The recently released Triangle Strategy deserves a spot on your must-play list if you are into turn-based tactical role-playing games.
As soon as you launch the game, you are welcomed to the unique “HD-2D” art style that was introduced by the same producer as the award-winning Octopath Traveller game. This art style blends retro-style characters and textures with high-definition background and effects. Perfect for those that grew up in the era of pixel gaming, but with a modern twist.
The Final Fantasy Tactics series inspire the combat play style. Players take turns moving their party members in an isometric grid to defeat their foes by taking advantage of their position, special attacks and skills, and other resources. It’s like a chess game, but with many different elements to consider, making no two battles the same.
Triangle Strategy not only has a big focus on the gameplay and combat, but it is also very story-rich. The combat is challenging and fun to keep us in the game. Some may be put off by the length of cut-scenes and optional conversations, but the voice acting keeps players engaged in the story.
Along the way, players are presented with various choices throughout the main story. All these choices have consequences the player needs to live with and will affect the game’s ending. So multiple play-throughs are inevitable.
Don’t let this game slip under your radar, especially if you’re a fan of the Final Fantasy Tactics or Fire Emblem series. There is also a Prologue demo on the Nintendo Switch that you can download for free to try this game out!
