Pier Solar HD release date set for PS4, PS3, PC and Ouya

Xbox One, Wii U and Dreamcast versions to follow.

Pier Solar and the Great Architects, the HD remake of the 2010's epic Sega Mega Drive RPG, is due on 30th September for PS4, PS3, Ouya, and PC via Steam.

Developer WaterMelon noted that release dates for its Xbox One, Wii U and Dreamcast (yes, Dreamcast!) versions will be announced next month as it's currently pending certification from Microsoft and Nintendo.

This HD revision of Pier Solar raised a respectable $231K on Kickstarter in December 2012. The developer was originally only asking for $139K, but the project was so successful that it hit every one of its stretch goals, hence why it's coming to so many platforms in the very near future.

Pier Solar and the Great Architects is allegedly colossal in scale with over 50 hours of gameplay, 300 locations and 800 NPCs. WaterMelon has proclaimed it "the biggest 16-bit RPG ever," an honour it achieved by being developed in the modern era on a 64MB cartridge rather than the 12MB standard of the Sega Mega Drive's heyday.
