Triangle Strategy has been quietly doing the rounds here on Nintendo Life, impressing us with its gorgeous graphics and deep tactical combat. And it seems like a lot of people around the world agree with our review that it’s bloody brilliant. You should read it if you’re still thinking of picking it up.
Producer Tomoya Asano has reported that Square Enix’s latest (triangle) strategy RPG has sold 800,000 copies worldwide, and for a genre that (outside of Nintendo’s Fire Emblem) doesn’t seem to be that big anymore like before, that’s pretty impressive. The game just came out two weeks ago.
The announcement came Twitterand the producer also shared this rather lovely drawing by character designer and artist Naoki Ikushima – whose work has been doing the rounds lately too!
Using machine translation courtesy of Google, we can see that Asano is thankful for Triangle Strategy’s really strong sales:
Two weeks have passed since publication.
More than 200,000 in Japan + Asia and soon 800,000 worldwide (shipping + DL)
Thanks m_ _m
The illustration is by Ikushima with gratitude.
Please continue to support us in the future
For comparison, Square Enix’s other HD 2D game, Octopath Traveler, hit 1 million sales in three weeks, so it seems like Triangle Strategy is following a similar road to success as its cousin.
