Talk about the game in here.

Doesn't have to be NiGHTS related.

- and can I just add that I've not actually played the game myself yet! (Even though it was playable at SoS... LOL). So a lot of the details are still a surprise to me also. I can't answer any questions (obviously) but trust me I'm sharing the excitement >w<

Can anyone tell if NiGHTS and Reala become wheeled vehicles on the ground? I think all we ever saw was the plane and boat.

Also, it kinda sucks that they're pretty much reskins of one another. Let's hope SUMO makes them plenty different in terms of gameplay.

They're anything BUT reskins, trust me. I'm not sure if you guys just couldn't see a clear video of it or not but their models are completely different.

NiGHTS' airplane form seems to resemble that of a Private Jet while Reala's is a Fighter Plane.
The boat forms, NiGHTS and Reala are both transformed in to two different shapes of speedboats, NiGHTS looking more smoother around the edges (like that of a hovercraft-speedboat hybrid) while Reala resembles a sharper edge looking water vessel.

As for ground modes, of course they would need to have those too otherwise how else would they race on the ground? lol, these weren't shown however. Only the air and water modes were present at the reveal.

NOW, aside from NiGHTS, who else are you guys hoping to see make an appearance in this new AllStars Racing?
Let's hear some of your suggestions!

Axel and Blaze from Streets of Rage in a patrol car. The all-stars move would be Adam popping up to use a rocket launcher on the competition.

Also, why does Reala still have that silly willy mask on? Let us see your beautiful face!

Seeing that NiGHTS and Panzer Dragoon have representation (I hope PD has a racer), my most significant desires have been fulfilled. It would be neat to see some Phantasy Star or Shining Force, but I can't think of a good way to fit that in. ToeJam & Earl would be fantastic, but I think Sega can't get the rights or something.

INSANE POTENTIAL RACERS:
Mars from Shining Wisdom in the "Toydona" car
Seaman in a fish tank with wheels
Trellia from Ecco: The Tides of Time just flying around
Vectorman transforming into different vehicles
Clockwork Knight dude on his little horse

Or they could get SUPER obscure and include Tempo and the little car thing he's shown driving. Because all the kids love 32X, right?

Haven't actually gotten to see any of the game but, vehicles or not, I am loving that NiGHTS is in it! I think I am actually convinced, for once, that I really want to buy a racing game right when it comes out- or when I can afford it.

As for who else I'd love to see in it? I'm gonna go with Ristar, now there's another Sega oldie that's been neglected for too long in my opinion.


Quick edit mostly because I just re-read and remembered this:

INSANE POTENTIAL RACERS:

Clockwork Knight dude on his little horse

^Wow, insane amounts of weird lost nostalgia and now I kinda feel like I need to see exactly this game/character again, even in SART. :o

Still hoping for Ristar over here, and now I'm totally expecting Vectorman to be a vehicle as well if he's in

And really, I'd agree.. I guess Sumo's still using the JoD models for familiarity, or maybe they just like those designs' adaptability for vehicles.. but I kind wish Reala would stop being defined by the Persona mask. His face is cool, and we never get to see it anymore (in new games).

@DiGi

Thanks for layin' that out for me, man. I couldn't tell since the video I saw was pretty grainy and fast. I'm pretty pumped about this, now.

As for other characters, I'd like to see Metal Sonic, but I'm pretty sure he's back since his stage is. Other than that, uh, Seaman?

Speaking of which, where's Seaman 3DS?

I have to admit, watching a Seaman drive a little fish tank on wheels would be pretty funny! Personally, I'd be psyched if they include more Jet Grind Radio, Panzer Dragoon, or Shenmue.

So, what do you think NiGHTS and Reala's All-Star moves will be? I imagine NiGHTS will probably have either just the Drill Dash or maybe the Rocket Persona, although the Dragon would be equally useful as a way to overpower other racers. Reala's the real mystery, though, providing they don't just give him a copy of NiGHTS the way Shadow (bleugh) has of Sonic, with slight differences in effect. I think a cool one would be calling a horde of other Nightmaren and blowing through other racers like bags of leaves. As a bonus, Jackle could get a cameo and a redesign for the attack.

I had a couple All Star ideas, barring Paralooping because I dunno if the game supports an in-play character swooping around in a horizontal circle....

Triple Dash Burst for NiGHTS- Claris, Elliot and NiGHTS dash around the track, knocking everyone out

Mare Balloon Toss for Reala- Throws out a massive Mare Balloon which flies down the track, knocking racers out

I was thinking the same thing with the "Mare Balloon Toss" thing for Reala, kinda like in JoD except of course he'd probably use canons or something since he is the vehicle. If not that, maybe it would be more of a speed boost type of move that knocks anyone he touches back a few paces, definitely not as cool as the nod to JoD idea though I think.

I was thinking maybe he reverts to his normal self to launch the balloon (Goodle hops away for a moment), then goes back to vehicle mode

(from what we've heard from Sumo I think NiGHTS and Reala start every race as themselves and then morph)

I like the idea of them starting as themselves, hadn't heard that detail but I definitely would love that. It does make the most sense that he'd transform for his special move, I totally forgot about that aspect of the game, which seriously does fit NiGHTS and Reala I've just realized. I really can't wait to play the game to get the full effect of going from a car, to a plane, to all kinds of whatever and wherever this game goes.

I've been playing a lot of this game lately and I can assure you that it is as ADDICTIVE AS HELL and incredibly satisfying to control/play. The amount of fanserice detail crammed into it makes me cry happy tears. I'm so proud NiGHTS is a part of this amazing game :)

Slight downside that they had to re-tool the All Star moves this time, like instead of Super Sonic Sonic will just go into flight mode with a speed boost and shield, it seems.. so I guess we'd have to expect a similar thing for NiGHTS and Reala, but this was the caveat in order to make them functional online and such..

The Sumo guys gave some reasons as to why Ristar isn't playable, which mostly point to his character design being unwieldy.

Otherwise he's said to be riding a hovercraft that looks like the Saturn-like piece of the title screen from Ristar's original game. In the new Danica Patrick trailer there is a split second where a vague shape resembling a flag waving hovering character is visible.

I'm actually rather interested in this game. Too bad I'd have to get the 3DS version (or maybe not so bad, as there's no announcer), as getting a Wii U seems unlikely.
From what I've seen, Sega isn't too keen on telling us much about the unlockable characters, including NiGHTS and Reala. At least I don't think they'd be version exclusives. That would be too cruel.

A quarter of those characters should have been in it to start just by merit of being in the first game. Even more should have been givens. And what the crap is with these petition options? No Panzer Dragoon racer? No Virtual On? And why is Miku a choice? Vocaloid isn't even a Sega property! Man, screw this petition.

Up to you guys to choose if you want too cooperate or not - Still if I may say so, the petition is working tremendously well. It was also promoted on TSSZ news/ Sonic Retro / Sonic Stadium and on a couple of channels on Youtube.
That said, cooperate only if you deem its worthy, but for what it means- itís already a success. 4chan is also involved and says that DLC at this stage is already a given, I mean, look at how well Sagata is right now:

http://www.change.or...ing-transformed

At this pace he will no doubly reach more then 3k votes (when 1k votes was re required to qualify), it is also pretty sweet seeing so much fan support! The word is spreading fast and so are the fans cooperating.

- feverishly acquires 60 stars to battle NiGHTS
- beats NiGHTS after a bunch of losing
- you need 80 stars to unlock NiGHTS


WHY OH WHY, YOU CRUEL BASTARDS

Also, how come you race him in the After Burner track and not Dream Valley? Found that amusing.
