NiGHTS into Dreams Coming to XBLA, PSN, PC

The Sega Saturn classic will be released in HD this fall.

This past Tuesday Sega posted an image (pictured below) on their Facebook page and Twitter feed that puzzled at least a few folks. However, when the dust settled, the consensus was that it was from the NiGHTS series, sparking immediate speculation. Today, Sega revealed that the mysterious picture was teasing the announcement of an HD port of the original NiGHTS into Dreams to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.

The original game was released 16 years ago on the Sega Saturn and is widely considered to be one of the best titles available for the console. Chris Olson, Vice President of Digital Business at Sega released the following statement concerning this announcement:

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. 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.

This port will feature improved HD graphics, a 16:9 aspect ratio, leaderboards, trophies and achievements. As an added bonus, an optional Saturn mode will be available that lets players experience the game with the original graphics used on the Saturn version. Check out the announcement trailer below.
