Hello you beautiful people!
A SEGA based anime called "Hi SCoool! SeHa Girls" has just started airing in Japan, and it's one you just might want to keep an eye on! A certain purple jester (perhaps you've heard of him/her?) makes a cameo appearance in the first episode alongside several other SEGA characters. The premise of the show is that girls based on SEGA's consoles jump throughout their expansive history of games, with the first episode ending with the initial 3 girls (Mega Drive, Saturn and Dreamcast respectively,) entering the world of Virtua Fighter. You can find the first episode on Youtube and services such as Crunchyroll, I recommend giving it a watch if only to see NiGHTS flying overhead I have high hopes for this series though, the first episode already had me hooked and laughing!

Hey all! Jewels Jaselle, voice actor of NiGHTS his/herself, is featured on a new song! The song is a re-make of George Michael's "I Want Your Sex," with Jewels performing the vocals. It's a good song to dance away to, with a nice beat and her voice using some funky effects! Even if dance music isn't your cup of tea it's definitely worth a listen.
It's always great to see what the voice cast of the NiGHTS franchise are up to these days, and we should totally support her!

Well hello there!
This is Dex la Cabra reporting for duty, making my first post as Admin to this illustrious site How you all doing? I've got a lot of ideas brewing for this place, but don't worry, this will always be the site you know and love, I'm not going to take a sledgehammer to it or anything For those who don't know me, I should tell you a little bit about myself!
I'm 23 at the time of posting this and have lived in Elgin, Scotland for my entire life. I'm an artist at heart, and while I'm not as good as our own Lynne Triplett I must admit I'm getting some skill in the field if I do say so myself! My favourite band is Gorillaz, you may know them for the animated videos that accompany Damon Albarn's typically melancholic sounds. I've got a few favourite films, such as Hackers (there's nothing wrong with a bit of cheese lol), TRON Legacy and Ghost in the Shell, so I guess i'm a fan of Cyberpunk! as far as Video Games are concerned, I'm a fan of SEGA's earlier works (can you imagine that, being an admin of a NiD website and being a fan of SEGA's earlier works?) though in recent years have been branching into Nintendo's back catalogue. I've been a fan of the NiGHTS franchise since I got my SEGA Saturn about 10-11 years ago, though didn't become an active member of this website until JoD was on the cards. I went by Kisuke Urahara back then, my favourite character from the manga BLEACH.
To quote Pennywise the Dancing Clown, "There, so now we know each other!" Please bear with me whilst this little chicken learns his way around the ranch, I'm sure we'll all have plenty of great times over the years!
Hey, remember Will's Dad? He never forgets you~
Hi guys, TRiPPY here.
Sorry you've not heard from us in a long time, life became incredibly busy after I went full-time artist mode. I've been working on awesome published comic books and getting things set up for the end of 2014 with my new Engelbaum Patreon campaign (Check it out if you ever enjoyed my dream/Gen related comic work!: http://www.patreon.com/trippy).
The years may come and go but I still love NiGHTS the same as ever. It's his 18th birthday today, wow can you believe that, 18 years… it honestly seems like just yesterday to me the first time I dreamed of him or played the actual game. So many great positive things have come of that day 18 years ago. And we're still all here!
Because of how busy my life is right now though I feel it's only right to hand the reins over to another admin so that everyone can enjoy the website again with updates and activity. I feel very guilty about not being able to work on this website since I worked so incredibly hard on it for many years. So rather than let it fade I'd like to give it a kick up the butt and get some stuff rolling again. Me and DiGi are going to take a back seat for now after we technically hit the heights of doing as much as we possibly could for NiGHTS and you guys. We lived the dream we built and now it's time for new dreams and new faces. It's been a lot of fun working with you guys over the years, causing trouble and getting NiGHTS back into the spotlight again. So much so that we don't even have to ask SEGA anymore. They know people care about NiGHTS now. Lots of us. And I knew that when I worked at SEGA myself, working on NiGHTS with DiGi, that all those coffeelicious 5am HTML blasts back in 1999 on a Dreamcast browser were worth it, lol. So thank you.
Lately it seems the NiGHTS community has migrated over to Tumblr, which is cool, but I still think this website is a great information point for new and old fans so it deserves to be preserved.
But It's with great happiness and pleasure that I tell you all today that from this point onwards (after all the server side stuff is sorted out for his accounts yadda yadda) that our new main admin of NiGHTSintoDreams.com is the wonderful Dex la Cabra. A long time NiGHTS fan and a good friend of ours with SO MUCH enthusiasm and care for what he does. He's friendly, sensible and just the right kind of guy this place needs to get things running again. So give him a warm welcome and prepare for cool things again I myself have tons of content, emails and work that have built up over 2 years that myself need to submit to the site, so it's going to be Dex's job to give you guys the goodies, report on both SEGA and community news and keep an eye on everything in the ~ world of dreams.
If i could explain just how much this website has given me, both as a person, a fan, an ex employee and a dreamer I'd have to write a very long book. All I will say is that without this website and NiGHTS I wouldn't be where I am in life now, surrounded by great people, working my dream jobs and waking up every morning to see DiGi beside me. It's all been worth it. Every single thing.
So never let anyone tell you that dreams are worthless. NiGHTS is always there if you need him, no-matter who you are or how impossible things might seem.
Thank you to DiGi, to the fans, to my friends at SEGA Europe, Japan, America and China, Sonic Team, Naoto Ohshima and to our magical 18 year old purple guy.
Lynne Triplett & Niyazi Sonmez signing off ~
Here's a great opportunity for all you American NiGHTS fans to meet the lady behind the official voice of NiGHTS in Journey of Dreams! The wonderful and multi-talented Jewels Aguirre has been confirmed as a special guest at RMCC this coming October in Colorado. Jewels will be doing signings and would really love to meet the NiGHTS fans. This is her first convention appearance so lets give her lots of support! Tell all your NiGHTSy friends who live local to the convention or hit the road yourself I really wish I could go but I'm stuck in the UK, booo.
UPDATE 2: For those of you who missed the stream you can rewatch all the recorded video via Malan's profile page Here: http://www.twitch.tv/malantp/profile
UPDATE: The stream will run today (Thursday) at 7PM GMT at Malan's Twitch channel: http://fr.twitch.tv/malantp
You can either sign up to the Twitch chat client and log in or use our NiD chatroom which is still situated here:
See you there!
Those of you interested in the technical game side of NiGHTS things will be delighted to know that the brilliant Malan will be hosting a Livestream this coming week to show off the infamous removed Saturn debug mode and the Beta. This gives you the chance to ask questions and get him to check things out on your behalf. Here's the message from Malan:
Yesterday morning I decided to do some custom stuff on my Mega Drive 2 and my Saturn to add 50Hz/60Hz and PAL/NTSC switches. It works very well, I’ve tested it on some EU/JP games and on the NiD Beta. I posted a video of the Beta on youtube, but maybe people want to see more details, or ask questions etc… same for the famous debug mode, I assume that not many people have an action replay to play with it.
So I will be doing a Livestream of the Beta and the debug mode on the original game. So, everyone will be able to ask me to do anything they want to, on live.
This is being planned for some time Thursday evening GMT (12th). So please check back on Thursday for stream details and time!
I just stumbled across this 5 minutes ago on Deviant Art and it made me grin a lot, since this is the first Claris and Elliot team up cosplay I've ever seen. I thought I'd share so you guys can send some appreciation their way. Amazing work guys!
