a seemingly endless supply of content made it a consistently great time for those that wanted to play simple experiences on-the-go. Even better, despite its name, RPG Maker lends itself nicely other sorts of genres as well. RPG Maker MV on Switch now sees the application migrate to Nintendo’s newest platform. Despite having one less screen, the system lends itself well as a creative canvas to see video game ideas come to life with a retro aesthetic.

It’ll be a few more days until RPG Maker MV arrives on Switch in the west, but we have footage of the English build now. Check out the gameplay below.

RPG Maker MV is due out for Switch on September 8.

The wait for RPG Maker MV on Switch in the west is almost over. Today, NIS America announced that the game-creation tool will arrive in North America on September 8, Europe on September 11, and Oceania on September 18.

We have the following overview and trailer for RPG Maker MV:

It’s been a long wait for RPG Maker MV’s Switch version in the west. Japan has had the game creation title since November 2018, but it’s still not out in North America and Europe. The good news is that, despite a lack of news from NIS America, the localized version is still in the works.

During this week’s New Game+ Expo presentation, RPG Maker MV briefly appeared during the montage segment. It was shown off for just a few seconds which is probably why it went under the radar, but we did receive confirmation that NIS America is now planning a Fall 2020 launch. This is the first update we’ve had in quite some time.

In January 2019, NIS America delayed RPG Maker MV from its planned February release. It received a new trailer a couple of months later, though that’s pretty much it since then. Here’s hoping that there won’t be any additional delays and the localization process goes smoothly.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Nintendo World Report has some direct-feed footage of the Switch version of RPG Maker MV in English. Have a look at the gameplay below.

NIS America published a new video for RPG Maker MV today. Take a look at the “[Your Game Here] trailer below.

What up, kids and squids?!

This week on NEP, Oni and Galen cover the news and rumors spoiler-free, and go crazy on discussion over announced games for Nintendo platforms in 2019. There are actually SO MANY to talk about that we had to split it up! Tune in for part 1 and let’s talk about what games we’re hyped for!

RPG Maker MV was initially scheduled to launch in the west next month. Unfortunately, that’ll no longer be happening.

NIS America announced today that RPG Maker MV has been delayed to later in 2019 in North America and Europe. The company cited “ongoing issues with development”.
