I can't recommend RPG Maker MV enough. Not only is it an ideal way for JRPG fans to engage with their favourite genre without needing to go and learn how to code first, but it's also a low-pressure and undemanding way for people with an interest in game development to understand how game developers think and create. The Switch version is less robust than the PC version and you're not going to be producing anything that you can make money with like you can on PC, but as a toy and a sandbox, RPG Maker is a delight. I can't wait to see the kind of creativity that RPG fans come up with (and yes, I will try and upload a game of my own at some point too... if I ever find the time to finish one).
RPG Maker MV on Switch is a stripped back and limited version of its PC counterpart that removes the ability to integrate your own custom elements as well as the use of plugins. There's also very little in the way of help or tutorials and the UI can be clunky and slow to navigate. However, if you can make peace with these limitations, what's here is still a vast, hugely flexible bit of game-making software that provides those with the patience to get to grips with its systems almost limitless potential for RPG-making fun. We can't wait to see what players come up with over the coming weeks and months ahead and the free RPG Maker MV Player means that all Switch owners get to share in the fun and perhaps be inspired to join in down the line. If you're hugely serious about RPG making you may do best to stick to the PC version, but, if you just want to have some creative fun within the limits of the assets provided here, you'll have a blast.
RPG Maker MV for Nintendo Switch is a title that allows you to fully exploit your imagination and creativity thanks to the limited but wide amount of resources and possibilities it offers to build your own video game, although it is limited by its controls, its online mode and its price.
Creating RPG on Switch or editing them is not as comfortable as on PC. Even so, this version of RPG Maker MV offers a correct gateway to the world of video game development. You could ask for more from this port.
RPG Maker MV provides plenty of tools, but the least possible direction on how to use them. The tutorial is embarrassingly bad, and a help section is nonexistent. Unless you’re experienced with this series, skip this Switch port.
