Square Enix says Triangle Strategy's plot came from a desire to create a story for adult audiences
Triangle Strategy is the latest Switch-exclusive RPG from Square Enix, and much like Octopath Traveler before it, this title is a hit as well.
While Triangle Strategy and Octopath Traveler certainly share some similarities, the story between the two titles is quite different. Triangle Strategy is filled with touch decisions, political intrigue, and intense personal relationships. If you were wondering what the impetus for that story was, Square Enix was happy to explain in an interview with Nintendo.
The Switch News channel is currently hosting an interview with Square Enix producers Tomoya Asano and Yasuaki Arai, and in the snippet below, you can see Arai discuss how Triangle Strategy’s story came to be.
When we started the project, our concept was to create a story for adult audiences. We chose the tactics genre and conflict situation to achieve that purpose. We tried to make such a complex subject as easy to understand as possible. When we think about a conflict, there are at least two groups fighting. Why are they fighting? What do they want? That was our starting point when thinking about the story.
