We've been speculating and reading rumors
for a while, but now we have what seems like a believable confirmation from Swedish magazine Gamereactor
. It's right there on the cover of the April issue! NiGHTS
! We are seriously freaking out about the return of one of the coolest Sega
There are, however, a few problems. First is that the cover doesn't necessarily mention the Wii as the platform for the new game. The rumors have all placed this on the Wii, so we'll just continue believing there. Secondly, there's the possibility that this preview cover is an elaborate April Fool's Day prank. We don't even want to think about that.
Finally, we have to remember that this new NiGHTS
game, if it's real, is going to be made by 2007 "Sonic 360/Shadow the Hedgehog
" Sega, and not 1996 awesome Sega. Also, former Sonic Team leader Yuji Naka has already disavowed
any involvement with a new NiGHTS.
