It should have a dream/ vision called something like "Bullet Boulevard" where you can only damage marens with razorblades near their necks while you evade their uzzi shower, but then the collision detection glitches lock the game and the textures all start to warp simultaneously like if it was programmed for the PSX by a retarded 12yo.

Then the Deluxe/ Director's cut version would add Time attack (in the first one the programmers forgot to add a timer altogether to begin with) and missions to find hidden nightopians as either Claris, Elliot, Dark Elliot's twin, Macaulay Culkin or Haley Joel Osment's step-cousin.

If nothing else, I'm still loving the art.

Ditto... and I'm wondering how a "Yuji Uekawa-style" NiGHTS would look like? I mean, hand-drawn.

EDIT: Great, almost whole cast's back with Reala's return. Maybe a guest appearance of the rest of the Nightmarens would be a good idea.

Reala is the main villain, ala Archie comic's NiGHTs 2? Didn't see that one coming.

I really [don't] expect to see Reala in a huge cape with a long trident in his hands (I say his because he has these manly, big muscles).

Also, there's a topic about the game in Sonic Team's website.
And I just noted how well designed NiGHTS' buttocks are. Soft, sexy curve.

Odd how NiGHTS is androgynous while Reala is obviously a dude.

I'm pretty sure they did that because NiGHTS merges with the kids, and giving him -- well, it -- a defined gender would make one of those merges creepy and weird.

Hum, it looks somehow uninspired, non-wacky. Boring (still stylish, but boring).

I find this podcast creepy, great and fucked up... then really creepy.

Reala had muscles? Wow, I'd actually never noticed that before. No, really! I'd just assumed his arms were more or less identical to NiGHTS' - that is to say, relatively nondescript.

Anyway, I'm not too surprised that Reala's the main badguy, honestly... He was always NiGHTS' rival of sorts, anyway.

I thought that most of Sonic Team original members don’t work for Sega anymore, as least not like “Sonic Team” and yes that includes Naka. The team that made the original Nights is gone, so after the almost sure failure we can blame all to the "new guys"

I don't really care who is to blame, only that the game sucks or not.

OK, and after an onslaught of Swedish and Portuguese magazines' scans, here comes Official Nintendo Magazine UK WORLD EXCLUSIVE! info. All the rest at TRiPPY's place.

I believe Uekawa did a drawing of NiGHTS. There's one on the back of my Sonic Pinball Party box. At least, I THINK Uekawa drew it. Looks SA-ish.

Edit: beaten by SEGA Monkey. :|

The only person that is still in ST that was involved with the original NiGHTS is Iizuka.

I'm just glad to hear that you have the option to NOT use the motion sensing controls. I was afraid that they can be unresponsive and jittery at times.

... I didn't read about it anywhere. Infact, it would be perfect if you could play the game with the Classic controller or (alternativelly) the GCN one too.

And no way he's talking to me, mine rules.

Well if the old scheme is being offered then they shouldn't be fucking with the gameplay too much.

Also, I'm wondering about the game's music.
Is the original sound team still at ST (namely Makino, Hataya, Sasaki and Kumatani)? I think they provided the music for Phantasy Star Universe, didn't they?

Yeah, they're all still with SEGA; or more specifically Wave-Master. Fumie Kumatani was one of the composers for Phantasy Star Universe along with Hideaki Kobayashi, Kenichi Tokoi and a few others.

Kumatani contributed a somewhat NiGHTs-esque track for the Skeleton Dome stage of Secret Rings.

This is fairly interesting. The original composer is back on board doing the music for Journey of Dreams according to Iizuka. Not sure what to make of this though:

"The sequel is built around a dramatic storyline that will engage the player and guide them intuitively through the adventure."

:wink:

Iizuka is a pretty professional liar.
