YES AWESOMESAUSE!

But you know, the best thing about all this is that after this whole ordeal, SEGA will most likely not leave NiGHTS out of any future "All-Stars" game again. (If there are any more. ) :)

Yeah those are the Saturn colors, before they found that the switch was more popular. They used it for SST.

Hopefully we can get NiGHTS playable..(not even gonna touch stage 3 yet- a NiGHTS course would be fantastic)

SLAGGIN' STRAIGHT, WOMAN! XD


Since DLC is going to be determined by how well the game does...

GO BUY THE GAME, PEOPLE! DON'T RENT! BUY!
After all, if they don't get any money, they can't afford to pay their awesome tech people to make NiGHTS playable. SUPPORT THE GAME TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPERS.

So many thanks to you S0L and everone else at Sumo. I really don't think any of us could thank you enough. Building connections to the fan communities like this is such a rare thing in video games nowadays and it's great to see a developer that cares.

Here's hoping to see more good things on the horizon.

Very cool stuff SOL while it is a bit of a shame NiGHTS wont be playable its still great you got him into the game from the request from the fans.

If you don’t mind SOL I have some questions myself if you would be so kind to answer if you dont mind.

1: since we know DLC is possible on 360 and PS3 what about the Wii version of the game? Since the storage memory of the system is tiny yet now developers are able to bring DLC to the system, which can run off an SD Card. Would you be using this method to allow Wii owners a chance to play as NiGHTS or any other SEGA character that may turn up in the future if SEGA give you guys the go ahead for DLC?

2: any chance you may be able to give us a list of Characters you wanted in the game that you told SEGA you wanted but SEGA said no too and give us the reason why they said no?

3: If DLC gets the green light may I suggest Ristar as nearly all SEGA fans wanted him in the game so it would make my and every SEGA fans day if he burned rubber with some of SEGA’s finest?

Thanks again SOL, all the best for you and the rest of the SUMO crew.

Nice. I campaigned for this. XD

So this model of NiGHTS is the one used for SuperStar Tennis with no tweaks whatsoever?

I'm not being a jerk for pointing it out, at all. This kind of things interest me, models, and artwork, and etc. Hey, would it be too much to ask for some artwork like all the other racers already have. I suppose it's an easy thing to do? I want to compare to the other one.

Fun fact: Nintendo doesn't allow real DLC unless both the 3rd party publisher and Nintendo come to some agreement. This has been revealed since Ryota Niitsuma wanted Phoenix Wright and Ingrid as DLC characters for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, but told his fans that we'd have to bug Nintendo to allow it.

Thank you so much, S0L and everyone at Sumo and Sega who helped put NiGHTS in as Flagman! I'm definitely buying this game! And if I can, I'll buy more copies for birthday gifts. :)

Just been browsing around the net and I'm really happy to see so many positive comments about NiGHTS in general. I've not seen so many people talk positively about NiGHTS since JoD's existence was first unveiled. Great to see people both happy for the flagman, appreciative of the work involved AND asking for playable NiGHTS DLC!

Major thanks to those of you spreading this around! :)

DLC or not I'm happy NiGHTS is getting the attention.

I wanna make a Super Mario Kart hack of some sort that replaces Lakitu with NiGHTS.

And.. it's still kinda nuts, but lookit this! LOOKIT THIS!! We all worked together and look what we done!!

TTvTT

I'm soooo happy my Wii won't be missing out on NiGHTS - and now I won't ever have to because he's there all the time! Heck I'm gonna be playing the time trials just to get better and run laps with NiGHTS, then when I'm at my absolute best, I'll reset the scores and DO IT AGAIN. XDD

Everyone's said it, but it bears repeating - thank you so much for reaching out to the fans like this! Proof positive that you guys aren't just a faceless corporation, you love NiGHTS too~~~! <3

Lotta love around here now - and dang does it feel good. |3

Right then – first off… We didn’t forget NiGHTS!

Just since you’ve all been trying to make him out from that blurry capture from Youtube, I figured we better put a nicer shot out! Consider this an exclusive :)

Posted Image

We’ve given NiGHTS a very important role. He starts all the races, and also finishes them too! He also resides over Time Trial, whenever you set a new lap record, you’ll have NiGHTS flying along with you celebrating!

I have to admit the main reason he’s in was after we saw your heartfelt pleas, especially those of DiGi and TRiPPY, we had to make sure NiGHTS was in and played an important role. After all, we really didn’t want them to burn all their collection now. So whilst he’s not playable, he very much made it in, and as a result of the huge amount of support for the character that you all showed.

Does this mean that NiGHTS may not be in future DLC? Well who can say. That’s a question I can’t answer right now – it all depends on how well the game does :)

Anyway – cats out of the bag, so I figured we best make it official!

Now, I can look forward to yet more ‘Don’t forget Flagman!’ posts I’m sure :D

SOL, you magnificent awesome person!! NiGHTS is in the hizouss!! WOOT WOOT!!!! Oh yeah! By the way, two questions: If NiGHTS becomes a downloadable character, will others from his series be downloadable as well? And if that's the case, then can you have Jackle yell something totally random whenever he wins a race?

Everyone else describes my feeling on the subject, but better than I could ever put it. But I'll still say WOOHOOO!

Not only were we heard but the game companies-- That's treat enough-- But they publicly say we're the reason they added NiGHTS. Ladies and gents, this is a significant and rare event, that through direct fan effort something was changed/added to the game. Historic, really! Who knows, maybe this will open the flood gates to fan/developer communication and input? Or maybe I'm idealizing here. But in any case, DLC or not, NiGHTS was not forgotten and will be there at the start and end of every race! A big hand, everybody, for the ladies and gents that heard us and went to the trouble of putting our favorite flying jester into the game. Well done! Thanks everyone, and thanks S0L for telling us!

TSSZ is gonna find some way to try and ruin it, though. I know it.

have Jackle yell something totally random whenever he wins a race?

TOASTER STRUDEL!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Lol, OMG... I can't believe it! I have to admit that I hadn't been able to put the effort into campaigning as much as my fellow members, but I feel so much SATISFACTION simply because NiGHTS was put into the game he wasn't even PROGRAMMED TO BE IN!! S0L, you and your team absolutely rock for giving us a chance, and listening to us for input on our beloved maren. I don't have a 360 or a PS3, I just have a Wii, and getting the game wasn't in my plan (not because I don't want to play it, I just don't have the time; Full-time job and school), but I was showing my support for NiGHTS simply out of my love for him. (Albeit, minimal support!) And I know that this has been repeated OVER and OVER and OVER again but...

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR AT LEAST TAKING US INTO CONSIDERATION AND MAKING A POSTION FOR NiGHTS AND AT LEAST ADDING HIM AS A FLAGMAN!

EDIT: LOL, look at all the cute lil Chao, cheering on in the stands!

Good morning all. It's so nice to wake up to a world where around 90% of the news in regards to NiGHTS is of a positive tone.

This campaign really very nearly drove me over the edge. I was finding it very hard to keep going with it, mainly because of all the negativity being thrown around else where online and me not being able to say as much as i wanted to. It was tough going anywhere else online without someone else talking utter rubbish about this NiGHTS related scenario. But to wake up and type in 'sega NiGHTS' into Twitter's search engine and find loaaaads of places are linking to the news makes me smile. Seeing gaming website giants like Kotaku not only report on it in good form but furthermore not use the exclusive image that S0L gave us just makes me feel 6 months of crazy crap really was worth it all.

I'm hoping this good vibe runs through the net and SEGA see that people, not just NiGHTS fans, really will buy NiGHTS DLC. One thing i keep reading is people STILL can not believe he's not a playable character.

Lol, i can see why they might have thought NiGHTS into Dreams was on the Dreamcast, what with the whole 'dream' name surrounding it. Still, doesn't take them five minutes to run over to Wiki and check on the facts.

Its great that NiGHTS return in Sega Crossover Series. If I play the Time trial mode, then NiGHTS will fly with the racer celebrating. Right? I'll be more than happy to buy Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. And when that time comes, I'll definitely buy NiGHTS DLC first.

i was quite surprised to find NiGHTS being in the game possibly because of the campaign, although i cant help but feel that... maybe he was supposed to be there in the first place. to put him in that quick... the timing is to good.

as for the bet in general. either way would have been funny really. kinda funny...

not really true but the bet caused NiGHTS not to be in the game playable wise. maybe untrue but funny if it was. then id be like "DA**** Digi! U HAD TO MAKE SUCH A BET"

but at the same time. id have brought popcorn to the event of them burning their nights stuff. would have been funny XD

anyway. we'll have to see how things go from here
