And the whole involvement of NID.com and TRiPPY can only mean that not only is SEGA looking to their fans more recently (See Sonic CD / Taxman), but this could only turn out as great as Sonic CD did for us Sonic dedicates.

Sonic CD only worked because Taxman coded the entire game for them.

The PS2 port had no problems with the engine or the controls at all, like I said earlier. The only problems it had were low quality SFX (for some reason, even though they're crisp as can be on the actual disk), and a long loading time for the replay footage at the end of the levels. The PS2 remake had no real problems, and this enhanced port of it will probably fix the ones I mentioned. It's not a re-creation of the game like Sonic CD 2011 was.

It's gonna be fine.

The PS2 version is slightly different in some areas. I can't really explain but people who have time attacked both will know what I'm talking about.

Honestly the involvement of TRiPPY doesn't make me get the warm and fuzzies. IIRC she was in contact with SEGA over Journey of Dreams as well, and her fancomics, while beautiful, are not quite the spirit I would want to see in official NiGHTS games. Nothing against her, of course.

What I do hope to see on the other hand is the Christmas NiGHTS content in some way shape or form.

TRiPPY knew of JoD before it was officially announced only because of ArchAngelUK (Who also personally met her at her house). But other than that, no. She started working for SEGA a bit afterwards.

Fuck me, but I'll probably buy Christmas NiGHTS if it's DLC.

Also, I like that they're in touch with the NiGHTS fanbase. Sega is giving a shit about their ports. It's wonderful! I want them to stay alive so they can keep on rolling with this beautiful bean footage

I'll be buying this for the same reason I buy things like Ristar on steam: Vain hope that they'll make more in the series. I actually own original copies of both those games.

Can't wait.

I'd play it once just to see how it plays.
Not nearly as well as the proper version, I suspect: http://nidscores.com/?page_id=439
Saying it plays badly is maybe a bit harsh, and I should say that I can't comment personally, but there are clearly numerous differences, some of which can affect gameplay to a significant degree depending on how meticulous the player is. Those on nidscores.com clearly know what they're on about, so it's probably best not to state out of nowhere that everything is OK.

Anyway, hopefully things like that will be resolved by the involvement of TRiPPY et al. And ultimately (which isn't to say that I want to settle for something sub-par), new and less technical players will have a new chance to play this, and it'll get something more akin to the graphics it always deserved - both of which are good things.

My only exposure to NiGHTS was through the Wii version. That and Twilight Princess were the only games I refused to sell when I was selling a ton for extra cash. They're still the only two Wii games I own. Point is I really liked it, so I'll be interested in playing this.

But will it have the Christmas version? :v:

Nothing has been said so far, so it'll either be absent altogether or released later as DLC, I'm guessing. If it is released, hopefully it won't be missing a bunch of things like the PS2's version was, for some reason.

I'd be very surprised if it doesn't show up in some form. The original practically WAS DLC in terms of what it did to the original game (changed one level (?)), albeit running on it's own disc.

To be precise, it added a new layout for Spring Valley 1, for Elliot (given that Spring Valley in vanilla NiGHTS was a Claris stage) -- and a mighty FINE layout it is, too. Great for continuous links in course 1.

I'm calling it, DLC available in December. :v:

I can't imagine they'd resist pre-made DLC. That's just money on the table waiting for them, and it's already themed for the most profitable season for games.

You could also change the Nightopians moods in NiGHTS Into Dreams though Christmas NiGHTS (As well as listen to the changed music because of it right then and there). Also Sonic. :v:
