FuRyu’s co-op action-packed RPG, Trinity Trigger, has finally received a release date in the west. Trinity Trigger was originally released in Japan back in 2022 and will arrive here on 16th May on a number of formats including the Nintendo Switch. The game features a star-studded group of RPG developers including world building artist Yuki Nobuteru (Trials of Mana), character designer Raita Kazama (Xenoblade), scenario writer Yura Kubota (Octopath Traveler), and composer Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana, Trials of Mana) and is now available to pre-order via the Nintendo eShop. Here’s all the details direct from Marvelous:
“Trinity Trigger is an all-new action role-playing game combining the look and feel of iconic RPGs of the ‘90s with an emphasis on fast-paced, customizable combat. Players take control of three young heroes as they attempt to defy fate and save the continent of Trinitia. Accompanying them are the Triggers, strange creatures with the unique ability to transform into eight types of weapons that players must master if they hope to be successful on their quest. Whether playing alone or with up to two friends via local co-op, explore diverse biomes and dungeons, strategize to exploit enemy weaknesses, and change your destiny!”
- Master the Weapons of the Gods— Solve puzzles and defeat enemies alone or with friends in local co-op as players traverse the dungeons of each Arma, towers made from the fallen weapons of the gods.
- Seek Out Trinitia’s Mysteries— Reveal hidden passages by exploring every last bit of Trinitia’s diverse biomes and chat with townsfolk for clues to uncover the heavily guarded secrets held in these forests, deserts, snowfields, and more.
- Change the Tide of Battle— Make expert use of the Weapon Wheel in battle to change between eight weapon types on the fly – every enemy has a weakness and finding and exploiting it is the key to victory.
- A Generational Role-Playing Epic— Trinity Trigger was inspired by the iconic RPGs of yesteryear, but its accessible and rewarding gameplay incorporates modern flourishes to make it an exciting new adventure.
The official release date is May 16th for $49.99, definitely keeping an eye on this title. I noticed the article says “it’s an ARPG combining the look and feel of 90’s RPG’s with an emphasis on fast past customizable combat” Sounds like my kinda game.
