Based on its predecessor "RPG Maker VX", the event command system and various other areas have been strengthened.
Create your own character graphics by simply using a combination of the supplied original parts. This is one way that game production functions have been revamped substantially.
As the latest installment of the RPG Maker series for Windows, this software becomes the trump card (ace) of RPG production.
- Feature 1: New functionality to create your original characters, and migration to RGSS3 for scripting!
Even if you are unable to draw up graphics, an original character can be made from the combination of parts with the built in "Character Maker" and "Face Graphic Maker". One of many new features to assist with RPG production! In addition, for those with knowledge in extensibility (Script Editing) we've made things much easier with the introduction of "RGSS3".
- Feature 2: Additional Enhancements to Basic Functions
Event commands have been strengthened and additional optional settings have been given. For example, there is a newly added function for specialties called "Feature" in which things like "Provoke" and "Protect" which have become standards in many famous RPGs can be added with ease.
- Feature 3: Making Combat More Interesting with a "Finisher System"
A third gauge called the "TP Gauge" has been implemented following the well-known HP and MP gauges. TP can be accumulated in the course of battle and can be released for use of a finisher! Customizing how TP and the rest of the system works is entirely possible.*The game screen is under development

I'd like to point out that the mentioned function [Feature] may end up being called something else. It is a Japanese word with a few different meanings. The romaji for it is tokuchou. I really couldn't decide what it could be best translated to without knowing a bit more about it. The context really doesn't give too much away. In any case, I will be doing an English translation of the program when it arrives (likely the Japanese trial first), as well as more information as it becomes available and brought to my attention. If anyone has any information that they think I might be interested in, please be kind enough to send it my way through PM or other means. If I have time, and I think the community would like an English version of said material, I'll do my best to see it happen. Thanks!
