When I scored my Sega Saturn so many years ago, three games occupied the system’s optical drive more than any other in the catalog: Virtua Fighter, Daytona USA (Let’s Go Away!) and NiGHTS into Dreams.
NiGHTS into Dreams was a bizarre, surreal title that took a little getting used to upon the first boot up. However, once you mastered the controls and got into the odd premise of the game, it became a vivid, graphically strong wonder. Weird? Absolutely; but, charming at the same time.
One has to wonder, though, exactly how well all of the classic nostalgia will hold up in the face of old mechanics. This game was launched originally on the Sega Saturn back in 1996. Will all those years add up to a little gameplay misfortune? Or will this classic stay true to its original form?
NiGHTS into Dreams does not have a launch date yet. It will release on the XBLA, PSN and Steam marketplaces.
