Gotcha Gotcha Games announced RPG Maker Unite launches on April 27 for PC via the Unity Asset Store for $99.99. A PC (Steam) release is also on the way this year, but an official release date was not announced.
RPG Maker Unite was previously delayed from its March 30 release date to April 6, but a subsequent delay pushed the title to its current April 27 release date. Gotcha Gotcha Games apologizes to fans about the previously delays, and the release will proceed as intended in the Unity Asset Store. More details about the Steam release will be revealed at a later date.
Players who have successfully entered their contact info in the Unity Asset Store before launch and completed their purchase before May 11 at 23:59 JST will receive a special bonus. After meeting the criteria, players may download the Mob Character Set for free as an early-bird bonus. Moreover, all players may download RPG Maker MZ Character Pack vol.1 as a free bonus.
Here’s an overview of the new title via the official Steam page:
