Exactly 16 years to the day after the release of the original “flying platformer,” SEGA announces that NiGHTS into dreams… is heading to the PC. 360, and PS3 as a downloadable release.
The Saturn-era classic is coming to XBLA, PSN, and PC downloadable services with both HD-rejiggered graphics as well as a “Saturn Mode” to let you check out the game in its original, SD glory.
The original was a jewel in the Saturn’s briefly-worn crown (that’s a saying, right), and there’s always been some kind of clamor for a remake or sequel. Unfortunately, the Wii return to the fantasy land of Nightopia wasn’t especially well-received. So it looks like SEGA is going back to original to give fans what they want.
The release will include the usual host of trophy/achievement support and leaderboards. No word on pricing or a release date.
