Watermelon Launch Teaser Trailer For Upcoming Sega Dreamcast & Modern Platform RPG 'Pier Solar HD'

Pier-Solar-HD-Teaser-TrailerFollowing the arrival of the first Pier Solar HD screenshots in January, Watermelon Games have finally released a teaser trailer for the game showing real-time footage in action. If you hadn't already dusted off your Dreamcast for one of the many recent homebrew additions to the console, this all new adventure will no doubt have you shining up the system in advance.

Originally landing on the Mega Drive, Pier Solar had all the makings of a iconic RPG - a fantastic story, stunning visuals, gorgeous spritework and an intricate battle system. Luckily enough for us, all of these enticing features have remained intact for the HD revival, with the change being that the pixels have been replaced with vectors.
If the earlier screenshots and this teaser trailer are anything to go by, we're in for a treat. Watermelon's eye for detail and desire to create memorable gaming moments certainly shines through.

The only problem with Pier Solar HD is that no solid release date has been confirmed as of yet. That said, those wanting to sample this adventure early are in luck as Watermelon are looking for beta testers.

This is probably a stupid question but...the Dreamcast release isn't going to be HD, is it? I mean, the Dreamcast isn't a HD console, right?

HD was a term for stuff long before HD TVs got people measuring screen resolutions in '720p'.

Off the top of my head, I remember Half-Life: Blue Shift including an 'HD model pack' add-on for the original game, for example.
