Pier Solar HD was originally scheduled to hit the Wii U last December, but was then pushed to a later release date in 2014. Now, indie developer WaterMelon has pinned down an April release date for the Sega Genesis RPG HD remake.
The JRPG-inspired title has over 50 hours of gameplay, with around 300 locations ready to explore and focuses on the adventures of three best friends. Pier Solar HD is set to come to a variety of other platforms, including PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux, Android and Dreamcast, but WaterMelon CEO Tulio Goncalves says he’d like to extend the list by adding the Nintendo 3DS. Goncalves said the following in support of Nintendo’s consoles:
“On Wii U, we’re definitely putting the second screen to good use, a feature that will be exclusive of that platform — well, maybe not for long if we end up making it to the 3DS, but that’s for later. We planned a few functions for the second screen that will add to the gameplay; I’m sure the Wii U players will enjoy them. We’re hoping to release the game in April.”
