Interview – Water Melon Talks Pier Solar HD

Nintendo may not shout about their progress with supporting indie developers as much as other platform holders, but there’s no doubt about the progress they have made in this field. The sheer number and variety of games coming to the eShop over the coming year is nothing but gargantuan and enough to make wallets tremble.

One of the biggest titles arriving in the coming months is Pier Solar HD, a HD remake of a classically inspired JRPG originally released in 2010. It is a title not only anticipated by gamers around the world, but by Nintendo themselves who have been one of the title’s most ardent supporters.

Nintendo Enthusiast, being the indie-loving place that we are, decided to talk with WaterMelon’s President Tulio Goncalves to find out more. (Pier Solar HD, Wii U)

This one is on my watch list, for sure.

Heck, at this point, I think I'd rather rely on indies over AAA third parties who would likely give us a lack-luster port over an original game at this point.
Even if they tried to do something like The Witcher 3[for example] on the Wii U, I doubt it would get the same level of support or care as indies have been giving their games on the system as of late.

There's a few exceptions of course, but overall, indies have become a really reliable source of excellent titles for Wii U owners who are looking for great games to anticipate and purchase soon.
