If NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams turns out to be awful, we'll feel a little stupid for hyping it so much (though we always temper our enthusiasm with skepticism, because ... Sega). But even if the game ends up not being perfect, the music is pretty much a known quantity. If you like sappy, uplifing or...

This look into the making of NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams comes courtesy of GameTap and was ripped from a DVD at GameStop (we're not sure if you can pick one up or if it's on those in-store video loops, but we're betting on the latter). It shows some of the backstory on the original Saturn game, as we...

Well then, unless you are a fan of games from Destineer, it looks like there isn't much up for offer this week. Sure, some of you had your interests piqued when you saw your first chunk of gameplay in action. But, was it enough for you to want to pick it up? This week's retail releases are: Sup...

Any gamer would need a heart of blackened teak to not have a soft spot for Sega, and there's arguably no better home for a dyed-in-the-wool Sega fan than the Wii. Over the coming weeks and months, Nintendo's little white box will be hosting a number of updated classic Sega properties, including Ni...

It was bound to happen, but some videos from the end of NiGHTS: Journey into Dreams have found their way onto the internets. The quality of these videos is very poor, but since you can sort of make out what's going on despite the talking in the background, these videos should definitely be conside...

Japanese game shirt maker extraordinaire The King of Games is producing a special shirt in celebration of Sega's newest mascot revival. This NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams shirt comes in black or white and features glow-in-the-dark elements (NiGHTS and the text area on the black shirt, the moon and sta...

Those hoping that the PS2 port of the Sega Saturn classic NiGHTS would be released outside of Japan may be out of luck. Takashi Iizuka -- producer, director, and lead game designer on the Wii-sclusive NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams -- recently spoke with Sega Nerds about all things NiGHTS. When asked abo...

It's a little early for Christmas, but it's always the right time for dancing video game characters! Jan3D has put together a super-short video as an early holiday gift to his/her fellow gamers. And to think that you weren't planning on getting him/her anything. Not much else to say here. Just be...

GamesRadar got their hands on the full version of NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, and, rather than just being jerks about it as we joked in the title, they have actually provided detailed impressions of the game, calling it "a game of contradictions." Some of their concerns aren't relevant to gameplay,...

There are four new NiGHTS videos up over at IGN, just in time for our weekly video spotlight! Overall, there's a lot to admire here; we're always enchanted when we have a chance to follow the eponymous hero on a journey through the air. But some of the textures are just lacking. Is it wrong that w...

While Wii owners will soon be enjoying the first NiGHTS sequel, it looks like PS2 owners will eventually be enjoying the original. Famitsu Magazine reports that an enhanced port of the original Sega Saturn game NiGHTS into Dreams will be coming to the Playstation 2 in Japan in February of next yea...

A fansite called The Sonic Stadium is reporting that there will be no Christmas NiGHTS this year (not to be confused with Christmas NiGHTS, which also won't happen). The rumor originates from Nightsintodreams.com, who previously reported the same thing back in August. We can't find the news item t...

NiGHTS may look and sound a little uneven at times, but we're still looking forward to its release on the 20th, and after this latest trailer from MTV's Multiplayer blog, our interest is piqued all over again. The eponymous hero transforms into other shapes in this video, and we must say, those se...

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams has to be one of the most curious Wii titles in development at the moment. First off, it doesn't always rely on motion controls (Huh?) and though it often looks pretty, sometimes it looks like a nightmare. Sometimes, as in this trailer, the music is gorgeous, and sometimes ...

How about a little splitscreen NiGHTS action? Jeux-France has a bevy of screenshots showing off the two-player mode, and like so many of the screens we've seen from the Sega title, some of them look really great ... while others are, y'know, not. But we're keeping the faith that all will be good ...

We have never had a fear of clowns before, but we think this NiGHTS video just gave us one. For such a cutesy, kid-friendly game, boss Donbalo's face is just off-putting. It's like staring into the candy-colored, laughing face of death. Thankfully, there are four other videos, all of which are muc...

1UP recently had a chance to delve a little deeper into NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, in particular the game's multiplayer and "My Dream" modes. Reportedly, the former is to consist of two gametypes, one of which -- imaginatively titled "Race Mode" -- will be fully playable online. This will see two...

As previously reported, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams on the Wii will take real-time weather information from the Wii's forecast channel. Instead of using this feature in story mode, however, NiGHTS will only make use of real-time weather in the "My Dream" mode, a virtual pet environment separate from...

The issue of NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams' control scheme is getting more complicated-- and, to us, more awesome. Reports from TGS indicated that the game made no use of motion controls; later, we heard that the motion controls were optional, and disappointing. But it seems that we have yet to hear t...

IGN's Levi Buchanan has written a feature questioning the significance of Sega's NiGHTS, both on the Saturn in 1997 and on the Wii now. The feature suggests that NiGHTS may not be as important as Sega fans think it is (but what could be?) because it wasn't really 3D and, more importantly, not that m...
