Hmm. I'm surprised no one has made this topic yet. (If they have, I haven't found it.)
Am curious to see how many people think what.

I'm firmly in the LOL WTF category myself. :<

I'm still mixed about the new design but my mind could change once I see some more screenshots of Reala. I don't mind the mask just as long as it's a seperate item and he can take it off. The hat seems a little short but, as I said in another topic, that could be due to the angle Reala's nodding his head. The black stripes on his hat could have been faded away in the video due to the lighting in the background. I still miss the yellow claws and the blue and red gems on his outfit.

You know what? Looks a hell of a lot better than the old design, and now, Reala is no longer a shade diffrence from NiGHTS. I think they could differientiate them more, someone actually called Reala "Dark NiGHTS" on gonintendo.com

YES! Glad someone sees it my way. I laugh so hard looking at him now. He isn't scary anymore, especially because of the mask. Oh Sega....what has become of you. What ideas are floating around your head?!

On the bright side, the samurai armor on Reala's waist will look really cool when he drill dashes.

I'm liking his upgrade a lot, particularly the armour additions; makes him have more of a warrior feel to him. Though the samurai connotations it brings up are an interesting mix - like he's sort of taken a mixture of all these different warriors from all these different dreams. And added feathers.

Ah for my opinion...
Could they have made him look anymore like a drag queen?
He isn't scary anymore...
He looks like a god awful sexually confused being now.
What happened to his bad assed look?
(I'm starting not like the new game at all... too much changes and conflicts.)

Beyond the ruff thingie it's what I expected (oh and the gem) and I actually do like it. Could be better but I much prefer it over his previous design =D

Although, EVERYONE in this game seems to have BLUE EYES. WHY. XD

Arr...
because they are feeling prejudicious...
(This could be a "Look who's talking statement" because I nearly have blue eyes myself.)
Also take note of the blond hair and the more Brittish sounding accents.
Not saying thats a bad it just appears be that they are tying to appeal to one group of people (Brittish) rather than the world.
They will be stunting their sales with America this way... (More because of Stereotyping)

Hm.. well.. it'll take getting used to for me. There are some things about it I like and some things I don't like. I think it mixes too many different elements. It makes it unique, but it also make it silly. Some outfits can pull it off, but this one doesn't quite make it for me.

I like those samurai bits, with the carved, jagged patterns, but mixing it with a clown collar, for example, just kind of throws me for a loop. I like how it looks like he's got a short vest with a black undershirt with the belt, that all looks pretty awesome to me. But, like I said, I'm sure I'll get used to it, or at least get over it. I'm glad they didn't change his overall figure; he's still muscular and distinctively male, however he looks more graceful than he used to.

Also, AYRiES, *shrug* Reala always had blue eyes.

I don't like the new design for him. He looks just like he ran away from masquerade. WTF? Does nightmaren need to hide his face, even if partly? I thought nightmarens are there to evoke NIGHTMARES ^_^ And overall, why all the nightmarens have something golden on? (this is what I memorized the best from the trailer) ^_^

at least they didn't give REALA or NiGHTS huge big anime breasts like they seem to do a lot nowadays. that would have been awful.

Again, I don't think the mask is a part of his design. It has to be a persona mask if anything. I speculate it could be used to revive or take on the form of Wizeman as seen in the trailer. Either that or Jof's assumption that Mr. Owl is Reala using the persona mask to deceive Helen and William. One of the two would be awesome.

I love it! The desig is perfect to Reala and I hope the creators show Reala in the game many times. I wonder what is that thing in front of Reala's face? :(

That's what I've been thinking about it. =3 Since the mask has the feathers and all.

Plus if you look at the owl, you will see a crystal he is wearing resembling Reala's.

Just wait! During the boss battle Reala will pull out a ridiculously large sword and proceed to hack away at NiGHTS' limbs! It will be like every crazy anime fight scene that involves any type of sword all rolled into one! :P

Oh man. XD That owl HAS to be Reala! He's helping us to deceive us! Maybe this has something to do about Will looking at Wizeman as a father-figure? I guess Reala tricks him or something...Coooool... :o

I still want to know why Reowl(my new name for that guy, ree-owl) has those tiny shades, though. XD

Yeah. He'll be holding it, and it will start charging up and glowing, and he'll scream something in Japanese and NiGHTS gets sliced in half.

*lol* I couldn't have said it better myself. XD

I think it's a great change. Armor suits him well, I think. The feathers are a bit out there, but they're not so bad. I look forward to seeing more of him in future screen shots and in game.

The owl thing: Now THAT'S just weird. XD I'll keep my eyes open.

I like both the original and the new designs. I try to not see it as 'replacing' Reala, just being a new outfit. That and i love feathers, frills and overkill detail.


... still he's a bit too Red, he's supposed to be stripey dammit. I'm hoping it -IS- just a lighting thing.





In other news that owl is a cross between Agent Smith, Mr Macky from southpark and Reala.

GIANT HEAD. I think it's the small eyes that throw me off.

I agree, red and black stripes[Checkers in his stage's case] are Reala's trademark! And yes, Reowl's eyes are SCARY. D=

Plus, people need to also remember that just because it's not big, twistedly huge, or not human looking doesn't mean that it's not scary. You could also look at it that the mask represents that he's unknown. And most of the time the unknown is what people fear the most.

Symbolism, peoples. Symbolism. :3

I have to agree with LD there. Many people fear what they don't know or understand.
