It's not so much lying, as totally ignoring the questions being asked, as if he were in a parallel universe where he is simply talking to himself. Allow me to translate:
First of all, just to relax the diehard fans, will the Wii version of NiGHTS be following the fundamental game mechanics of the original?
Takeshi Iizuka: Now that Naka's gone, I can finally make a sequel without him having a hissy fit and Sammy is having one anyways because they say NiGHTS is less marketable with the tween demographic than Sonic. I'm doing the best I can, and I'm going to finish this because I've wanted to do it for a decade
Can we expect any radical gameplay departures from the original?
Takeshi Iizuka: Not fucking likely. People couldn't even appreciate the original's, much less trying to complicate shit.
Will the music in NiGHTS still change based on the mood of the Nightopians?
Takeshi Iizuka: What Nightopians?
Will the original's wide range of moves be making a return - and will they rely on motion-sensing controls?
Takeshi Iizuka: What? I wasn't listening.
Grabbing enemies and throwing them around was often the solution to some of the original's more intense battles. Will we still be grabbing foes in the Wii version and if so how will the remote let us throw them around?
Takeshi Iizuka: Wiggling the remote. What do you expect? If you can masturbate, you can play this game.
Will you be bringing back the 'A-Life' system?
Takeshi Iizuka: Shit no. We hardly have enough time to finish the core gameplay without adding in a virtual pet system.
Christmas NiGHTS cleverly employed the Saturn's internal clock to alter the game world, particularly the weather conditions. Any chance of the Wii Weather Channel being used for some similar effects?
Takeshi Iizuka: The Wii has stuff on it that makes things run. We're planning on implementing this "running" technology that uses "electricity" in the future.
And what about using Miis?
Takeshi Iizuka: No. And stop asking about Miis and face facts - only Nintendo-sponsored minigame collections are ever going to use the fucking things. GET OVER IT.
