Triangle Strategy rated Teen Rating by ESRB

Triangle Strategy, Square Enix’s anticipated forthcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive strategy game, has been assigned a Teen Rating by the ESRB. The game is set to be launched globally for the Nintendo Switch family of consoles on March 4th, so we won’t have to wait long to get our hands on it. 

ESRB description

This is a role-playing adventure game in which players follow the story of a nobleman whose kingdom is on the brink of war. As players progress through the narrative, they can interact with characters to gain allies, make dialogue choices, and engage in tactical turn-based combat. Presented from a 3/4-overhead perspective, players position characters on a grid-based area, using weapon strikes and magic to defeat enemy forces.

Battles are accompanied by cries of pain, impact sounds, and screen-shaking effects. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence and blood: a character with a pool of blood underneath his body; a character killed by an arrow; a character executed off-screen. Some female characters are designed in outfits with moderate amounts of cleavage; the dialogue contains some suggestive innuendo (e.g., “You really must use your head more often. The one atop of your shoulders, that is”; “You seem like an honest man. I will thoroughly enjoy laying you down….hahaha.”).

The game contains some references to wine, ale, and getting “tipsy” in dialogue; a drunk character is depicted slurring his speech, hiccupping, then passing out. The word “sh*te” is heard in the game.

About Triangle Strategy

Three countries compete for control of the depleting salt and iron resources.

Command a band of warriors as Serenoa, heir of House Wolffort, in a complicated narrative where your choices will make or break the outcome. Key decisions you make will strengthen one of three beliefs – Utility, Morality, and Liberty – that together comprise Serenoa’s world view and determine how the tale unfolds. When confronted with genuinely life-or-death choices, numerous characters will weigh in by voting on the Scales of Conviction. In these times, your alliances and judgments may affect the destiny of whole countries as well as the continent of Norzelia itself.
