Pier Solar HD Kickstarter Smashes Through Wii U Stretch Goal
Posted by Damien McFerran
Nintendo version now assured
You'll have to forgive us if we've been talking a lot about Pier Solar recently, but we're rather taken with WaterMelon's 16-bit RPG.
Launched in 2010 on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, the game received a limited print run which has since become a collector's item. Keen to get the game into the hands of a wider audience, WaterMelon set up a Kickstarter campaign to produce a HD version of the title for a wide range of platforms.
That campaign quickly reached its target goal, by which point the developer added a series of stretch goals - one of which was a version on the Wii U.
Guess what? That goal has also been smashed, meaning that you'll soon be able to enjoy this unique old-school RPG on your shiny new Wii U console. In the meantime, check out our impressions of the Mega Drive version (and its insanely awesome packaging).
