“NiGHTS into Dreams…” Turns 25!

7 July;  Author: Dex la Cabra

 

On the 5th of July 1996, a special little game was released in Japan, "NiGHTS into Dreams…"!

This game would go on to become a cult classic, garnering love and support from fans of the characters and worlds

it presented as well as the music and gameplay!

25 years have passed since that initial release and here I am now writing up this anniversary article,

4 July;  Author: Dex la Cabra

Hello again! We have a very short but sweet NiGHTS Community Post this month!

Until next time~!

The fabled "NiGHTS Dream Wheel" has finally reared its head, with San Manuel Casino

tweeting a couple of days ago about its presence at their venue!

 

"This is not a dream and you aren't in Nightopia… YET!

SEGA Sammy's NiGHTS Dream Wheel has hit our casino floor! Located on the second floor near the Merch Shop,

this game features a .01c denom with a .50c min and $5 max bet."

 

I don't know the first thing about these kinds of machines but visually they've gone all out using JoD imagery~!

We've got Reala, Owl and Nightopian icons incorporated into the game, and I'm guessing the

NiGHTS model by the actual wheel may be animated to a degree?

 

[EDIT] twitter user Isabel has tweeted a video of the machine in action~!

I'm surprised it's not pachinko~!

Ooh er, wasn't expecting that! As you may know, The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise turned 30 years old yesterday,

and SEGA streamed a special orchestra event covering music from throughout the franchise. 

A little sneaky treat happened though, with a dash of NiGHTS music making its way in due to Sonics presence

on "Christmas NiGHTS into Dreams…" Skip to 38:17 to catch a little snippet of heaven~!

 

 

It gives us a good idea of what the NiGHTS section of the SEGA Game Symphony Japan performance in

2015 would have sounded like, as there still seems to be no recordings of that particular event!

 

until next time~!

It's not perfect but by god does it have some good stuff going on in there, from the music to the art direction to

that one costume that totally breaks the game but it feels GREAT to do so haha!

Until next time~!

Plushes

6 March;  Author: Dex la Cabra

Wayyyy back when "NiGHTS into Dreams…" first came out there were

plush toys available from UFO Catcher machines in Japan!

There were 6 toys available: NiGHTS, Flying NiGHTS, Reala, Elliot, Claris and a Nightopian!

I don't currently own the Flying NiGHTS plush (the only difference is his arms are up

and I've never felt like putting 200 quid down for such a small variant) but the others

are all viewable here! They're rough by todays plush standards, but they're still

some really nice collectables to have!

Community Post: February 2021

3 March;  Author: Dex la Cabra

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "Dex, shouldn't this be February/March?"!

I had something of a realisation that I was labelling the post after the month the post was uploaded in,

but not the month that actual art was collected over, so I've waited a bit to realign it all!

This post collects artwork and such from both, January and February but the last

Community post already said January so I didn't label it again haha!

Okay enough waffle, let's look at some beautiful beautiful art~!
