The console version of RPG Maker MV includes double the amount of available materials to use compared to its original 2015 PC release, with the Japanese console version released in November 2018. For the first time in the series, it will also include character voices and music with vocals. Games created with RPG Maker MV can be uploaded and shared online, playable for free by all those who download the RPG Maker MV Player app with no region restrictions. Games created on the Switch and Xbox One versions can also be shared between each other, though games created on other platforms can only be played on that platform.
