RPG Maker MV now allows for side-view battles as a default option, alongside the classic first-person battles.

The game will support touch play on both smartphones and tablets. You can also guide your party from one point to another, via touching the destination. The PC and Mac versions naturally support mouse and or keyboard controls, as well as gamepad support.

The database for RPG Maker MV has been upped to 2,000 items, in comparison to RPG Maker VX Ace, which only had 999 items. This includes things like weapons, armor, items, skills, and more.

Maps are now automatically three-layers, meaning transparent sections can be made by stacking upper-level tiles. This streamlines map-building, by automatically providing three layers for various items.

The resolution in RPG Maker MV has been increased as well, from 544×416 seen in RPG Maker VX Ace to 816×624. Walking character sprites have been increased from 32×32 to 48×48.
