SEGA Announces NiGHTS into Dreams HD
Today, SEGA announced that an HD remake of NiGHTS into Dreams, the beloved Saturn game, is to come to PSN at some point this fall. Boasting HD widescreen graphics, trophies and leaderboards, the game looks to be everything a fan of the original could want in a remake. In order to satisfy the purists out there too, SEGA is including a mode called “Saturn Mode”, which will allow players to play the game with the original graphics, untouched by modern hands. The debut trailer for the game is posted above, and the PR is below. I only briefly played the Saturn original, so I’m especially looking forward to playing this one.
Today is a day that many NiGHTS fans have been waiting for. We’re so excited to announce that an HD remake of the fan-favorite flying platformer, NiGHTS into dreams…, will be coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Windows PC Digital Download this fall.
