Yesterday, the NIS America, Inc. Twitter account announced that RPG Maker MV’s western console release in February for the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 systems has been delayed. Apparently, “due to issues with development, the release of RPG Maker MV will be delayed to later this year,” according to the NIS America, Inc. Twitter account.
Further, Siliconera.com reports that there were several errors with the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 RPG Maker MV versions that are available now in Japan. They also note that the Xbox One version of the title was delayed to Winter 2019 and is currently being scheduled to release in 2019, in general.
More importantly, Siliconera.com reports,
“An official tweet from November 18, 2018 noted that the developer was aware of problems that would result in the software freezing or save data being corrupted and was working on fixes.”
NIS America, Inc.’s tweet on Twitter alerted fans that they “apologize for the inconvenience, and are taking action in order to deliver the best product possible.” Though no specific release date was given outside of the delayed announcement for the game’s western release, players who want to play the game can purchase it in Japan now.
Yet, for those who were looking forward to RPG Maker MV’s western release, you may have to wait a bit longer. Hopefully, this extra development time will help the developers fix the game’s current problems.
