And I fail to see how this is a problem.
Wasn't our greatest fear Sega destroying a classic revered by most and taking away all of NiGHTS' glory? Well, by looking at those videos, I'm not terribly afraid that'll happen anymore -- it looks like it plays exactly like the original NiGHTS.
While you may use the Twilight Princess argument and say "it's Ocarina of Time all over again", is that really such a bad thing? I'd rather have the same game polished up and released to a more successful and accessible console than seeing the addition, removal or change of gameplay features that will ultimately completely break the game (read: Sonic The Hedgehog 2006).
So yeah, while the graphics seem a little bit dodgy (what's up with those blue chips?), the gameplay seems mostly intact and control seems to be tight enough (you don't see the player constantly ramming the walls or such), so this is actually shaping up to be a worthwhile game.
What I'm still very concerned about is the game's music. It was undoubtedly one of the defining aspects of the original, and so it should remain in the sequel. I can't tell you how tired I'm getting of seeing games with background music which is, well, just background music. (Sure, there are a few gems here and there, but 75% of today's game soundtracks aren't exactly what you'd put on your MP3 player and listen to on the go.)
