NIS America is bringing RPG Maker Fes for 3DS to North America and Europe this summer both physically and digital, the company announced at its 2017 press event. It will support English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish text.

A limited edition is available for pre-order via the NIS America Store for $49.99, and includes a copy of the game, 36-page softcover art book, one-disc original soundtrack, and collector’s box.

The game, first launched in Japan on November 24, 2016, allows players to make their own RPGs using a wealth of pre-made assets and share them with other users. A free RPG Maker Fes Player application to be released on the Nintendo eShop will allow all users to browse and download the creations of users who own RPG Maker Fes.
