Triangle Strategy has sold 800k copies globally in its first two weeks.
The Switch strategy RPG sold over 200k in Japan and Asia.
The news was shared on Twitter in a message from producer Tomoya Asano, along with artwork from character designer and artist Naoki Ikushima.
For comparison, Octopath Traveller sold 1m copies in its first three weeks, while Bravely Default 2 sold 950k in around 7-8 months.
The numbers are impressive for such a niche genre. Perhaps the success of Fire Emblem: Three Houses (around 3m copies sold in its first year) has ignited interest in the genre.
Malindy described the game as an "intricate, if slow-burn tale of war and political intrigue" in the Triangle Strategy Eurogamer review.
