It’s Official. NiGHTs Wii is a reality.

Famitsu announced today that the ever fabled rumor of NiGHTs 2 on the Wii is now…well…a reality. The newest title, now called NiGHTs: Journey of Dreams, will be released this winter for the Wii and will be handled by Sonic Team without Yuji Naka. Instead, Takashi Izuka will helm the new project and promise loving fans of the original NiGHTs a new experience that will help them further remember the glory that was the original NiGHTs Into Dreams.


Those of you who were early adopters of the Nintendo Wii now have one killer app to justify your purchase. Now all you really need to do is play the waiting game. Thank you, Sonic Team, for making this rumor a truth. Thank you, Izuka-san for believing in the game and the love many gamers who played the original have for the game.

Now I need to go find a Wii.

    I think that right now, we’re all praying so that they don’t #$%& it up, especially since they be using the Sonic & TSR controls.

    The Euro mags were right! Egg on faces for those who didn’t believe, lol!

    Can’t wait to learn more about it! ^_^

    That’s great that it’s cfm’ed. Yes, just pray that they wouldn’t mess it up, my Wii is waiting.

    That certainly explains why Naka left Sonic Team and formed his own company, Prope. I could imagine he was egged on by Sega to create a new NiGHTS game for the Wii, and not wanting to take part in this endeavor, dropped out (recently stating his main reason for leaving was to develop original IP’s and not continue churning out consistent sequels).

    Hopefully his absence in this project won’t be enough to hamper the quality of the product. I’m not even looking for a new experience with this future installment of NiGHTS. Just keep it faithful to the original, and there’s no way it can go wrong.

  • Me: ……NiGHTS for wii?…….
    Count down: 3…2…1…
