Sega has announced that an HD remake of their classic flying platformer, Nights Into Dreams, will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade, PSN and PC this autumn.
‘The SEGA Saturn offered many unique gaming experiences, and Nights Into Dreams stands out as one of the most recognisable 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.’
Initially released for SEGA Saturn 16 years ago today, Nights Into Dreams is one of the best-regarded games in Sega’s history and a favorite of many fans thanks to its innovative gameplay and multi-faceted level design. This new version will bring the world of Nightopia to vivid life with improved HD graphics and a 16:9 aspect ratio, as well as added support for leaderboards, trophies, and achievements.
Sega have also confirmed that the purists amongst you will be able to take advantage of an optional Saturn Mode that will let players experience the game with the original graphics intact.
