Team Colorblind indicated last year that Aztez would probably release on Switch instead of Wii U. That has been made official, with the developer confirming plans for Nintendo’s current system officially. Console versions are in the works, including Switch.

Aztez is a beat ’em up set in the world of the Aztec Empire. Find some additional information and a trailer below.

Aztez will be on a Nintendo console – be it Switch or Wii U. As we heard yesterday, the former is looking more likely at this point. While we wait for the Nintendo release, watch some footage below.

In our indie feature a few months ago, we asked Team Colorblind if Aztez would still be made for Wii U. We were told that releasing on the older system isn’t entirely off the table “if it seems like there’s still a market for it, and it isn’t a technical nightmare”.

Team Colorblind offered an update about the situation in a new blog post as well. Team Colorblind noted that the company is primarily authorized for Wii U currently, “but we’re going to try and pivot that into a Switch release instead.” Bringing Aztez to Switch rather than Wii U may make more sense at this point.


Team Colorblind’s debut title Aztez is coming to Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux, the studio announced today.

Aztez is a turn-based strategy title that has players expanding and maintaining the Aztec empire while also managing violent outbreaks in real-time beat ’em up sequences. Each game is said to be unique. According to Team Colorblind, “different events will occur, different challenges will emerge, and different spoils will be taken each time you play.”

You can find a trailer for Aztez above. It’ll be released later this year.
