According to Square Enix, its tactical-RPG Triangle Strategy has sold 1 million copies since its release back in March for the Nintendo Switch and on PC in October. That's including both physical releases and digital downloads across Steam and the Nintendo eShop. 

When Triangle Strategy originally released on the Switch, it sold 800,000 copies within a few weeks, with a quarter of those sales coming from Japan and Asia. Developed by Artdink, the game has been billed as a '2D-HD' title and received solid reviews overall. 

The '2D-HD' trend of Square Enix games began in earnest with 2018's Octopath Traveler, and also includes its sequel in 2023 and the Live-A-Live remake from this past July. 

Between the original Octopath's 2.5 million copies sold (as of 2021), and Triangle's recent success, there's clearly a strong case for the makings of a reliable sub-franchise that Square can take advantage of. 

To commemorate the milestone, and to help the game's sales increase, Square Enix has put Triangle Strategy on sale on Steam and the eShop until December 22.

This marks Square Enix's second sales celebration as 2022 closes down. Earlier in the month, it proudly reported that sales of its Nier franchise reached 8.5 million copies, with the bulk of those sales courtesy of PlatinumGames' 2017 hit, Nier Automata.
