Nintendo has confirmed that the turn-based tactical game Triangle Strategy will release for Nintendo Switch on 4th March 2022.
The game leans on the HD-2D art style of Octopath Traveler, but applies it to a different genre, with turn-based tactics now in the spotlight instead of classical JRPG action.
Triangle Strategy promises to have deep and meaningful RPG story that’s full of choices and shifting consequences through a branching narrative. You play as Serenoa, heir of House Wolffort, and command a group of warriors through a tangled plot, leaning on your convictions of Utility, Morality and Liberty. It’s not just you that shapes the story at key points, but other characters as well who will cast votes on the Scales of Conviction, determining the fate of the continent of Norzelia.
Following on from the game’s announcement and initial demo release – back when it was still called Project Triangle Strategy – the developers have taken on board a lot of the feedback from gamers over the game’s style and gameplay. One particular improvement, and something that we immediately found to be a little bit awkward in the demo, is that the game no longer has a fixed camera view, so you can now spin the camera around and help clear up the sometimes difficult to interpret situation in battle.
in our preview from the Project Triangle Strategy demo, Dom said:
“Joining a host of marvellous triangular things, Project Triangle Strategy could have a narrative as fluid as a PG Tips tea bag, a cast of characters as sweet as a Toblerone, and gameplay with the snap and crunchy of a Dorito. They do only have one shot at it – really, for the magic to work it needs to be a trilogy – but from every angle, Project Triangle Strategy looks like another glorious RPG from Square Enix. This is definitely one to keep an eye-ess, oh-ess, sea-ee ell-ee-ess on.”
