First Genesis/Mega Drive game this millennium could also land on the Vita.
Keen Kickstarter followers may already have known about the existence of Pier Solar but for those that don’t I’ll fill you in.
Having been in development for over ten years, the game is stylised as the first new title for the Mega Drive/Genesis this century and was released in 2010. It is a story-based RPG about the journey of three young heroes from the town of Reja. Young and curious, they want to go on a herb-seeking quest to help cure the illness of Hoston’s father. Little do they know… it will be the beginning of their lifetime journey where they will learn the true meaning of friendship and the thrill of adventure.
WaterMelon Games are currently working on the title for more recent platforms including the PS3 and PS4 and thanks to Pata from our forum we were alerted to the what appears to be the game running on the Vita on WaterMelon’s Facebook page. Whilst the image actually pertains to Pier Solar running on remote play, WaterMelon did confirm in the comments that a Vita version is possible.
We obviously didn’t have enough time to build a Vita version, which is not as straight forward as the TV consoles. It’s in our roadmap and we’re already licensed for Vita development. It’ll be the next thing to do after the main release.
We certainly hope so, as it looks very interesting indeed. Although it does have to be said that releasing it on long surpassed SEGA systems is a very cool touch. Would you be interested if it came to the Vita?
