Blast processing LIVES! A new Sega Megadrive game is coming soon


While not the most retro-minded staff member on Destructoid, it has to be said that I loved my old Megadrive growing up. Better known to some as the Genesis, the console that my brother and I shared saw a lot of use, as we teamed up to play Golden Axe, Streets of Rage and, of course, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (even though I was always bloody Tails). It is with great pleasure then, that I bring to you news that a brand new game for the Megadrive is being released after all these years, the J-RPG which has recently been officially named Pier Solar and the Great Architects.

Developed by the Sega homebrew community, Pier Solar (originally codenamed Tavern RPG) is a traditional RPG that sees you quest for the fate of the universe. It also looks really pretty in that retro-goggles way. The word is that just like my favorite adventures of old, the game is going to be released in cartridge format. A downloadable demo should also be available soon.

While the game has had some online teasers for a while, it should be coming out some time in 2008. If you've not heard of it before, check out the trailer above, and the game's Web site. Is that not some lovely, lovely music?
