It wouldn't be a day right before E3 if a leak didn't come up right?
This leak is for the Nintendo Switch and comes from a listing on the Mexican version of Amazon. The listing showcased RPG Maker MV, being published by NIS America.
The listing, which has since been taken down by Amazon, was given a Google Translate into English by Nintendo Everything. It makes mention of several of the game's selling points, from using the software to develop your game along with the ability to brand, upload and play other created games online. You will be able to download and play other's titles even without having the RPG Maker MV software.
Interestingly enough the game comes with both English and Japanese voices and was given a release date, November 27th, 2018.
There is currently no confirmation from Nintendo or NIS regarding RPG Maker MV for the Switch, but the game will likely be part of Nintendo's own showcase during E3 this year.
Quick TakeNowadays RPG Maker games are dime a dozen, but the appeal of this franchise for over 20 years has been the ability to make your own game. Putting it on the Switch is just another natural move to do, especially considering the software already has iOS and Android support. This is simply another natural fit for Nintendo.
