Officially, SEGA continues to evade the question of whether NiGHTS is coming to Wii, but following more mag reports last week Japanese magazine Famitsu has now "confirmed" it, with a new name, logo, and a quote from Sonic Team USA producer Takashi Iizuka.
"NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams", the mag's website says, is due out this winter for Wii. "In 1996, we created the NiGHTS character to achieve a concept of 'being refreshed from being able to fly in the sky'. 11 years later, at last, we have broken our silence. NiGHTS will now fly in a new dream world: new stages, new story, and on the new Wii platform. Please look forward to NiGHTS and friends exploring this brand new adventure," says Iizuka in comments translated by Joystiq.
SEGA is expected to unveil NiGHTS - the sequel to the 1996 Saturn title - in more detail early this month. Wink.
