I saw the leaks, sounds good enough to me, more map layers and better performance too and I'm sold already. Looks like an MV on steroids.

Are the screenshots on that MZ page actually from MZ? They look almost identical to MV, only with different icons. I hope it's an improvement, I really do.

It's possibile, what's the point of showing them otherwise?
I think it's like how Ace was compared to VX, a good overall boost in everything.

So, MZ might be the Ace version of MV?

I get that they're keeping stuff under wraps (haven't looked at leaks), but just reading all of the stuff on the MZ steam page....I dunno, I once literally saw Nacho Cheese Doritos with "Now Better Tasting!" written on the bag. Doritos could have at least tried to make the same old thing sound better, bc without telling me more, it sounded like they hadn't done anything.

I think it's just a boost of MV, hopefully an improvement over all its flaws.
I also think MZ doesn't stand for anything in particular, maybe the letter was added because it's after the V, or maybe they used the same typo joke TOEI(?) did with Dragon Ball Z (originally was supposed to be called Dragon Ball 2), lol.

@The Stranger They are. Someone put a comparison of MV and MZ and you can see the difference between the RTP and the UI.
@standardplayer They're not really "leaks", as they've been shared by the official twitter accounts of both RMW and Tkool. That said, there's not all that much extra info yet.

The sprites seem to be a bit better too, from the little I can see in one screenshot, at least the head is not a hot-air balloon like before.

If it has new RTP assets, I'll probably still buy it. I'm terrible with money. xD I do hope it has at least some nice quality of life improvements over MV.

it's also specifically mentioned "we've revamped the animation function" so... that's also a change I guess...

@Dalph a hot-air balloon! I want to divorce and remarry my wife so you can tell jokes at my new wedding

Maybe they finally added hoods and capes in the generator and a more interactive hue changer for the colour of the sprites, alongside more standard behavior sets automatically generated when you choose the parts. That's all I can think about for the character editor.

@The Stranger Yeah, at first glance I thought well it's just the same as MV, until the colour palette was pointed out to be different and it seems (maybe?) the art style is different too. MZ's world tiles looks much sharper compared to MV's.

(And on another note, kinda sad they continued with a generator; I know it's a very unpopular opinion, but everyone ended up looking so samey to me. Hopefully whatever additions they did to it, helps to remedy that.)
