For those who didn't watch the announcement live at Summer of Sonic, I just want to say that they didn't forget NiGHTS.

Permission to freak out and do happy things twice in one week? Please don't be pulling my leg(s) here!

They showed a trailer on the display screen and everything. It's legit.

EDIT: Oh wow, they just showed the same trailer in the livestream. It turns out that a Nightopian is piloting NiGHTS and that bird rider from JoD is piloting Reala.

Alright, thanks to SegaBits on Twitter, they gave a link to the stream from Summer of Sonic
It's kind of shoddy quality, but the build-up to trailer starts at about 40 or so minutes in http://www.twitch.tv...how/b/323985629

Man, NiGHTS and Reala look silly as vehicles. I hope they'll get some more fluid animations or something as the game goes further into development.

Also, I really feel like it's not in Reala's nature at all to let someone ride him.

It's possible that NiGHTS and Reala's all-star moves will be them reverting to their normal forms to use the Drill Dash.

Personally, I would have Elliot or Claris pilot NiGHTS instead of a random Nightopian. Even Owl wouldn't be so bad. I don't know who would pilot Reala though.

I hope their All-Star moves are something along those lines. Also, yeah, second on that Claris or Elliot, thing, I guess they couldn't decide which of the four they wanted driving him, although I'd have been fine with the pair of Claris and Elliot, so they could like, fight over the wheel and stuff.

And duh, Roger would drive Reala. Their final smash (wrote that entirely by accident) All-Star move would be Roger's eyebrows growing to ridiculous sizes and devouring the other racers.

Maybe Sega is realizing that NiGHTS is their true star and Sonic needs to take a back seat.

Now they just need to start supporting Nintendo again, and I'll be content beyond all reason.

No no no, see. What WE have been given by SUMO is a very unique direction to take the characters in and make them stand out from the rest in this racing game full of other characters and amazing IP's.

---> THIS is silly

Also, not sure if Viperxmns noticed it or not but the Jet Fighter plane is what Reala morphs in to when he's in his airplane form! XD

I honestly could not be happier with how they've represented NiGHTS in this. It makes me want to throw money at the studio and ask them to make a new NiGHTS game, lol!

Wisey and Gillwing? I'm so in love.

The Pian's eyes really creep me out, though. They're just so...vacant. :S

Holy wow....that video....WOW!!!! That looks so beautiful and I want this game so bad now.

But yeah, it does kind of shock me with the Pian and not having any of the kids as driver choices.....but I don't even care I want this game! The levels! So amazing! I was really hoping for Soft Museum or Delight City but at the moment I seriously don't want anything but that game :D

I think part of it might be like this: Everyone else in the game is a character in a vehicle. NiGHTS and Reala however morph into vehicle forms. Now, part of it might be wanting to still kinda keep them consistent with all the other racers aesthetically. So therefore they need 'drivers' (even though NiGHTS and Reala are the ones you're controlling). So, then we have a need to make the 'driver' quotient even for both NiGHTS and Reala. What happens then is, how do you have an equal 'driver' for both of them. If NiGHTS has dreamer pilots, there's no equivalent for Reala. So instead, swap out kids for a Pian. Then you have the Maren side for Reala, hence Goodle.

It may also be that, for example my old idea of both kids piloting NiGHTS could have proven a bit unwieldy in the end, like the character model might have been too big to work with the rest of the roster. So they would have had to choose one kid. And unless they could make the game with selectable kids for NiGHTS, narrowing it down is kind of a pain compared to just going with the Pian plan.

Then again, there is Opa Opa.

WOW, it was one thing watching the reveal in the sub quality live stream, it's another seeing it in glorious clarity. That looks utterly amazing. And I finally got to see the Wizeman section.

Seriously SUMO, if you're reading this, just well done. Well done!

SumoRex also mentioned over at the Sonic Stadium that Puffy features in the track in her own area too. I don't see any rules about linking to other forums, but just in case I'll put the link in a spoiler (assuming that helps lol):

I'm not going to lie. At first I was a teeny tiny bit concerned with the fact that both marens had become vehicles but after that short millisecond of concern it all made absolutely perfect sense. The NiGHTS jet kind of reminds me of the A-10 and the Reala jet reminds of the F-18... I wonder how their car models will look. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't show those in the trailer but that's just another reason to wait for the game to come out. I feel I should also say the music is fantastic.

Finally got my computer to play the vid in higher quality than the first time I saw it and I just can't believe how awesome the levels look! So bouncy fresh, if that makes any sense. Also, I now realize that the music does indeed sound kinda dance-y mixed and I wasn't just imagining that the first time I heard it, I love it as well. Didn't know Puffy would get a cameo, I think I would have expected to see Jackle if any other bosses, but still the more the merrier.

With this and the HD release, I think my brother wanted to slap me over my uncontrollable squealing around the house. :lol:

But for real, I 'm so freaking happy. To be honest, I kind of thought NiGHTS would be in SART (could you imagine our shitstorm if NiGHTS was left out AGAIN?), but I never expected a NiGHTS track! Wahoo, Sumo! :D
