XBLA Exclusive Happy Wars Gets First Trailer

The trailer you see above is for, if the headline wasn’t enough, the Xbox LIVE Arcade exclusive Happy Wars. It was originally shown off to convention goers that visited Microsoft’s booth during the Tokyo Game Show a few months ago. Now the clip has been given a place on YouTube and a chance to shine for the world at large.

Happy Wars is a game split into multiplayer madness and a single player campaign. Here’s a rundown of what players can expect as this produce nears its unannounced release date:

Happy Wars is a multi-player action game that pits different comic-style characters against each other in over-the-top combat arenas. Taking place in a variety of fantasy battlefields including grasslands, a dark world, and the ocean floor, players can control any of 3 types of characters: warrior, mage, and cleric. Cooperate with friends to enjoy action on a grand scale, working together to overcome enemies, casting magic spells, and attacking castles. For off-line fun, the player can take on missions in the solo campaign mode.

The campaign mentioned above is set to have several missions for solo gamers to play through; however, according to the Toylogic’s (the studio behind the product) news release for the trailer, that’s not where the “real fun” is to be had.

“The debut trailer shows the real fun experience of ‘Happy Wars’, including 15 vs. 15 online play and the spectacular actions of the 3 classes – the warrior, the mage and the cleric, all in HD quality.”

The look of the style within the trailer is actually rather striking. PlayStation 3 and PSP owners may actually find some shared visual qualities with one of their best gaming options, Fat Princess.

As it’s being published by Microsoft Studios, Happy Wars will likely only see life on the Xbox 360‘s LIVE Arcade platform. According to Toylogic, the game will release sometime in 2012.
