Sega have announced release dates for their upcoming HD re-releases of NiGHTS into Dreams and Sonic Adventure 2. Both games, they say, will be available this October.


On the PlayStation Network, both NiGHTS and Sonic Adventure 2 will be available on October 2nd for $9.99 USD. On Xbox Live Arcade, they’ll be available October 5th for 800 Microsoft Points.


In the case of NiGHTS, Sega are including the game’s Christmas NiGHTS expansion, which was previously only available through special promotions back when it was released for the Sega Saturn in 1996.


For Sonic Adventure 2, Sega are prepping DLC. Battle Mode DLC will be released for the game for an additional $3.00 / 240 Microsoft Points, and will contain more maps and characters from the GameCube version of the game, including the Chao Karate mode.

    I’m so getting SA2HD. Too bad they are not including the extra Battle content from the start, I’m not that interested so I’ll leave it be.

    Wasn’t Christmas Nights more of a Xmas-themed demo rather than an expansion? I remember it seemed to only have the first level from the full game, of course with a holiday paint, but still it was just the first level. Did it have something else?

    • Zonic505

      There was some additional stuff like unlockable artwork, the ability to play as Sonic, & more.…#Christmas_Nights 

      • AnimeRemix

        I just checked it out on Youtube, now I want to buy this game even more. I can play as Sonic?! YES!!!! And they have a remix of a Sonic CD song from the JP soundtrack! =D

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Oh snaps! Nights!!

  • Zonic505

    On the same day in 2 weeks?! Awesome to hear it won’t be too much longer. Thankfully, some Jet Set Radio this week shall make the wait easier.

  • MrRobbyM

    SA2HD is an instant buy for me. It was basically my childhood and it remains as one of my favorite games.

  • Anime10121

    Welp, Sega has 20 bucks from me on the 2nd!  I just hate that they are pulling the same crap they pulled with Adventure by releasing the extras as DLC!  Oh well, Sonic Adventure 2 was my favorite 3D Sonic game before Generations, so I’ll  gladly get it, and Nights into Dreams is an insta-classic, that EVERYONE should try out!

  • Can someone tell me the difference between Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, cause I only played the latter one.

    • MrRobbyM

      Well Battle, as you know has a two player mode where you face off each other in different challenges and the Chao Garden has a few minor changes from vanilla SA2 if I recall correctly. Those are the only differences I think.

      • Alright thanks! Definitely going to pick this up.

    • Kaihedgie

       The 2P battle mode has the unlockable characters from the original version already unlocked, but Big gets replaced by a generic Dark Chao. The main characters also get an extra costume in 2P mode that allows them to use the same attack each time they get a certain amount of rings, or in the case of the Shooting Stages, changes the way they play. There was also compatibility with the GB Advance for Chao to get some extra goodies

  • NiGHTS into Dreams was a substantial part of my childhood. I used to play it all the time, along with Banjo-Kazooie. :D

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Sonic Adventure 2 I’ll stick to the Gamecube >P

  • DesmaX

    … Are these coming to Steam too?

    I’ll definely going to pick up Sonic Adventures 2

    • Never

      It will, the ESRB gave it a PC listing.

  • Ace

    Hopefully these two games get a PC release. I think it’ll happen sooner rather than later.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Sega….. Take all my RING!!!!

    • Testsubject909

      It’s a good thing you’re not married or have a fiancee, otherwise this would get all kinds of awkward.

    • RING you say?

  • Sonic Adventure 2 is one of the few games I will re-buy for the sake of nostalgia. Can’t wait!

  • sonic adventure 2, one of my most favorite games in the universe!!! yay!!!

  • yes, can’t wait, like sa2 much much much better than sa1 and also nights is a good game too

  • Shadowman

    You will get my rings sega just you wait and see.

  • Kaihedgie

    No thanks. I’ll stick with SA2B for the Gamecube :U

    • AnimeRemix

      I’ll be doing the same, but I’ll be sticking to SA2 on Dreamcast and Gamecube. :V

  • Xekyo

    Sonic Adventure 2 was one of my all time favorite games growing up.  I mostly played just to breed Chaos.  Discounted price for PS+ users, please?  :D

  • Luis Camargo

    I’m going to wait for a discount on SA1 and SA2 plus DLC.
    I don’t like very much that the best version is a DLC.

    Although, I know that if they release Skies of Arcadia HD and Legends as DLC, I’ll be paying in full >.>

  • Colonel Custard

    Boom Shakalaka  this is the best news I have heard all day. So much hype for something that I have played before.

  • Guest

    YES! NiGHTS is one if my favorite games ever! 

  • $733987

    But will your Chao from SA1 be importable into SA2?

  • shion16

    Final Rush *0*

  • Testsubject909

    Everyone! Sing along with me! 

  • karasuKumo

    Any idea about European releases? Sonic Adventure 2 is one of many, many games I need to buy again.

  • Solomon_Kano

    $10 apiece? They shall be mine.

  • Wafflenaut

    I will totally pay 10 dollars for the Chao garden.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Really and truly SA:2 is HD??
    Not just a port like SA:1?

    My body is ready.

  • Next in line: Skies of Arcadia HD.  That game’s deserving of a complete revamp though.

    • Locklear93

       God yes.  That’s my favorite JRPG, and it truly deserved a sequel.

  • personablaze

    Nights! @[email protected] I haven’t played it since…Damn I dont even know how long XD

    For 10$ a piece these two games are…Mine.

  • TheSquishyTanker

    How creepy, I was actually thinking about a SA2 HD remake earlier today. A definite buy for me.
    Any info on the voices, or are they just going to use the DC/CG ones? Karen Strassman’s Rouge is very good, and it’d be nice to hear more of it, but the originals are great as well.

  • puchinri

     Wait. . . are we getting Christmas NiGHTS? ;u;
    This is so awesome~! I can’t wait to play the original NiGHTS again. I’ll have to start it and go back to JoD and finish it afterwards.

  • AceWildCard

    Its….GLORIOUS 16:9, Awesome :D was fairly disappointed for the Sonic adventure port only being 4:3. So excited for SAB2, I guess sega “live(d) and learn(ed)” from last time teehee~
