Have a gander

I havn't had a chance to go through it, so post your findings !

EDiT : mmm. Comparison shots are juicy. And theres a true Widescreen mode. And a developers blog, which would be oh so nice to read. And character profiles.

Someone, anyone. We need your translating skillz again.

It looks like the other items they are selling are the game with the music CD (DX pack) and something else. It also looks like they have a Nightopian Dream Pack DX....but not a place where I can just buy the CD. Damn it all. I already pre-ordered the Dream pack. It seems to get the CD I would have to buy the DX pack, and that comes with the game as well? Correct me if I am wong on all this. I had to use a horrible translator to translate the Sega Direct page. If it is all true...ugh I am not made of money. Its going to have to sit there.

ALso, its fun to make fun of Babble fish translation. "Reissue picture book NiGHTS - the wing not being even when can fly the sky, -"

I really hope this comes to America. I will buy that version as well instead of getting Action Reply so that I can play the Japanese version...

If you want a match in MKDS, Pokemon, Metroid, Wii, NDS, X360 or want to challenge me to do something in a non Wifi game (NiGHTS Score challenge, Mario Speedrun, etc.)... Go fo it! I'm always up for a game! :D<br /><br />Next is Photoshop, I've been messing with Photoshop for almost a year and a half already. I like to make stuff out of renders, pictures, videos. A challenge peaks my interest! :)
Damn, this would definitly make a great addition to my library (i barely have any PS2 games at all!) Sega is doing some work on the remake that is making me cry! Here's to hoping that Sega would show us some love and let us have some of that pie!

Sega would be bloody mad if they don't release this outside of Japan.

I....hate....region....codes. They use it to jack the price up, make us wait while they stuff around, or make sure that PAL and American gamers don't get it at all without the expensie of importing of both the game AND a Japanese console. SCREW THAT!

I'm a PAL gamer (we get bugger all for releases unlike you Americans) and finding a Saturn here in Australia is like finding a needle in a haystack, yet PS2s are extremely common. Luckily mod chips are legal on anything that has a region code here in Australia, so I'm modchipping my fat PS2, so I can play NiD.

...and make a $20 Wii version so I can actually buy it... dry.gif -the only person in the world that doesn't have a PS2-


Even if they don't release this on PS2 here, I wouldn't mind a Wii version, or even a VC release.

Do you guys reckon the play-asia dream pack will have everything that the dream pack does on sega direct?

I know the Dreams Pack deluxe edition contains the game,badges,book and soundtrack.

What is confusing me slightly is that the Dream pack on SEGA states the badges are included with the book and game, however on play-asia there is no mention.

If play-asia have the badges then I will just order the soundtrack from sega direct and save a bit of money. :(

Thats what I would like to know as well. Is there really a way for and American to do that? If so I will happily cancel (if I can) my pre order at Play-asia and just buy the DX pack at Sega-Direct.

I dont import it directly myself guys but a friend told me about someone from Japan that imported her Nights Jouney of Dreams deluxe version from Japan with a Nights t shirt from SEGA direct.

So I asked if he could also do it for me and now he will order me a Deluxe version of it too along with the t shirt in my size as well, XS. If it all goes well I am definetly going to ask for this soundtrack and perhaps this PS2 deluxe edition too. ;)

Will tell him if he doesnt mind doing orers for some more people and reply back here.

I noticed awhile ago that the clipping is further away in the remake version. I've wanted to play this game for so long but my Sega Saturn no longer likes to play discs. o_O
I'm very happy for the inclusion of the original Sega Saturn mode. At least Sega gives you choices, and its not just here either Sega Ages I remember gave you choices. Not many collection games even do the kind of emulation I've seen that Sega gives. =3

TRANSLATIONS AM COMING. I'll take a go at Jackle first.

Just a teaser, but I see the word "crazy" in his description. :wub:

ETA: Whoa. According to what my sister and I are bouncing between each other as a translation, there's a bombshell ya'll will like in Jackle's description.

Haha I tried translating Jackle's description myself a while ago, too. I couldn't make very much sense of it, but I think I know what bombshell you are referring to.
I know I see the word "firstlevel" in that last sentence there, anyway...

All right, folks, here's Jackle's description, in which fanon becomes canon.

Yep, that's right. Unless this has been said somewhere else and I'm just completely oblivious to it (which is a real possibility), we have a new tidbit about Jackle's origin:


His body concealed by a large cape, he is the most crazy Second-Level. Using bizzare means, by all costs he will make the Visitor fear him. When he's wearing his big cape, he's invincible and can repel any attacks. It is rumored that he is the result of a failed attempt at making a First Level Nightmaren...?


There you have it. Apparently Jackle is indeed a proto-First Level Nightmaren. Which makes sense, given how physically similar he is to NiGHTS and Reala.

Well, that does make much more sense than my theory of 'he was first class but got bumped down to second by Wizeman for some reason', and this is cool, especially since it makes room for fan-things by calling it a rumor.

Well, I don't see Jackle as a failed attempt but I'm not Wizeman so ... yeah. On the upside, the fact that he didn't turn out right may be the reason for his insanity.

The last sentence literally reads:

Uwasa de wa, Wizeman ga first level o tsukuridashita kiwa no shippaisaku da to ka...?

Shippaisaku, according to my sister and a Japanese dictionary, means failed creative work; flop; dud; bomb. Haha, poor Jackle. We still love him despite his supposed flunkie status.

The one thing in that sentence I'm a tad unsure of is "kiwa", but I think in the context of this sentence it means "when" or "occasion".

You're quite welcome, guys. And sorry I'm taking so long on the rest. I've been heckuva busy this semester and have barely any time or energy to sit down and do things for fun. The profiles aren't hard to understand gramatically, but it's the kanji that slay me. I don't recognize many of them, meaning I have to use Jim Breen's online kanji lookup and try to look them up by radical/stroke count, which can take upwards of an hour for just one of those boss profiles. :P

Here's the first sentence of Clawz' profile:

A black cat type Second Level that has sharp claws.

:lol: EXCITING. The rest of his doesn't look too wonderfully informative. Maybe I'll get around to it this weekend since I have Monday off.

I'll try to get to Puffy after that. Just from a quick scanover, it looks like it's mostly talking about her beachball-esque body and how on earth you're supposed to beat her, perhaps there being a hint in her room about it. I'll do a more thorough translation later.

I think it's been mentioned but...Look at the movie theater section in with the comparison shots. Are there that many videos in the game? Intro, Claris Intro, Elliot Intro, Claris Ending, Elliot ending, Joint ending, Tower scenes, Christmas intro, Christmas ending. Am I missing something, or are there two extra movise? Unless those are promo vids...

Yes, those are the tower scenes. I included them. So, we still have two videos unaccounted for. I believe, with SEGA's track record with rereleases and dissapointments, it will be the 2 movies you get as presents in Christmas NiGHTS.
