Coming to PSN, Xbox LIVE Arcade, PC digital download.

Sega’s fan-favorite flying platformer NiGHTS into dreams… is making a high-definition return on PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PC digital download this fall.

Initially launched for Sega Saturn on July 5, 1996, NiGHTS into dreams… is regarded as one of Sega’s best created games in history. The new version will include high-definition graphics, a 16:9 aspect ratio, leaderboards, trophies / achievements, and an optional Saturn Mode, allowing players to experience the game with its original graphics.

“The Sega Saturn offered many unique gaming experiences, and NiGHTS into dreams… stands out as one of the most recognizable titles that found a home on the system,” said Chris Olson, Vice President of Digital Business at Sega. “We’ve gotten a lot of requests about this game over the years, and are very happy to be able to give both former Saturn owners and new players a chance to play it in its most beautiful form to date this fall.”

    Man, all this news hitting on the same day. Only way this day can get better is if there’s a new trailer or big announcement for Versus XIII or Last Guardian or something epic like that. :p

    How many of you actually played this back then? Just wondering.

    • Anime101210

      Me, me, me! It was my first (and favorite) Saturn game!

  • Miranda Lawson

    I think that I would rather buy this on Wii, it takes FOREVER to download complete games onto systems! What genre is this game? Just wondering.
