We were a little doubtful that NiGHTS
would actually come to Wii. Sure, the latest rumor
shows some compelling evidence, but too often have Nintendo fans been burned by dubious anticipation. SPOnG
, the gaming equivalent of the National Enquirer tabloid, has boldly "confirmed" that NiGHTS
is, indeed, heading to Wii. If that didn't raise a red flag, their "anonymous insider" quote certainly did: "Yes, there is a new NiGHTS
coming, and coming quite soon actually. It's a full game too, not a rehash of old NiGHTS
for Virtual Console as some have said it might be lately. It's a whole new game."
SPOnG notes that former Sega mastermind Yuji Naka is supposedly helming the project with his new company Prope
. While the wise will cast a great shadow of doubt on anything
SPOnG has to say, a glimmer of hope remains that the April exclusive reveal in Official Nintendo Magazine will be everything we've hoped for.
