Pier Solar HD – a Kickstarted project to bring 16-bit RPG homage Pier Solar and the Great Architects to platforms in HD – is targeting a second-quarter release this year on numerous systems including Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The game originally released for the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive in 2010 (that's right), and developer WaterMelon is taking beta applications for the game – which is now expected some time in the second quarter of this year.
