Mind Candy has just launched its first major product outside its phenomenally popular Moshi Monsters virtual pet entertainment franchise. And the company's first product is a free-to-play epic advanture combat strategy game based on its new IP, World of Warriors.
World of Warriors is markedly different from Moshi Monsters, but it boasts pretty much the same expansive experience afforded by the property for which Mind Candy is best known. The new game is essentially a pick-up-and-play fighting RPG that has players assembling a team of warriors inspired by history's greatest:
Featuring an ever-expanding array of the greatest warriors in history, from Ninjas and Aztecs to Knights and Vikings, World of Warriors takes players on an epic journey across the vast Wildlands. Every warrior comes with their own incredible backstory, special moves and educational facts. Through heart-pounding battle, elemental-based strategy, a rich crafting system and a chance to compete with players across the globe, World of Warriors delivers an unforgettable battle experience in truly stunning environments.

As with Moshi Monsters, which has spawned a number of other titles including Moshi Monsters Village and Moshi Monsters: Moshlings, the World of Warriors game is just the beginning for World of Warriors. Already, a multimedia franchise has been built around World of Warriors, which is set to expand with toys, books, and other products.
