Announced at this week’s Nintendo Direct, Project Triangle Strategy is a brand new SRPG from Square Enix. It’s also the company’s new 2D-HD title which employs beautiful pixel art sprites and an art style similar to Octopath Traveler. While the game’s isn’t set to be released till 2022, here are a few things you should know about the game.
The Scales of Conviction
Probably the biggest and most interesting mechanic we got to see during the presentation, The Scales of Conviction are central to pretty much everything you do in Project Triangle Strategy. In between your major battles, your characters will gather together as a council and decide on how best to proceed.
For instance, in the debut demo, we were given the choice of either surrendering Prince Roland to the enemy or fighting back. The council then has to come to a decision together and decide how they want to respond.
While most characters may lean towards one particular side, you can potentially persuade them to see things your way if you have enough information.
The Scales focus on three values: morals, liberty, and utility. This can factor into your play style and how you want to shape your character, and will likely lead you down some interesting paths in Project Triangle Strategy.
