I just happened to stroll back to the site at 5pm and saw the post a few seconds after it went up. My whole brain just sort of stopped and hasn't quite turned on again yet.

Good times :D

My whole body is vibrating. Gotta calm down. Wow... This is just too good. And SEGA, if you're checking out the site right now take a peak at the achievement thread. It might give you some help if you run out of achievement/trophy ideas.

Huh. I thought they did this a while ago, something meant to be released alongside JoD? I suppose that doesn't matter now, it's coming for the PC and I finally have the means to play it without using an emulator~

You're probably thinking about the Japan-only PS2 version.

Whoa crazy news indeed, I thought for sure it was just a racing track. It nice it lets you switch to original Saturn Mode so I can play 1080p nostalgia graphics on my 50", I mean who else does that when porting today?
And my ps3 blu ray is broken so thank god its a PSN download.

Hopefully they include a online features like a leaderboard or something
Edit: Nevermind it does

I, for one, approve of our new digital focused SEGA overlords.

Seriously though. GOD YES. YES YES YES YES YES.

I am so frigging psyched it's unreal. Where once people had to hunt out a Saturn and copy of the game, now NiGHTS can be enjoyed by MILLIONS at the touch of a button. NiGHTS is perfectly suited to the XBLA/PSN environment, and I just know it's going to do well, especially off the back of Jet Set Radio launching summer too.

If SEGA can keep up this digital revival, I'm sure things will work out for them in the long run.

But for now, glorious NiGHTS int Dreams HD. Community, this was down to you. I can't thank you enough.

This is the best thing. Now sega needs to take the next step and make a collector's edition. I'd buy it. Heck, I'd pre-order it.

I finally managed to get my copy of the remake to work smoothly and this happens. :wacko:

Oh well, I suppose I'm pretty glad anyways. I'm really excited that it's being released on the PC as well! Hopefully someone will take a look into hacking it, though at the least it'd be neat to take a look at the files. ^_^

This is wonderful! I already own the original for the Sega Saturn, but I'm totally going to get this for PC to support sales. Maybe if it sells enough they'll make a 3rd NiGHTS game.

I've been lurking this site for a while. I love the editorials and goodies that show up on the main site. But with this huge news, I just had to create an account to say THANK YOU to Trippy and everyone else who made this happen.

The story behind you working for SEGA and how fans made this happen is actually very inspiring. NiGHTS has a whole new meaning for me now. Thanks. :)

i can only share of this amazing enthusiasm.

particularly since i'm going through some important times its like NiGHTS showed up, winked at me and said "Hey, i'm still here! dont worry, i'll help you get through ;)"

someone above mentioned leaderboard?
oh man, cant wait!

Is this a port of the PS2 version or is it it's own thing? It appears to have a lot in common: graphics, Saturn mode...

Based on what I'm seeing with graphical comparisons, it's hard to say. Aside from the 16:9 aspect ratio, the HD screenshots thus far look a fair bit better than the PS2 port graphics.

I was thinking to myself that it looks to be a port of the PS2 version what with all the similarities, the kids lanky arms being the most noticeable to me, but either way this is amazing and I am so psyched to play it!

My guess is that they're using models and assets from the PS2 verison, but will be tweaking it for current-gen consoles.

As far as I know, Sega is keeping its lips tight about Christmas NiGHTS content. Take that as possible confirmation if you will.

Speaking of Christmas NiGHTS, I was playing Sonic into Dreams when I had an idea that may or may not have been inspired from Sonic Robo Blast 2. What if, instead of having Sonic just run around the level, have him go Super when he goes inside of the Ideya Palace, allowing him to fly around like NiGHTS. Also, have Metal Sonic replace Reala for Sonic's version of the boss fight, similar to how Santa Eggman replaces Puffy. The character models from Sonic Generations could be used, but they might have to be watered down a little since this is a download game.

I hope this comes to the WiiU. Normally, I'm not the kind of dip who buys the same game twice, but I will be getting this on XBLA when it comes out, then again for WiiU if that's a thing. I lurve you, NiGHTS.

Also, with both NiGHTS and Reala playable in Transformed, I guess I'll have to buy that, too. SEGA, you'se bleedin' me dry.

This is so awesome. First NiGHTS returns in the modern console such as Xbox Live and PSN. Then she made it in the sequel to Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. Sweet and wonderful.

WOW! Amazing news to FINALLY hear!

Congrats guys!

However, I do believe this 'HD remake" is merely the PS2 version ported. It looks pretty much the exact same textures as the PS2 version.

As for HD, anything can really be HD quality. I've played NiD PS2 on my crazy powerful laptop in HD quality, so it's not exactly hard to make and HD version. Simply put, the PS2 was just limiting its ouput. Now, if they replaced the textures/sounds or added filters, then yes, it is more than a port.

Also, considering I played the emulated PS2 rom on a moderately fast computer a few years ago with HD settings, the PC requirements shouldn't bee too intense -if it's ported correctly-.

Anyways, just my thoughts/input. ^_^

I do hope they add achievements plus the versus option they removed in the PS2 version.

It would be odd if they didn't include achievements, seeing as the code base will need to have them for the PS3 and Xbox versions anyway.

Well Think about it. For some reason the PS2 was far from perfect when compared to the Saturn. For one, Gilwing cannot be paralooped correctly. When you stop flying on Saturn like let go of the stick Nights slowly stops his glide, while on the PS2 he seems to almost hit a wall. The camera on Puffy was a little jacked up when you flew in front or when you spun around her, making aiming a little nightmare of its own...no pun intended. There's a few other things I cant recall right now. Those can not be fixed because PS2 games cannot be updated. Here we have a HD remake which hopefully will have those issues fixed and even if there not, updates can be made. so....its groovy! OH! one more thing, not all of us can import Japanese games. This gives it to everyone without the importing misadventures.

I have an idea. Now that we have NiGHTS running on a system that's capable, I'd love the option to increase the draw distance so the entire map is visible. It'd be an option, and not default, of course.

I wonder if that is practical though as it would make it very obvious just how tiny the levels really are.

I suspect things like that will get hacked into the PC version regardless though, its one reason I fear I may end up buying this game on every platform.

I really hope they have a map creator. I'm not sure how exactly it would work, as the levels are somewhat complex in their composition, but it would most likely extend the "lifespan" of the game, and get more people fired up about it (steam workshop, anyone?).
