This morning at Anime Expo 2018, NIS America made a few game announcements including the official release of RPG Maker MV in the west. Not only is it headed our way, but the game will be released on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox One, making it one of the few titles in the series to be released on all the major consoles at the same time.
You can pre-order the game right now for $60 on all three consoles, which will also include the RPG Maker MV Creator's Log for you to jot down notes and get some tips, the official soundtrack on CD and a collector's box.
No official release date was put on the game yet beyond "2019", so hopefully we'll get a date around PAX West or Tokyo Game Show. Enjoy the official game description and trailer below!
