Stylish brawler-strategy hybrid Aztez coming to PS4, Vita [Update: Xbox One, Wii U and PC, too]

Indie studio Team Colorblind revealed that its current project Aztez is headed to the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita with a curious blend of bloody beat-'em-up gameplay and city-building strategy.

Though its flashy monochrome style recalls Ska Studios' The Dishwasher at first glance, Aztez cites inspiration from varied sources. Combat artist and designer Ben Ruiz aims to infuse his upcoming game with "the feel and creativity of Bayonetta, the sensationalism and mobility of Capcom's Alien Vs Predator, and the precision difficulty of classic Devil May Cry."

Aztez isn't just a straightforward brawler, though, as players will also have to manage their empire in Risk-like strategic sequences sprinkled throughout gameplay. A release date has not been announced.

[Update: Team Colorblind confirmed that Aztez is also coming to the Xbox One and Wii U. Ports for Windows, Mac and Linux will be available via Steam.]
