Pier Solar HD Delayed For Wii U, PS4 Due To Microsoft Certification Gamer

2 minutes read

One of the most unique and original role-playing games due out for release on multiple platforms and PC has hit a slight delay… well, it’s more like a major delay, but only because of Microsoft.

As for Pier Solar… the game itself is a real gem, and I mean that in every way that measures up to being a compliment as possible. In fact, I first came across the game due to a Gamezone article praising the living digits out of the game for being such an amazing, nostalgic throwback to a bygone era.

Developer WaterMelon Co., recently went to Kickstarter in order to fund a full, HD makeover for the game that would then be released on the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U. They managed to accrue $231,000 even though the goal was only $139,000.

Once the team gets the certification ironed out at the behest of Microsoft, we can expect to see this undeniably awesome classic-in-the-making mosey its way onto a home console or desktop PC near you.

You can check out the trailer for the game below or pay a kind visit to the official website to learn more.
