Looks great, but I'm not to keen on the behind-the-back camera angle. Gameplay looks a little slow too, but that could all be just for trailer purposes.

But NIGHTMARE LOOKS INCREDIBLE. :)

Damn. Not loading. I'm in a real pickle here. The best time I would be able to watch is tomorrow, but E3 and midnight showing of a movie is tomorrow. XP.

I think for what they tried to accomplish of true 3d flight, they pretty much nailed the camera angle as close as possible so that it could still work like the old game. You can still accurately place your paralooping and dashing and thats whats really important.

I'm still completely and utterly flabbergasted, words can't describe how happy I am.. heavens above, I first saw this like twenty minutes ago and I'm STILL choked up! XD At long last, my brain has fully accepted that NiGHTS is coming back... eleven years of dreaming, and BAM, it's coming to life!

I'm such a freaking mess.. how'm I gonna explain this to my folks? They're gonna look at me and ask who died! LOL

It's looking fantastic so far, I just hope I don't have to hear that 'aaaaaaaaaah eyaah!' from the boss every single time NiGHTS throws it.

Not to shatter the emotional reception already, but I thought I'd be first to jump the gun and point out a few things. Number one of my list being: No 'Pians? It could be a bit quick to judge, but from this, it would seem that there is no A-Life system. If that's so, it could be a huge let down for me and, I'm sure, a lot of the other fans.

Secondly, is it me or does that level not seem to hold as much character as the older ones? I mean, look at anything from Spring Valley to Mystic Forest in the original and you'll always feel a sense of refined and individual personality for each level. This little preview seems to be going on the safe side instead of trying something genuinely new and unique. And for other reasons the level just doesn't feel as magical as the old ones, but I just can't place it. I'm sure once some music is added I'll truly get that NiGHTS feeling, though.

Well, I'll remain hopeful for the A-Life system, but if it isn't there I will probably cry. 'Pians brought so much to the game for me, and I can't think of NiGHTS without them.

at this point, sound effects really dont matter.
They nailed the gameplay. They nailed the visuals. they nailed that "feel" at least in the videos. I really cant wait to get my hands on this game.

It sounds as though some people have only seen the trailer. The same web site has a video of the actual gameplay, and it has the same to NiGHTS's side view (just at an angle) as the original. Another thing: about the no Pians thing, this is obviously a beta! There is no music, no timer, no "Links", so much is missing! Therefore Pians can't be over rulled. And it has already been stated that the Pians are returining, so there :D j/k so you know!

it depends on if they have the itme to implement it I think. but also keep in mind this footage matches the screenshots we saw back in April. MEaning that this stuff wasnt made that long afterwards, and the game is likely even further progressed now behind the scenes.
But they had to show something.

Is it just me or...

- is there more room to fly around? I mean, spacious-wise, there's WAY more room to maneuver in the levels! My flight-loving-fangirl is most pleased.. :D
- does the "Puffle" boss arena move vertically? And along the spine of what remains of a nasty looking maren? Nightmare's looking REALLY nightmarish now!
- does Puffle say "Jof!" whenever NiGHTS grabs it? >:D IT KNOWS WHO YOU A~~~RE.
- does NiGHTS kick his feet every so often in mid-flight? CYOOOOOOOTE!
- is there a flourishing green forest level design-painting during the trailer? Beautiful!!

As for lack of Pians, I wouldn't worry for the same reasons as Innotech and shadow. There's way more for Sega to do yet, this is just the beginning! We're in for a heckuvva ride dreamers! WOOOO!

EDIT: I'm just adding stuff as I watch this thing over and over... :D

I noticed the more room to fly thing too, but I couldn't think of the words to explain it in less than ten lines.

Iizuka knows the importance of links. Hes mostl ikely working on that aspect as we speak. I think this is really just a video to show that the game works as a concept to help fans rest easy. They havent implemented a lot of things that everyone knows will be in the game. Hell we havent even seen the weather changing part of it yet. there will be al ot more to come in the next couple months I have a feeling. But what were seeimng now is VERY encouraging.

It does seem a little bland without the music added, but it leaves us something to look forward to.

I actually like this new way of capturing ideya. Its different from the original yet similar in scope. It doesnt disrupt the gameplay and becomes a new challenge.

Agreed. I'm glad they could achieve the same thing practically without resorting to the same thing story-wise.

Still, I notice a lot of things missing in this footage. The countdown timer, for example. The dash gauge and the point counter are also missing. I wonder how many of these will be intact, changed, or taken out in the final product. Furthermore, I'm curious to see if there will be any new gauges or counters onscreen. Hopefully not, but you never know.

From what I can tell. NiGHTS received a key from the first minion, then delivered it to the cage he was in. The next time the cage is seen, it has been raised and NiGHTS is chasing another bird for another key. I'm guessing the lack of A-life/blue chip usage/dash guage/ideya capture/points means that the particular play was more of a training mission. Possibly a story element where NiGHTS will be set free afterwards to continue through the main game. I'm also open to the possibility that pians will be featured in the story and possibly have benifits like the soul guage from SatSR.

More likely the things that are truely missing are because this is rather incomplete and is just something to show the fans that the game is coming along, like most early footage from games are.

Yah, its missing a lot, like you people said, but its probably a BETA shot taken a while ago. You know Sega likes to keep fans on pins and needles.



Now, that cage thing... is it now CONFIRMED thats the Ideya Palace? Because at one point in here, when NiGHTS flys into it, you heard the original 'Ideya Replaced' tune from the original game.

I think it's the exact opposite, Kyra :3.

It looks like this is more of a 'Key Palace', because NiGHTS is carrying keys back to the place, not Ideya :3.

Well, that's really up to Iizuka if he wants NiGHTS to make a comeback. :)
I'm sure he won't screw up this oppurtunity, though. If he did, it would mean another 11 years, and I don't think he's that dumb.

I would have to bet that they have already seen this footage before somehow. they probably were keeping this from us.

Oh my goodness! This gameplay looks AMAZING! I cannot wait to get it! Though I’m alittle curious about acouple things. Like: Where is the Ideya and what’s with that green key?

But other than that everything is amazing! I love the nightmare stage! Though it’s boss sounded weird.
