It sounds a bit odd to say that Pier Solar and the Great Architects (Pier Solar HD) is the high-definition port of a Sega Genesis game released in 2010.
Everybody should buy this game. We need to support more retro RPG projects like this.
we definitely need to support more JRPG's on PC. i can't imagine how happy i'd be to have Atlus, Level-5, and even some Squenix titles on steam atleast Squenix has taken some steps towards re-releases as of late... not that i'd ever buy FF XIII on steam since i didn't really care for it but nvm... this game however looks like interesting oldschool JRPG which i'm down for.
I'm done with Shadow of Mordor, time to start this one! Looks gorgeous and, ironically for a turn based game, refreshing compared to all the action RPGs around.
That's a funny game shift.
I am in the same boat as you. I am about 20 hours into Shadow of Mordor and once I finish it I to will be jumping into Pier Solar .
Just started Pier Solar HD and noticed the many available languages you can choose, even my native one, portuguese. Pretty cool, didn't expect that. The song from the main menu is very nice.
Give it a couple of hours, you'll be hooked! I was shocked at how a game of this style could keep me hooked the way it has. It feels like playing Lunar game for the first time!
Cool just checked PSN and its on there and only $15!I have been wanting to play this game for years!
This game cannot arrive to soon on the EU PSN. I want it now!!!
This game have Lunar Silver Star vibe on it and i'm interested to give it a try. Anyway, i just replaying some classic JRPG such as Breath of Fire IV and Legend of Mana on Vita and boy oh boy they're still awesome. I hope some big developers like SE, capcom, or konami doesn't afraid to go back to 2D graphic again for they JRPG, but of course with HD sprite. I mean, developers like Vanillaware, NIS, or ArcSys still using 2D graphic for their games and it looks good.
Did you play Radiant Historia on the DS?If not you should check it out as it is the best of the newer 2d rpg's imo.Youtube should have some videos showing off it's greatness!I'm going to check out the games you listed which I have heard of but have yet to try.
We need more rpgs like this from indies, also less 8/16-bit more hd sprites like rainbowmoon.
I have 10 hours sunk into Pier Solar...I feel like I'm in middle school again :)
Does it have trophies ?
Yes, it does. Platinum as well.
Both PS3 and PS4 have their own separate trophy lists with platinums. Better yet, the game is cross-buy!!
Thank you both for the reply.
