NiD 2nd Level Nightmaren

31 July;  Author: Dex la Cabra

Naturally under the 1st level Nightmaren of Wizeman's henchman hierarchy are the 2nd level Nightmaren. They serve as the bosses of the game and will appear only when their respective level has been completed. Each Nightmaren has a unique way of fighting that you'll have to learn if you hope to get the 2.0 score multiplier! Thanks to neriede for the translations!

Gillwing

JP Remake Translation:

"By Second Level standards, he's got a huge, enormous body but he's really just a big air-head. The moment he considers you an enemy, he'll stop at nothing to chase you down. he possesses the ability to re-grow his head from his long tail."

 

Gillwing is a gigantic dragon consisting of a head, two wings, a tail and more spikes than you can shake a broom at! He can regenerate his head at the expense of losing a section of his tail. You can defeat him by knocking his head off until he runs out of tail to regenerate from, thus winning you the battle. A quicker way to beat him however, is to sneak up behind him and paraloop the end of his tail, destroying all of it at once! This method is recommended for more true paraloop masters though, so get practising! In Christmas NiGHTS Gillwing is redesigned to have a far more christmas themed appearance.

His theme is called "The Dragon Gave a Large Scream."

Puffy

JP Remake Translation:

"A rubber ball-like Second-Level, her body is pliable and flexible. Because of this, NiGHTS' attacks don't seem to work on her. Maybe somewhere around that mansion she created there's a clue to defeating her."

 

A bejewelled humanoid bouncy ball with rabbit ears, Puffy is definitely one of the more obscure Nightmaren, at least in appearance. Puffy is invincible to typical attacks such as drill dashing and paralooping. Instead, you have to knock Puffy through the various walls of her domain. This leads to the end of a corridor, where our poor bouncing gal is flattened and popped by falling debris. In the "Sonic into Dreams" present on Christmas NiGHTS, Puffy is reskinned to look like Doctor Eggman. Her theme is replaced by "Final Fever" from Sonic CD.

Her theme is called "She Had Long Ears."

Gulpo

JP Remake Translation:

"This fish-type Secon-Level will swallow anything up completely with his huge mouth. His form is ferocious, but his personality is surprisingly calm. Knowing his weakness is his slowness, he's set up traps all around his body to catch his prey."

 

Gulpo is a Large fish-like Nightmaren who swims within a cylinder of water. He summons smaller red fish to surround the perimeter of his water, and has them attack with purple waves only a handful at a time. NiGHTS can use these fish when not attacking to propel himself through the water to the opposite side of the cylinder. If NiGHTS collides with Gulpo, it will hurt him and make him expose his belly, allowing NiGHTS to land further hits quickly. Be careful though, as sometimes Gulpo will surround his own body with waves of energy which will detract 5 seconds of valuable time from the player if NiGHTS hits Gulpo in this state.

His theme is called "Deep it Lies."

Clawz

JP Remake Translation:

"ASecond-Level black cat with sharp claws, he's spiteful by nature and would rather torment you from the shadows than attack you fair and square. So, just how far will NiGHTS have to chase those quick feet…?"

 

Clawz is cat-like in appearance, and has the incredible agility to go with it. The arena consists of two rings, with firework mice lining them. Clawz can only stand on these mice, and detonates them over time, jumping to the nearest other one. NiGHTS must break the sparking ones before they take off, acting as missiles. If NiGHTS gets close to Clawz when he can't reach the other mice, he can grab him and kill him in one hit.

His theme is called "E-LE-KI Sparkle."

Jackle

JP Remake Translation:

"Wrapped in a huge cloak, this is one insane Second-Level. He'll use totally bizarre and unthought of methods-whatever it takes, really-to scare visitors. Stored within his cloak is the unrivaled power to repel whatever attacks come this way. Rumor has it that Wizeman intended for him to be a First-Level, but something failed in that moment of creation…"

 

Jackle is perhaps the most popular of the 2nd level Nightmaren. It is often debated whether his body is invisible or non-existent. Regardless, only his hands, feet, eyes and mouth are apparent, alongside his hat and cape. It is also speculated that Jackle represents the Grim Reaper, with the surrounding of his domain backing this. Jackle attacks by throwing tarot cards which leave a trail of colour behind. He is invincible so long as he possesses his cape, so the aim is to catch up to Jackle and knock his cape off. Once detached, Jackle will make a beeline for his cape, allowing NiGHTS to catch and attack him continuously.

Sonic Runners NiGHTS Event Now Active!

30 July;  Author: Dex la Cabra

The NiGHTS into Dreams event in Sonic Runners has now begun, allowing you to unlock Buddies of NiGHTS, Reala and a Nightopian! The event lasts until the 13th of August, so get collecting those Red Rings for the Premium Roulette! I'll be collecting images of the event for you to view here if you cant/don't want to download Sonic Runners.

 

There are a few changes to the BGM during this event. The premium Roulette wheel now has "DREAMS DREAMS (In Silent Memory)" playing. If you have all 10 special eggs however, it changes to "Growing Wings." Using NIGHTS as Buddy 1 changes the BGM to "Message from Nightopia", while Reala gets "NiGHTS and Reala" fittingly. While the Nightopian doesn't get a song, it sings the first 6 notes of the chorus of "DREAMS DREAMS" when its ability is activated.

I love how Sonic Team even kept them to scale with the Sonic characters, I think there was a lot of love going on when making this event :)

I'm still trying to unlock Reala,

This'll give me a reason to play it again haha,

  • Paternal Horn
  • Gloom of The NHC
  • Suburban Museum
  • The Amazing Water

  • Growing Wings
  • D’Force Master

Sorry for the delay with this post, it wasn't until viperxmns reminded me that I realised I hadn't posted this yet D:

Nintendo opened the above website for people to vote for who they want as DLC in the new Super Smash Bros games for the Wii U and 3DS. I know we're a small fanbase here so the chances are slim of us getting NiGHTS in to Smash Bros, but it'd be cool for us all to pull together and at least get NiGHTS' name out there as a possibility :)  

imagining NiGHTS paralooping Mario in the face,

Hi there NiGHTS fans! Game Symphony Japan are to perform their 14th concert this year using music from SEGA games, and guess which franchise will be getting a song played! :) The concert will take place on the 10th October 2015, hopefully there will be a place online for us to catch this. It'll be a wee delight to hear NiGHTS music being performed live with an orchestra! What song do you think they will perform? Join the discussion in our forums :)

Thanks to viperxmns for making me aware of this! :)

Betting it'll be "NiGHTS" they perform,

Dex la Cabra~!
