Trinity Trigger to Release in the West Next Year

Trinity Trigger

Furyu will release its JRPG Trinity Trigger in the West in 2023. The game launches in Japan on September 15, 2022. XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe will take up publishing duties for it in North America and Europe, respectively.

XSEED also included an announcement trailer in its September 1, 2022 press release. Check it out below.

Developed as a throwback to iconic JRPGs of the 1990s and early 2000s, Trinity Trigger takes place on the fantasy continent of Tritania. In the distant past, the gods of Order and Chaos clashed for dominance in an epic struggle that nearly destroyed the mortal realm. Chastened by the calamity their direct combat caused, the gods withdrew from the front lines, leaving their “Arma”, massive weapons, stuck in the ground. Rather than risk destroying everything in their struggle again, the gods resorted to an indirect conflict, selecting “God Warriors” as proxies to represent their side and fight in their name. Cyan Elreius, a man who wants a quiet and normal life, discovers that he’s been chosen to become the Warrior of Chaos. Rather than accede to the cruel destiny God Warriors face, he sets out on a journey with his companions Elise and Zantis to defy the gods and save the world from their conflict.

Trinity Trigger operates as an isometric game with real-time combat. Its systems involve small creatures called “Triggers” that can transform into weapons and change up the characters’ abilities. Designs for various triggers are provided by Atsuko Nishida, Megumi Mizutani, and Tomohiro Kitakaze, who also contributed designs to the Pokémon series. The game also supports three-player co-op, allowing two other players to control Elise and Zantis.

Trinity Trigger arrives on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5 in Japan on September 15, 2022. It releases in North America and Europe in early 2023.
