Team Colorblind has released a trailer for their upcoming game Aztez, which they plan on releasing on Wii U. It’s a hybrid of strategy and beat ’em up in which the player assumes the role of an Aztec warrior in order to dominate the battlefield in strategy mode, while winning every fight in the fighting mode. Billed as a mixture between conquest and brutality, the game sports a unique color palette and art style. Other features include:

  • 4+ complete weapon sets: the spear, the club, the ritual knife, the legendary obsidian sword, and more.
  • Finely tuned array of enemies based on the Aztec archetypes: the Eagle warriors, the Jaguar warriors, the Noble warriors, the combat Priests, and more.
  • Customizable avatar; beat the gear off of your enemies and wear it!
  • 30+ combat environments based on real Aztec cities.

On top of the strategy and beat ’em up mashup is a procedurally generated game at heart, so each game is different. Different events can happen that affect your army and strategy, as well as different challenges and different spoils of war once the battle is won. Check out the trailer above for more information on the game and expect to see more once the team is back from GDC this week.

    I love indie games. Keep em coming. Wii U, the home of indie games and the best exclusives!

    • matthew garcia

      Rime is a indie game on ps4 only and looks way better than this

      • David Trail

        Shovel Knight looks better than Rime IMO

    • matthew garcia

      Android and apple actually have good games also. I been playing all the remakes of final Fantasy on them

  • Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernánde

    Tons of indie games are coming to the wii u, i will have to quit my job 🙂

    • David Trail

      Thank God they are affordable unlike some certain full titles eg MGS Ground Zeroes cough cough!

    • Pablo Lavín

      Most of new indies look better for gamers than the nowadays third party AAAs

  • Ryan F

    Looks pretty sweet

  • ActivesiN

    that looks pretty fun

  • David Trail

    Ha ha actually watched the trailer. It looks like Sega’s Mad World on the orginal Wii… Nice!

  • Ducked

    Another strategy, interesting.

  • classicgamer20

    Cool it looks a lot like mad world which was awesome.

    • David Trail

      Sega should make a sequel for Wii U.

      • Pablo Lavín

        Actually Platinum Games

        • David Trail

          Forgot lol

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Anarchy Reigns was the follow up to Mad World.

          • Jon Jacob Black

            Actually it isnt an official sequel
            Just a spiritual successor

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I never said it was an official sequel. Follow up has more than one meeting. Yes, it is indeed a spiritual successor. Both games sold poorly, so not sure if a sequel will happen anytime soon.

    • PatcherStation

      Mad World was a massive flop for SEGA. Never will there be a sequel.

  • uPadWatcher

    Looks like an Aztec take on PlatinumGames’ Mad World… Team Colorblind, TAKE MY DINERO!!!!!!!

  • hhfhfhf

    awesome, tjis is wicked…..

  • Michael Collins

    I am so glad that I paid 300 dollars for an indie game machine! Well, I guess it will be 300 dollars for an indie game machine and one Zelda game. I was never good a math, and it shows. Now hows about we get some of the good triple A indie titles on this thing? You know like Outlast, Gone Home, etc.

    • val berger

      Totally, dude. I’m not sure why all folks are so crazy about the WiiUs Indie lineup as there isn’t anything comparable to stuff you named. I wish I had played Gone Home on the WiiU, would have been more fun than on my Mac. And I haven’t seen a single Indie announcement that really caught my interest. Nothing like Fez, nothing like Hotline Miami. Just nothing. But it’s not like WiiUs Indie games are that bad, they are just nothing more than ‘nice’. Nothing I really wanna spend time & money on.

      • David Trail

        They are really good actually. Runner 2 is really cheap and has more content than MGS Ground Zeroes for £30

        • Michael Collins

          I am not trying to say that all Nintendo’s indie titles are trash. However, if they are going to land the title of best indie game console, then they need to wrangle in the indies that people are talking about. I mean Rust or Day Z would be a blast on the Wii U. I think control wise it would be the best console suited to handle these games. The list could go on and on with titles that would be great for the Wii U. In conclusion, it feels like Nintendo is going to hit the same wall as the triple A 3rd party games.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That’s the norm for Nintendo consoles.

          • David Trail

            People can’t be talking about them much. Haven’t heard of them.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            They’re indie games on PC. If you played on that platform, you should have some knowledge of them. They’re quite popular.

          • David Trail

            Not popular enough. I’ll check them out ; )

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Considering they are selling high on Steam, they are certainly popular enough. Perhaps you don’t play enough on PC. Yes, do check them out. ;P

          • Michael Collins

            They are very popular actually. They both were number one downloaded game on Steam for several weeks. However, if you solely play on the Wii U, then you would probably not know of these two games. My point was that we need to get some of these popular indie titles on the Wii U. If Nintendo could land one of these games, I think it would do quite well on the system.

            In all honesty, Nintendo needs to start pushing some cash towards Mojang (Sp), and land Mine craft. Yes, I know you can get it on every system, phone and pc. However, it can’t help Nintendo to be the only system that doesn’t have it.

    meeeeeh another game which just triggers my cry for Viewtiful Joe on VC. I know, I know, I can keep crying, but I though I’d be with a cry. And another one. Oh man it’d be so nice.

    • TaintedXGamer

      Inb4: Viewtiful Joe 4: Way too Viewtiful! only on Wii U.

      • Where can I throw my money at to make this happen? Where, where WHEEEERREEEEE!!!!

  • hhfhfhf

    wii u kicks ass….

  • Iflywright

    I’m a sucker of that look/style of art in games. It’s like watching someone’s paper drawing come to life.

  • steveb944

    This gave me bad me memories of my still unbeaten copy of Shinobi 3DS

  • Ismael Ototo

    Finally they take advantage of such a rich culture like the Aztec to make an amazing, violent game just the way it was intented to be made.

  • RecheDiazrivarola

    looks really good.

  • gamingpalooza

    how about give us… madworld…

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    this looks so awesome.

  • TaintedXGamer

  • T-X
