eShop Title Pier Solar HD Delayed On Wii U, Plus New Details

WaterMelon has confirmed that Wii U eShop title Pier Solar HD has been delayed on the Wii U. The delay is blamed on Microsoft certification as the game failed some internal requirements on certification for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. WaterMelon also announced what’s new for the Director’s Cut, which includes an extended storyline and additional side quests.

“We’re starting the submission process for PSHD. Valve already approved it for release on Steam so that’s done and done. We may contact some of you who subscribed to beta test to test the game on Steam using a beta key. Stay tuned. Microsoft already evaluated Pier Solar as well but we failed some internal requirements on the certification and we’re correcting them for the next submission. This also impacts Wii U and PlayStation(s) submissions since we want to send it as clean as possible so that we don’t get another failed certification. Luckily, the process doesn’t take as long as we thought, so the perspectives to getting a release date gets better. As soon as we’re certified on all platforms we’ll announce the date and put it on the street. ”

Director’s Cut

“It has been quite a complex journey to implement all improvements to Pier Solar from the MD/Genesis version to the HD version, but I’m also happy to declare them complete and ready to roll. So here’s a list of all the things that are new and exclusive to PSHD.”

Extended story and new side quests.

Pier Solar HD added 16 pages of text to the original story. But what does that translate into?

– There are new places to explore, with new bosses and new chests to open.
– Some loose ends got tied. Why is Alina the only elf? Why are our heroes the chosen ones? Why Zelini and Alina don’t get along? Find out all about it on PSHD.
– New ending. In addition to the original Pier Solar ending, a new ending is possible. Maybe a secret ending too? What? Humm. ;-)
– New sidequests. Why was that boss at the watermelon farm so rude to the characters on Pier Solar for MD/Genesis? Because he was grumpy that his sidequest was stripped out the game. But now he is happy, his sidequest is back with a vengea… I mean, great reward at the end. How about another sidequest that could possibly trigger a secret ending? Huh? What? Err… Ha!

Thanks, WiiUMasterRace

      1. But that’s what you’ll get on the PS4 and PS Vita… no games… Wii U actually has games but so far the only must have titles on the Vita is Killzone and LBP… and the only games worth getting a PS4 for is LBP 3 and inFamous: Second Son…. oh wait, you can get LBP 3 on PS3… never mind, both the PS4 and Vita have no games.

        1. “so far the only must have titles on the Vita is Killzone and LBP”


          Cause none of these games were worth playing or will be worth playing when they release eh? Cause the Vita has no games and is getting no games………….?

          I’ll just stop there, for one: I could go on and two: I don’t know why I am even wasting my own time with you close minded individuals, who obviously just love to troll on shit for whatever reason simply because you may not particularly find use in it.

          Same dumb ass shit no matter what system a person owns. The Xbox 360 has no games, the Xbox One has no games,The PS3 has no games, the PS4 has no games, The Wii has no games, the Wii U has no games, the 3DS has no games…

          A continual spiral of unadulterated nonsense.

          1. Might I add, to say any current system has no games is completely ignorant.

            I don’t have a problem if certain games or maybe more games on a particular system don’t happen to appeal to you. Fine, but when you have people saying a system doesn’t “have any games” as if it’s an actual fact, that is where I draw the line.

            You opinions and personal tastes are not facts. I may not find much on the Xbox One that peaks my interest but I would never say something as dumb as it has no games… Almost everyone in the world owns at least one of these systems for a reason, obviously because they are playing games that they enjoy on them. Whether you happen to like them or not, it doesn’t justify anything as fact.

      2. vita? really? I have one and have 3 games and except other games I can also get on ps3, there is close to nothing on it xD

        1. Maybe close to nothing on your Vita.

          I have just as many Vita games as 3DS games, so I honestly feel like you people are either blind or just plain close minded, to the point you literally barely like any games in general.

          Not expecting anyone to like every game that I do but seriously if only three Vita games interest you, out of all the ones available, you are clearly very close minded.

          Whatever, I am not the one missing out on good games, only idiotic close minded fans like you people are.

        1. Not a bad call. I do most of my gaming on my 3DS. I jump on my WiiU for some multi-Monster Hunter, Mass Effect… There are a few fun smaller titles, but I’m really disappointed in the MK8 rooster and the shit-implementation of “Voice Chat.” I almost would rather it not be there than be so shitty.

          How to Survive is fun, ZombiU…I only regret being an early adopter, but I’m glad I own it now… Still, my 3DS is my game system of choice.

  1. Nintendo Knight Equilibrium

    Yes yes no voice chat it doesn’t needed it and a splatoon too pls., but devils third pls put voice chat in it.

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      I don’t have anything against voice chat aslong as you have the option of turning it off and so on which should be obvious…

  2. Okay, now I know why this game is delayed, which I’ve been looking forward to for some time. But what about Arachnid Games’ delay of Ballpoint Universe? It was supposed to release in March, but the developer said they needed to push it back a few weeks. Well, it’s almost July & Ballpoint Universe still hasn’t hit the eShop.

  3. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

    *facepalm* Fuck you very much, Microsoft! Thanks for forcing a delay of the game because of your occasional fuck ups. If you guys aren’t fucking up with an OS for computers, it’s an OS for your video game consoles.
