Nights HD to Include Christmas Nights

Players can expect the title in early October alongside Sonic Adventure 2.

Sega revealed today their plans for releasing the HD upgrades to both Nights into Dreams and Sonic Adventure 2. Eager fans needn't wait much longer as both titles are planned for an early October release, with both coming to PSN on October 2 and XBLA on October 5. Both will be available at $9.99 (800 MSP) and both will offer experiences that extend the initial offering found on the Dreamcast/Saturn.

Sonic Adventure 2 will see the GameCube-based Battle Mode DLC for $3.00 (240 MSP) sometime after release, but more exciting is that Nights into Dreams will include the Christmas Nights content for free.

Christmas Nights saw release packed in with other titles or as a special promotion through magazines. Acting as a sampler for the full game, the title re-themed some levels in the game and offered a special Sonic mode complete with a bouncing ball Dr. Robotnik enemy and associated music. It's not clear if this Sonic material will be available in the HD release, but we will know soon enough.

Very excited about the Nights port and even more excited now that it's going to include Christmas Nights. A nice little bonus for what's already a pretty damn good value.

If you haven't played Nights before, it's worth keeping this one on your radar, especially if you're a fan of classic Sega work.

Mega Man 3 Review Rewind

For years, there has been a heated debate among fans of the Mega Man series regarding which one is the best of the original hexalogy. After the facts have been laid out and philosophical life lessons thoroughly dissected, the debate usually boils down to Mega Man 2 vs. Mega Man 3. Which is the greater of the two? Well, no matter which side you’re on, we can all agree on the thing- the cover art for Mega Man 3 finally got it right! No more awkward stances or that pistol-for-an-arm-cannon nonsense. Of course, he didn’t look as good as on the Famicom cover, but that’s another argument.
