The latest HD-2D RPG from Square Enix seems to be doing very well, especially considering it’s a strategy title. Triangle Strategy, the spiritual successor to Octopath Traveler, has already sold 800,000 copies since its release two weeks ago. The game changed from the turn-based battling of its predecessor to a tactical combat system, similar to Fire Emblem.
As detailed in a tweet from the Japanese language account for the game, Triangle Strategy sales are clearly strong, showing that the title hasn’t massively suffered against the stiff competition of Elden Ring. Sure, it’s already sold twelve million copies, but Triangle Strategy wasn’t going to do that anytime soon, even if it was the only video game coming out.
For comparison, Octopath Traveler sold one million copies within its first month, so it looks like Triangle Strategy sales are on track to match that. Just seeing retro-style JRPGs selling so well warms my heart, and I hope it encourages other developers to keep it up. For now, Square is clearly leading the charge.
