    From C&VG:

    " It looks like much-loved Sega fly-'em-up NiGHTS is coming to PS2 - and it's not a port of the new Wii game.

    According to the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, a port of the critically acclaimed Saturn original NiGHTS into Dreams will be released on PS2 in Japan this February.

    A sequel, NiGHTS Journey of Dreams, is currently on the way for Wii.

    Because of the slight hindrance of not being able to read Japanese, we haven't got the slightest clue what the PS2 version of into Dreams is all about, although going by the mag screens it looks like it's at least had a visual touch up.

    Will we be able to play it for hell on a DualShock, though?

    Sega's UK outfit offered a no comment when we picked up the blower, but hopefully it'll have lots of lovely things to tell us soon.

    Update: According to useful internet translators the PS2 version will be updated with polygon graphics and 16:9 modes. Mmmmm..."

    Oh good, I can finally give the original a try. I've been hoping for something like this for a while. [​IMG]

    It's almost worth buying an PS2 for [​IMG] I can't wait 'till it gets cheaper.

    It would be really nice if they'd also include it with Journey of Dreams... But they probably won't.

    ^^Give it time, it's Sega, and knowing them they'll shovel it over on Wii with the NiGHTS 2 controls slapped on once their new game starts showing a good decline in sales to help make a boost for both of them.

    Personally Im hoping for a Wii port later on.

    Could always find me a PS2 to salvage if I had to I guess.

    Its better than a Virtual Console port. Since a reprogramed version is obvoiusly the only option they can realisticly go for.

    Saturn was great, but it seems the code made specificly for it is too complex to just port everywhere.
    They did it with PC poprts though >.>

    I expect one or the other down the line, either a Wii port, or a Virtual Console release of the original.

    I doubt it's gonna get remade for the Wii. Maybe a virtual console release.

    Mm, well, the latest trend seems to be to port games from the PS2 to the Wii. Developers (mistakenly) seem to consider them on the same level. So it's not out of the question that they might port it over after it arrives on the PS2. [​IMG]
