What you’ve all been wanting to know… the release dates!

17 September; Author: TRiPPY

Announced today ~ NiGHTS into dreams… will be hitting PlayStation Network on the 2nd of October for $9.99 and Xbox LIVE Arcade on October the 5th for 800 Microsoft Points. An incredibly worthwhile purchase considering that the rare and amazing Christmas NiGHTS also comes included as a free bonus! That's right, it's not DLC, it's free. How great is that? NiGHTS as a stand-alone game had tons of replay value but Christmas NiGHTS was always the icing on the cake. I know a lot of fans who have never had the chance to play Christmas NiGHTS on the Saturn due to the difficulty in finding a copy as it was never for sale as a buyable game. Christmas NiGHTS was an extra disk that Sonic Team decided to give out for free as a Christmas gift. Consider it a DLC expansion pack before DLC ever existed on consoles, lol. Gamers could only get a copy by buying certain Saturn bundle packs or free from a couple of gaming magazines (or Ebay of course). So this is a great chance for new fans to experience a little festive spirit.

Christmas NiGHTS looks amazing in HD updated graphics. If you don't believe me wait until you're whizzing around the screen with a ton of crystal clear HD multicolored sparkles in your eyes chasing high scores to beautiful beautiful music (trying your hardest to not kill all your Mepians haha). There's a reason a lot of us still hook up our Saturns every Christmas to play this game. I'm so glad that a new generation will get to experience this lovely gift. It meant a lot to Sonic Team back then and it still does now.

It made me pretty tearful when i got to play it in the office for the first time… lots of fond memories of many Christmas holidays gone by.

Do me a big favour and buy this port when it comes out. In fact buy it as a Xmas gift for a gaming friend! They'll appreciate it, trust me. Christmas NiGHTS is a classic and memorable beautiful experience.
Not long to wait now guys. It'll soon be time to fly again :)

    What about the PC download?

    Wait, what about Steam?  It's still coming for PC, right?  If not I know a lot of people who are going to be angry, myself included.  Looks like a lot of the comments on the SEGA blog are asking about them as well.

    you have officially made the remaining days of this month be OMEGA long…and the first 4 of October….At least I know that I need 1600 points by Oct5. I'm getting sonic ADV 2 too. <twitches with Excitement! XD> There will be a MAJOR Bandwidth drain on MS servers that day!

    Wow!! That's great! I've been waiting for this news for s-o-o-o-o long, and I get it on today, my birthday, of all days!  Wonderful! I hope I'm alive for the October 2nd release date. :D

    I seem to recall Christmas NiGHTS being 'time sensitive' – That is, one non-holidays its played as a regular demo. However, if I remember correctly, one of the levels was a kind of mirrored version of Spring Valley. Any idea if the time element will be preserved or is it like Disney World where everyday is Mickey's birthday?

    I'm just wondering if that's the UK release date, or just the US one. Doesn't our XBLA store usually update on Wednesdays?

  7. Kronicz says:

    I know what I'm getting for my birthday!

    But…. but…. my Steam library is so lonely! When does it come out for PC? And are we getting all that extra stuff, like how on April 1st, NiGHTS and Reala do a body swap, or how on Halloween (at least in the PS2 remake) NiGHTS, Elliot, and Claris all got costumes?

    So much still left unanswered. >.<

  9. All the effort, all the dreams. It's all coming together! I love it!

    Can someone tell me if this is also on PSN Europe on the same week?

  11. Marc says:

    Already beat the first level! I'm so excited for Christmas Nights <3

    Hehe,I can't wait for the steam release! In the meantime, I'd be really awesome to see a new Dreamcast Podcast for this momentous occasion.
