Triangle Strategy proves to be a success on a global scale

Triangle Strategy is a game with a peculiar name, and little is known about it other than a couple of demos. It’s not attached to any particular gaming universe, despite having an art style similar to Octopath Traveler and being a Team Asano project.

発売から2週間が経ちました。日本+アジア地域で20万以上、全世界ではもうすぐ80万という状況です(出荷+DL)ありがとうございますm_ _mイラストは生島より感謝を込めまして。どうぞみなさま今後とも応援下さいませ浅野Pまだの方、#次はノゼリアの王を目指してみませんか? https://t.co/yiyoX043Ib

The tweet, translated via Google, says the following, courtesy of Asano P and his team:

“Two weeks have passed since its release. More than 200,000 in Japan + Asia and 800,000 in the world soon (shipping + DL). Thank you. This illustration is from Ikushima with gratitude. Please continue to support us in the future. - Asano P”

Team Asano is also known for Octopath Traveler and Bravely Default II, both of which were incredibly successful in their own right. For context, it took six months for Bravely Default to hit the 950,000 units sold before the PC launch of the game.

Octopath Traveler sold 1M units in the first month it was available, so it puts the game in good company. It’s occasionally hard to get gamers to take a gamble on a new IP, but Triangle Strategy has a familiar look and design to hook players.

It also has multiple endings and plenty of characters to unlock and ways to play, which is another solid way to keep players interested.

Combining that with solid gameplay and an incredible story, teasing fans with a pair of demos to teach them how to play and offering breadcrumbs of the story. The tweet that announced the sales also featured a unique piece of art from Naoki Ikushima (designer, Triangle Strategy).

Such success isn’t often afforded to turn-based strategy games not named “Fire Emblem,” so it is pretty clear that the game has been a success. The sky is the limit for the game, and these numbers could grow further if a PC version gets revealed.
