What is the triangle strategy?
Triangle Strategy is another game that Square Enix calls “HD-2D”. This means that the art style is roughly 16-bit, dating back to the golden age of JRPGs, but the graphics use modern elements such as 3D and tilt and shift effects. It fits together beautifully, as anyone familiar with the Octopath Traveler can attest.
This game is a throwback to the Final Fantasy Tactics style. Thus, it is a turn-based strategy game where you command a team of warriors in a multi-level environment to destroy enemy forces. The position of your characters on the battlefield also affects their effectiveness, and higher powers get increased range. You can also combine elemental reactions, such as using fire to melt ice in the environment and then using lightning in water to deal damage.
