It turns out that strategy games are still cool, as Triangle Strategy has sold over 1 million copies on both the Nintendo Switch and PC through physical and digital sales. Considering that it's only been out for less than a year, that's not too shabby, especially when we take into account that this is a turn-based tactics title named Triangle Strategy, which is honestly one of the worst video game names I've ever heard. Basically, it's been a hard road from the start, but thankfully, the terrible name didn't doom the game.
Instead, it's done very well for itself, following other strategy hits this year like Wartales, which is another strategic RPG that gives players a lot of choices over the course of its story. There's never been a better time to be an SRPG fan, so a relatively high-profile game like Triangle Strategy doing well is further proof that the genre is booming right now.
As for the game itself, Triangle Strategy is set in Norzelia, where three major powers are recovering from a recent war. Eventually, a balance of power is achieved between the three empires of Hyzante, Glenbrook, and Aesfrost, but obviously, that peace is shaky. As Serenoa Wolffort, you'll be able to choose from three different philosophies: utility, morality, or liberty, which will shape the story and change how it plays out.
You can also select from a variety of characters to form your own team that can utilize their own special attacks and skills. While using them, the characters will consume a rechargeable pool of Tactical Points. As you progress through the game, you'll be able to level up your characters and increase their attributes to unlock new moves. Attributes and character classes can also be upgraded.
If you're interested in playing Triangle Strategy, you can currently buy it on Steam for 40% off. It'll only remain on sale for another day, so make sure to act quickly if you want to save Norzelia.
