A couple of revered Sega classics are available on the download scene this week. First, we’ve got NiGHTS Into Dreams, a Sega Saturn original that became one of the most beloved titles on the platform back in 1996. The game, produced by the legendary Yuji Naka, featured rich on-rails flying gameplay through multiple dream worlds. It was a joy to play and a real treat to see and listen to thanks to its colorful visuals and great soundtrack.
Also out this week is Sonic Adventure 2. Originally released on the Dreamcast in 2001, we eventually saw the game land on the GameCube. Both versions were well received, so it’s going to be interesting seeing how this digital remake fares. I’m actually excited to jump back into the world of Sonic Adventure 2. Maybe I’ll actually finish the game this time.
Both NiGHTS Into Dreams and Sonic Adventure 2 have received an HD update, achievements, and leaderboard support. The games are currently available for $9.99 apiece on the PlayStation Network, and they’ll land on Xbox Live Arcade this Friday, October 5.
