SEGA Japan has revealed that NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams will be linked to the Wii Weather Channel.

That means when it is miserable and grey outside it will also be miserable and grey in-game, specifically in the "A-Life" mode that lets you cross-breed creatures and create your own sandbox adventures.

Apparently the critters will also change their behaviour depending on what time of day it is, what the weather is up to and what season you are in. There's nothing like escaping reality.

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams is an adventure that sits somewhere between action and racing, as you fly through dreamscapes as the jester-suit-wearing NiGHTS, battling Nightmaren creatures as you attempt help two young children rid themselves of bad dreams.

Tom had a chance to play with it at the Tokyo Game Show in September and was thoroughly excited, calling it "quite enchanting, beautifully realised and delicately scored".

Hopefully the full game will live up to its promise when it is released exclusively on Wii early next year.
