Trinity Trigger

Trinity Trigger

Once upon a time, the Gods of Chaos and Order fought for dominance, spanning the heavens and the continent of Trinitia. After these conflicts almost destroy the mortal world, fearsome weapons known as Arma become embedded within the ground. Soon after this occurrence, the Gods’ direct battle ends, and people instead choose representative factions to fight in as God Warriors.

The protagonist, Cyan, is a Warrior of Chaos. With a seemingly destined grim end, he sets out with two companions, Elise and Zantis, who guide him on a journey to defy the gods and save the world. Players will traverse the towers of Arma, made from the Gods’ fallen weapons. They comprise several dungeons and puzzles, with local cooperative play also possible.

Additionally, many biomes will be explorable, including forests, deserts, and snowfields, with each having numerous secrets to uncover. The on-the-fly swappable weapon types via the Weapon Wheel allow for continual strategy no matter which foe is being faced.

Trinity Trigger will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in North America on April 25, 2023. This release date is almost a month before the EU release date scheduled for May 16, 2023.

Loop8: Summer of Gods

Throughout this game, the protagonist Nini and his classmates try to fend off demonic entities known as Kegai. They have driven mankind to the verge of extinction. Nini, raised on a failed space station called “Hope,” decides to spend his summer in Ashihara, one of humanity’s final sanctuaries. However, he finds himself having to use a gift from the gods, the ability to reset the world. With this skill, the cast repeatedly relives the eighth month to hopefully defeat the Kegai once and for all.

This title takes place around 1983 in the setting of Ashihara. The vast cast can be bonded with, and they all have their own secrets to uncover, with player choice determining their potential antagonism or friendliness.
