Toylogic, based in Toshima ward of Tokyo, Japan, has released the Early Access version of Happy Wars for Windows on Steam worldwide on Thursday May 29, 2014.
Happy Wars is a free-to-play, large-scale, online multiplayer action game matching up as many as 30 players per match.
Engage in heated seizes, cast spells in big magical battles and go crazy in over-the-top melees in a fantasy-themed world with players all around the world.
Players can customize their player character with equipment such as weapons, armor and other accessories obtained through battles, or by using Happy Stars or Happy Cards and run about the battlefields with the personalized player character.
Equipment have a growth element and can be powered up through Item Level-Up and Item Modification systems, giving players the ability to create their own unique and ultimate item.
