FuRyu's action RPG Trinity Trigger is coming out in Japan in just a few weeks, but today, XSEED Games has announced that it will be bringing the game over to western shores "early" next year!

With staff including worldbuilding artist Yuki Nobuteru (Secret of Mana), character designs by Raita Kazama (Xenoblade Chronicles), a story written by writer Yura Kubota (Octopath Traveler), and music from renowned RPG composer Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana), Trinity Trigger aims to capture the feel of '90s action RPG nostalgia. You'll be able to play local co-op with two other friends as you "hack and slash your way to the Gods".

XSEED shared some features for the game, which releases on Switch in "Early 2023":


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.

We've had our eyes on this ever since the game's key art dropped, and it indeed looks like a lovely throwback to sitting in front of our Super Nintendos while playing Secret of Mana. There's a plethora of big names working on the title with pretty respectable resumes, and you can find out more about them in our previous story:

When we get a proper release date nailed down for Trinity Trigger, we'll let you know!
