Wasteland Kings, the next game from Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer, is coming to PS4 and Vita next year, Sony's Shahid Ahmad announced during the company's Gamescom press event today.

Wasteland Kings is an action roguelike that tells the sordid stories of mutants fighting to control the Wasteland throne, inspired by 60s to 80s sci-fi novels. Its characters gather radioactive waste to evolve (or devolve, depending on your perspective) and gain new abilities, and it allows players to explore unique approaches to numerous hostile situations. Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail told Joystiq that Wasteland Kings combines aspects from all of its major games: Luftrausers, Super Crate Box and Ridiculous Fishing.

"Wasteland Kings feels like the way I think about Vlambeer," Ismail said. "A happy place where weird shit happens all the time."

Vlambeer will launch Wasteland Kings on Steam Early Access after Gamescom, complete with a livestream of the game's development.
