Great news today for fans of retro RPGs and Wii U owners. Pier Solar, formally a homebrew Dreamcast game turned success on Kickstarter, is finally slated to hit the Wii U next month. Though it is already available for PS3, PS4, Windows, Mac, Linux and OUYA as of September, I’m sure I’m not the only Wii U fan clamoring for it to hit the Nintendo console.

The wait will officially be over for Wii U fans as of November 6th, which is when they can pick up WaterMelon’s retro RPG epic. I for one am stoked to play it on my Wii U, and hope it was worth the wait!
