The game features the greatest warriors in history, from Ninjas and Aztecs to Knights and Vikings.

World of Warriors magazine is aimed at 6-10 year old boys and provides a deep connection with the historical characters and their worlds, through funny and engaging editorial and is packed with foul facts, scary stats and gruesome gags. The first issue comes with an epic bow and arrow set, official Warriors trading cards PLUS it’s packed with puzzles, posters and an exclusive six-page comic.

Siobhan Galvin, Publishing Director, said, “We are very excited to be working with Mind Candy on the launch of World of Warriors magazine.
