NiGHTS Wii Revealed, First Screens

by Shawn White (2007-03-30)

Portugese magazine Maxi Consolas revealed the first screenshots and details for a new Wii-exclusive NiGHTS game.

Takashi Iizuka, a lead game designer for the original NiGHTS on SEGA Saturn, is helming development for the new title. Iizuka revealed that NiGHTS (the acrobatic flying jester) will return as the main character with a mix of old and new abilities. "NiGHTS will have a considerable number of acrobatic movements, many of them never seen before, for the player to perform easily using the Wii controller," he stated.

NiGHTS will once again explore the dreams of children eager for adventure, but Iizuka did not clearly specify if said children would be Claris Sinclair and Elliot Edwards from the original game, or a new cast.

In addition to a single-player mode, NiGHTS for Wii is also expected to include a two-player mode - Iizuka did not state whether that will be cooperate or competitive - and "special online functions."

SEGA is expected to make more details available in the coming weeks, so stay with The Wiire for the latest news regarding this long-awaited sequel.
