How is this for perfect timing? In an interview released today with SEGA's Yosuke Okunari the producer of the upcoming XBLA Dreamcast ports, it was revealed that all hope is not lost for the SEGA Saturn's catalogue of classic games! This makes the possibility of the long overdue western NiGHTS port so much more likely.

From Nowgamer.com via Impress Watch

"Okunari : It's not that we're ignoring Saturn I think you can see this, considering that we ported Nights Into Dreams (PS2) and other titles. What we announced this time is a project where we will have consecutive releases of titles that were debuted on Dreamcast. Separate from this, we're of course thinking about ports of Saturn games. It's the same as how Sega Ages and Virtual Console were separate existences. It's not that we have no intention of porting Saturn titles, so please share your requests."

Of course a giant flaming fangirl like me is never happy with second-hand information so I approached Okunari-san directly myself with the request for NiGHTS to be ported for download directing him to our NiD15.com campaign website to show him demand for the title. I explained that although the PS2 version is nice it's not convenient for fans (especialy younger fans) to have to import things from Japan. And what do you know, within a few minutes he replied to me :) He acknowleges that the PS2 version never made it overseas BUT he states that he would be interested in challenging himself with a NiGHTS port if the chance came up. So hey, let's make that chance happen~ show your support for www.NiD15.com.

There are a lot of great titles on the Saturn i grew up with from Burning Rangers to Panzer Dragoon, Guardian Heroes to Fighters Megamix. If all Saturn fans pull together we might actually see this happen. The hardware might not have sold insane amounts back in the day but the games were incredible. Get to it.
