The issue of NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams'
control scheme is getting more complicated-- and, to us, more awesome. Reports from TGS
indicated that the game made no use of motion controls; later, we heard that the motion controls were optional, and disappointing
. But it seems that we have yet to hear the whole story about the control options for this game.
Sega's North American NiGHTS
website has opened up, and its "features" area lists the supported controllers for the game. According to the website, it is possible to play NiGHTS
with the Wiimote, Wiimote and Nunchuk, Classic Controller, or even a GameCube controller. We still have yet to determine the specifics of any of the control schemes, but it at least seems more likely that there will be one for everybody. And, as with Super Smash Bros. Brawl,
we're excited about replaying the game using different control schemes.
The website also features a brisk history of NiGHTS
and a short video of the Saturn game in action. It also
features a lovely sparkle effect when you move your mouse.
