it would be really weird to see nights 2 on other platforms after beeing excited since that Famitsu rumor.. but whatever.. i could easily see a 360 or Ps3 version.. those platform just sold better then the wii..
I firmly believe Sega's going to make a big official announcement on April 10. These mags weren't supposed to hit til after then, albeit soon after. There's no way Sega doesn't want to grab the Sonic crowd with this - it's too big a sack of money to leave on the table.
Well, Thats what I'm hoping! A big media blowout with screenies and movies and new official artwork. Awesome blossom. Extra awesome.
The "new" NiGHTS design... feels a bit western to me? The only reason I think this is the more flesh coloured face... and, can anyone make out from that singular image if the crystal shard is still embedded into NiGHTS' chest? Cause I just can't see it :-(
Alls I see is a weird neck-tie thing in its place :-S I can see the crystal shards on his collar though, either side... Wow, new NiGHTS stuff to ponder. Brilliant.
Im not going to get my hopes up cause Sega isnt really the same anymore...with the major Sonic mess ups and Phantasy Star Universe...im not so sure. And Naka aint involved at all here. Ill wait for more info and impressions.
Another somethin' somethin' to keep in mind is that Sonic games sell millions on brand name alone. NiGHTS wont, therefore they will HAVE to put more time and energy into NiGHTS as, financially speaking, they have an opportunity to create another money spinning franchise. A HUGE opportunity. It's a fact that SEGA will be aiming this game at more than just the original's fans, so it really does literally HAVE to be good in order to sell.
I'm quietly confident that the sequel would be of very good quality.
Yeah, it was. I tried for HOURSSSSSSS gettin all the ideya in the pinball table, expecting something brilliant for my toil. The result? 999 rings.... that you must of already had as it took about an hour on the table to freakin' get the damn ideyas!!! Grrr...
On wether or not its a system seller; obviously I think it will be to any massive NiGHTS fan, but as for other gamers, NiGHTS is as good as a new franchise, and so long as a new franchise is a good enough game it sure as hell CAN be a system seller. I'm looking mainly toward Gears and Halo as my main point of reference here but, hell, why not use Sonic the Hedgehog (Mega Drive game) as an example too?
If its as good a game as the original the yes, it will most certainly be a system seller, and if not, then it would be a tipping point game for most like, "hmm... well, the Wii has Mario Galaxy, Prime, NiGHTS and Wii Fitness... yeah, I reckon I WILL invest" kinda thing.
I think a lot of people will be let down by Nights 2 IF it is indeed done in the same way as the Saturn version. Most people I know did not get the concept of the game when playing it. Nights is about replaying stages until you know them by heart, it doesn't have that much content to keep you busy if you want new level after new level.
It would be amazing if they had a version of the original game included on the disc that was playable with the nunchuck analogue stick + wiimote, or the classic controller. I think this would stop lots of people from bitching, no-matter what the main game was like.
(I'd prefer it with improved graphics, but just running at all would be awesome).
Thats not true. The people who didn't like it in the first place simply wont like it still. The People who 'got' the fact it was a score attack game at heart would be delighted. Therefore no-one would be let down, just more people than should be legally allowed will think "nah, don't like it".
If, though, you mean that a tightly designed score attack game doesn't have a big enough audience in todays world... well.... discuss!! as it's a very valid point, and one which I personally now think about 24/7 and will only stop thinking about once NiiGHTS is released!
This is possibly the best news that I've read on these boards. NiGHTS was the only game I remember truly enjoying on the saturn (aside from Panzer Dragoon and Clockwork Knight). It was so atmospheric and awesome...
I really hope Sega doesn't screw this one up.
Also--has it actually been confirmed, or have people just been presuming that it's confirmed? I'm very confused about this now.
