Those hoping that the PS2 port of the Sega Saturn classic NiGHTS
would be released outside of Japan may be out of luck. Takashi Iizuka -- producer, director, and lead game designer on the Wii-sclusive NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams
-- recently spoke with Sega Nerds
about all things NiGHTS
When asked about the PS2 enhanced port of the original NiGHTS Into Dreams
, Iizuka commented that at present, the title is only scheduled for release in Japan, and that there are no plans to bring the title to other regions, or, for that matter, to the Nintendo Wii
Iizuka also commented that the PS2 port was the direct result of a high demand for the game in Japan. Given that, it's still possible that solid sales of the NiGHTS
sequel might inspire releases of the original in more regions. Let's keep the hope alive.
