XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe have confirmed a release date for Trinity Trigger, which will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
From developer FuRyu Corporation, this all-new action role-playing game comes from a “star-studded” team that includes worldbuilding 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).
Aiming to combine “the look and feel of iconic RPGs of the ‘90s with an emphasis on fast-paced, customisable combat,” you control three young heroes as they attempt to defy fate and save the continent of Trinitia. Triggers accompany them, strange creatures that can transform into eight types of weapons that you must master if you hope to be successful on your quest.
You can choose to play solo or with up to two friends in local co-operative multiplayer, working together to explore diverse biomes and dungeons, strategise to exploit enemy weaknesses and ultimately change your destiny.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
Master the Weapons of the God: 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.
Trinity Trigger will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 16th May 2023.
