´NiGHTS into Dreams´ sequel Wii-bound
The sequel to the Sega Saturn classic ´NiGHTS into Dreams´ is being developed for Wii, the British Official Nintendo magazine seems to claim.
The current issue is promising to blow the lid off a new Wii title in its next issue. The teaser page reads "World Exclusive! Step back in time as a classic game makes a long overdue return." and shows the following images (the scans come courtesy of GoNintendo).
The stars in the picture above seem to suggest an outline. And the top would fit the game´s main character - ´NiGHTS´ wears a jester´s hat. Here is a still taken from the game´s ending.
And here is an image of the character superimposed onto the starry outline in the magazine´s teaser, courtesy of the NeoGAF forums (thanks to Vasuba and TSE).
Also, NGamer magazine is promising a big Wii exclusive. Here is their teaser (again via GoNintendo).
Both magazines belong to the same British publisher. It is likely that they will both reveal that a ´NiGHTS into Dreams´ sequel is in development for Wii.
EDIT A Sega or Nintendo representative who wishes to remain anonymous has confirmed this story to UK gaming site SPOnG (thanks to Cubed3 and ExtremeGamer3).
EDIT The story has been confirmed by way of an article in a Portuguese gaming magazine called ´Maxi Consolas´, including detailed screenshots.
