  • The curtain looks like a cape.
  • On either side there are three diamonds, which could be represent six hands.
  • A menacing ram's head.
Granted this is a just decorative gate, but it might give us a clue as to what he actually looks like in the game...Or could be totally unintentional.

That's what I thought at first, but now I think that that might be for show or etc.

Meh.... I hope it is, though 8D! In a way....

That's an interesting idea, I hadn't even noticed the resemblance to Wizeman. It also kind of looks like Reala's hat to me.

Looks more like Reala to me...I don't know, though.

I think it looks utterly fantastic- Wizeman or not. It's very archaic looking to me- which suggests wisdom with age.

Or I may be over analyzing it :)

It makes sense however that Wizeman looks different then he did before- he's a symbol, how people see the symbol varies from person to person. Not everyone is going to see him as a multi-antlered six handed cape-man.

If it is a hint to Reala I wonder if that means he's gonna have a cape?

I just took it as a bit of architecture, but it could be a reference to Wizeman, Reala, or some unknown figure.
It's an interesting idea.

It is an interesting look and I think the horns would be a great touch, but Wizeman's hands were his most prominent and distinguishing feature. Either they left the hands out to throw us off the scent or that's not Wizeman.

I wondered about that gate, but I didn't catch the crystals! Nice find. :3

Perhaps it's a hint of what's to come, perhaps not. Given that the level itself is a shade scarier than previous Nightmare designs, I'd imagine that if Wizeman's coming back, he's gonna pull out all the stops to defeat NiGHTS and the kids.

If he returns, think he's gonna look a bit more frightening than before? :P

He does have those three crystals on his neck in the original... having three on either side might just be the best way the design crew could figure to put them on the door.
But I'm tellin' ya... The Wizla's coming... XD

oooh it's pretty 83 maybe it was just to catch the attention of the old gamers and have them be like "... LOOKS LIKE WIZEMAN" or "REALA" but who knows. XD it's awesome anyway 83

Maybe it's not meant to look EXACTLY like anyone in particular. I mean, it could just be a symbol meant to make allusion to Wizeman or just Maren as a whole.

I like various anime shows, mostly shoujo and maho-shoujo. I also like reading books of fantasy-writers (Andre Norton, Phillip Pullman, Gart Nix etc). I like listening to rock or folk-rock music. I also love various pretty shiny things. I myself write and draw various fan things from time to time. And yes, I also love sleeping, dreaming and being lazy.
I agree as well. It might be some kind of reminding for old gamers, like: "Do not forget about Wizeman, he is still somewhere around there, even if he's not visible or sensible" (what I'm saying is that, well, such character as Wizeman could not dissapear once and for all)

Yes, that is also looks like Wizeman/Reala fusion ^_^ And Sairus made this fusion idea to look even better.

And if it's nothing like that... well, nice gate design then ^^'

Since Wizeman is pretty much the GOD of Nightmare/Nightopia, I'd say that the architecture would be built to please HIM, not Reala, who would only be second in command. So, I'd say it's just a dedication to old Wizey the Wicked.

I think that's unlikely. Somehow, with all the worries and doubts that I had and some I still have about this game, I doubt that they'll be that re-goddamn-diculous as to make Wizeman's twin brother. :lol: :lol: COMING FOR REVEEEENGE!! XD XD XD

Maybe tie it in with Illumina from Sonic Shuffle... or somesuch? XD You battle Wizeman and defeat him, releasing him from his evil bonds and he transforms into the just ruler of Nightopia, whilst simultaeniously changing genders.

Yes. There's a schedule that goes by the Wii internal clock. Never play JoD during that time period. EVAAAR.

Suppose it's a statue of Wizeman. Power-hungry tyrants are known for putting up statues in likeness of themselves, right?

Even if it weren't a redesign, it could still be symbolic of Wizeman. Cultures have been known to create imagery of iconic figures that look nothing like the real deal.

Or... maybe its a doorway! XD

Okay okay we get it. I should not be making sarcastic remarks about Wizeman, for I am setting a horrid example as a mod for going kind of off topic. Bad me. Bad.

Anyway yeah, doorway is good, I vote doorway. Doorway anyone? Just a doorway? XD

Maybe the Doorway is Wizeman! After being defeated in the first game, his power was so diminished that he was reduced to a giant hole in a wall.

Really though, I do actually think the door is supposed to be a symbol of Reala... he's been upgraded to ruler of Nightmare this time round hasn't he? His big pointy head is probably going to be plastered all over the game.
