Square Enix have announced strategy RPG Project Triangle Strategy (working title) during today’s Nintendo Direct.
Using a similar 2d sprite in a 3d world graphical style to Octopath Traveller; the game takes place in land of three nations who went to war over salt and iron. While a truce was declared decades ago, intrigue threatens to break out into war again. Project Triangle Strategy (working title) launches in 2022.
The choices you make will decide what your convictions will be; morality, liberty, or utility. This affects the story and who will join you. In battle the position of characters and elevation will affect range and power, and elements react to one-another to create combos.
A demo is available today, and a feedback survey will be produced in the future.
You can find the announcement trailer below, along with the game’s segment during the Nintendo Direct presentation (28:55) revealing more about the game.
You can find the full rundown (via Nintendo) below.
Three nations battle for control of the dwindling resources of salt and iron
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 world view 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.
Control multi-tiered battlefields to strategically secure victory
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!
