Square Enix announces a new tactical RPG “Project Triangle Strategy” during today’s Nintendo Direct 2021.2.18. The game will launch worldwide in 2022 and a demo is now available via the Nintendo eShop.
“Project Triangle Strategy” is the latest entry of Square Enix’s “HD-2D” pixel art series, following the success of “Octopath Traveler”. The story is set In the land of Norzelia, where the “Salt Iron War” intensifies the conflicts of the three nations; Kingdom of Glenbrook, the Principality of Esfrost, and the Principality of St. Highsand, fighting for the limited resources.
Command a group of warriors as Serenoa, heir to the Kingdom of Glenbrook in a tangled plot where your decisions make all the difference. Key choices you make will bolster one of three convictions—Utility, Morality, Liberty—which together make up Serenoa’s worldview and influence how the story will unfold. When faced with truly momentous decisions, multiple characters will weigh in by casting their votes on the Scales of Conviction. In these moments, the allies and decisions you make can determine the fate of whole nations and the continent of Norzelia itself.
Finding the best location in turn-based battles can tip the tide of combat in your favor. Position units on higher ground to take control of the battlefield and gain the advantage with increased range. You can also flank enemies on both sides, then strike from behind for a powerful follow-up attack.
Elemental chain reactions are also an important part of combat. For example, use fire to melt icy terrain, then use lightning to electrocute it. Push the enemy into the electrified water to see sparks fly!
