All Triangle Strategy Difficulty Modes & What They Change

Tactical combat RPG Triangle Strategy has four different difficulty modes that allow players to fine-tune the gameplay experience to their liking.

Fans of story and challenge alike will be able to enjoy the recently-released Triangle Strategy thanks to its selection of difficulty settings. Developed by Japanese team Artdink with production led by producer Tomoya Asano (whose previous work includes Octopath Traveler), the title was released on March 4 as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. Since Triangle Strategy’s demo in February, players have anticipated the full game’s arrival, and its difficulty options assure everyone should be able to find a level of difficulty that suits them.

A JRPG with a broad cast of characters and a complex narrative, Triangle Strategy’s tactical combat is reminiscent of games like Fire Emblem – save for things like the musou combat of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes – and The Banner Saga. The story sees protagonists Serenoa and Frederica caught up in a war between major nations in the world of Norzelia; gameplay gives the player control over these characters and more in grid-based strategic combat in which different characters have different sets of abilities and spells.

Combat is broken up by narrative-focused sections that drive the story forward. The player’s choices affect the course of the story and lead to one of multiple endings as well as altering future battles. Together, story and combat meld to create a JRPG where the player’s choices on and off the battlefield have unforeseen repercussions throughout the rest of the story. Players who have already completed Triangle Strategy’s demo can transfer save data to continue the story from where they left off when they begin the full game.

Triangle Strategy Features Four Difficulty Settings

Due to Triangle Strategy’s strong focus on narrative, many players may want to experience the story without worrying about losing in combat; conversely, other players may prioritize the challenge that higher difficulty presents. Fortunately, Triangle Strategy offers four different difficulty settings for players to tune their experience to their preferred level of challenge:

Very Easy is recommended for players who aren’t comfortable with tactical games or who want to enjoy the story with as few obstacles as possible.Easy is recommended for players new to tactical games or who want to focus on the story.Normal is recommended for players who are familiar with tactical games and want to face challenging but fair fights.Hard is recommended for veterans of tactical games who want thrilling, challenging battles.

How long it takes to beat Triangle Strategy’s story will vary from player to player, but those who turn the difficulty down will likely be able to get through the extensive playtime a bit more quickly. Difficulty can also be changed from the settings menu at any time. These difficulty settings affect the game’s AI behaviors – higher difficulties result in enemies that fight smarter.

Fans of JRPGs and tactical strategy games alike will enjoy Triangle Strategy, and the variety presented in these options ensure the game is accessible to a wide audience. Players finding themselves overwhelmed can always lower the game’s difficulty, while those seeking more of a challenge can increase it. This should allow anyone playing the game to enjoy it at their own pace and comfort.
