    Anyone else here remember NiGHTS???

    It was one of the most innovative games ever featured on the Sega Saturn.


    Rumors of a sequel have been around for some time, and now the Wii has breathed new life into the thoughts once again.

    I have been begging for this to happen, NiGHTS is a flawless game to be on the Wii and long deserving of a sequel... PLEASE be true!

    I've been hearing this rumor for quite awhile now, but this seems to add some substance to it.

    And Enigma2k, you're not the only one wishing for a new Burning Rangers.

    Would it be too much to get original on the VC?

    Sega needs to give the Wii NiGHTS, Burning Rangers, and at least one each of Panzer Dragoon, Virtua Cop, House of The Dead, and Space Channel 5.

    Interesting news. I've never played NiGHTS (hope they put the original on the VC so I can), but it's one of those games I've heard about for years and I know has a huge cult following. So sounds like great news.

    Wouldn't that be something? The ex-competitor, SEGA, becomes the biggest advantage. And I'd love either a new NiGHTs game or the original on the VC. This only reaffirms my Wii purchase.

    Ive been hearing this rumor for awhile now but still.... Oh hell yes!!! :D  I hope they bring out the original NiGHTS on the VC too!!

    Edit: come to think of it, Mat from IGN has been hinting at a game for Wii that will apparently cause some sort of fangasm, but he never really says anything about it. I wonder if this could be what he was hinting at.

    Probably. There's also reason to suspect that Inafune Keiji is working on a Mega Man game for the Wii.

    A possible Wii Mega Man game?.... Im not even sure what I should think or how I should feel about that.

    But apparently Matt is really hyped about whatever is coming. So either another nights NiGHTS game, or a possible Mega Man.

    Some people are still saying this game could be Kid Icarus, but I just dont feel that Nintendo would bring that franchise out right now. I would expect too see something about it in a year or so, but not right now. If they did it would kinda feel like Nintendo is playing all their cards too early in this console war.

    Inafking and his team are known to be working on a "secret" unnamed Wii project. He's said in past interviews that the Wii is a very likely home for future Rockman games. He's also said that he's been wanting for a long time to make a new Rockman DASH (Mega Man Legends) game (he was originally planning it for PSP, but low sales of PSP Rockman games killed that idea). Incidentally, the Wii just happens to be perfect for something similar to DASH. This year is also Rockman's 20th anniversary. I don't know if this is what Matt's excited about, but there's practically no way we're not getting a Rockman/Mega Man game on the Wii. I'm thrilled at the prospect.
    Yeah, too soon. They'll wait until a year or two after Metroid Prime 3, most likely.

    Wow, if a new NiGHTS game is made for the Wii (and it's good) I might just have to buy a Wii to play that (and maybe only that).

    Now that could be awesome... I'm still waiting for the return of the original Megaman, it's an iconic character and it doesn't seem right for a bunch of pretenders, especially from ZX and Star Force, being the offerings for the big 20th Anniversary. That would be like if Masterpiece Convoy was based on the Armada figure... If it is Megaman Legends 3, I shall explode with joy. But I just want them to show some guts and bring back the original, at the very least to cap off the storyline and join it to the X series if they don't have intentions of continuing the series.

    and with that, I might have just been sold on a wii. I played sonic the other day, and liked it, and my girlfriend seems interested in some of the games.
