Square Enix Co., Ltd. (“Square Enix”) is pleased to receive requests from everyone interested in sharing videos and images of our games online, but we ask that you be mindful of a few things, as set out in these guidelines (the “Guidelines”).

Square Enix permits you to post online and otherwise use certain content from TRIANGLE STRATEGY (the “Game”) subject to these Guidelines. These Guidelines apply only outside of Japan; if you are located in Japan or have obtained a Japanese version of the Game, please check the different guidelines that apply to you.

[Game Materials]

The “Materials” consist of the following content from the Game (and any demo of the Game, a “Demo”):

  • Fan kits for the Game;
  • Gameplay footage, still images, characters, and music from the Game or Demo;
  • Text and information from the Game or Demo; and
  • Text, information, images, and video footage published on the Game’s official website and the Square Enix-operated website, listed below:

[Permitted Uses]

You may post the Materials online for the following permitted personal uses (the "Permitted Uses”) only:

  • Upload or stream gameplay video to video sharing sites such as YouTube, Niconico Douga, etc. (however, these are limited to sites that are already under a music usage agreement/contract with the Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (“JASRAC”))
  • Linking the above video/stream URL and/or thumbnails to microblogging platforms, etc., including but not limited to personal blogs, Twitter, etc.

*Any derivative uses of video content outside of the above is prohibited.

[Usage Conditions]

  • Do not use the materials for commercial purposes.
    However, you may use official monetization functions available through video sharing sites such as YouTube, Niconico Douga, and other similar services that have an agreement in place with JASRAC. If the video sharing site sends you an inquiry regarding the copyright of a monetized video, please direct them to this guideline.
  • Display the below copyright on posted or shared content.
  • In order to avoid spoiling players’ enjoyment of the game, you must mark all content that includes details of major plot developments with a clear spoiler warning.
  • Do not modify the gameplay element of your video content.
  • Posting only movie scenes, cutscenes, and similar materials as standalone content, and/or creating a playlist with the sole intention of providing the game’s movie scenes and cutscenes for viewing, is not permitted.
  • Posting audio tracks and/or music data as standalone content, and/or posting video content with the sole intention of providing access to the Game’s music, is not permitted.
  • Do not livestream, post videos, or post anything from areas of the Game where it is designated that recording is not permitted.
  • Do not modify the Materials.
    • However, you may create content that combines the Materials with an overlay of your own voice and/or a video of yourself commentating on the Game.
  • Do not reproduce shared content other than as expressly contemplated by these Guidelines. For example, you cannot collect and distribute Materials via other media —e.g., in book form— even if you do not stand to gain financially from doing so.
  • Do not use the Materials to promote anything, including other products or services.
  • You must comply with the applicable platform’s terms of use.

  • Please be careful with revealing any Game account ID when creating content.
  • You are responsible for following these Guidelines when livestreaming and posting content that incorporates the Materials.
  • If you fail to follow these Guidelines when using the Materials, you may be temporarily or permanently suspended from using the Game (as determined by Square Enix in its sole discretion).
  • You must immediately comply with any request from Square Enix to remove any shared gameplay video or stream.
  • Do not contest/challenge the Company’s decision to delete gameplay video(s) which we deemed inappropriate.
  • Gameplay videos and streaming should be done at your own responsibility.
  • Square Enix makes no guarantees concerning the Materials, including that the Materials will not infringe third party rights. Square Enix will not compensate you or any third party for any damages or injuries that arise as a result of use of the materials.
