Pier Solar coming to Wii U

The eShop's always been a place for the stranger end of games publishing to thrive - and it doesn't come stranger than WaterMelon Corp and Pier Solar and the Great Architects. The old-school JRPG was originally released on Mega Drive - but in 2010. The very definition of a passion project, the retro adventure's now on its way to Wii U and, according to an interview with Nintendo Enthusiast, it'll be arriving in April.

The porting process has added 10 hours of gameplay, HD backdrops (although you can change to the original 16-bit style at any time) and an updated soundtrack.

WaterMelon President, Tulio Gonçalves added that the Wii U version has had its own additions too, and that that work could lead to a 3DS version of the game in future too: "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."

This isn't the last of WaterMelon's interest in making brand new retro games, either - and it sees Nintendo will be getting more love from the developer: "We do have two brand-new games coming up soon born from the Magical Game Factory [WaterMelon's crowd-sourced game studio]: Project Y for Sega Genesis and Project N for SNES."
