Sega has now launched the official website for NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, the Wii sequel to the classic Sega Saturn original NiGHTS into Dreams. Swoop over to www.NiGHTSgame.com for an overview of the game’s key features, story and historical background, trailers and screenshots, with other sections for Masks, Characters, Worlds, My Dreams and other media (wallpapers, screensavers, AIM icons, etc.) yet to be unlocked.

Reading through the features section I noticed some very exciting details that I hadn’t heard announced before. First and foremost, more info is listed regarding the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection functionality. According to the site, players will be able to connect online and share their “My Dream” sandbox worlds with others, trade items and compete in a two-player head-to-head Race mode. Also interesting is the game’s support for four controller options: the Wii Remote by itself, Wii Remote and Nunchuk combo, Wii Classic Controller or the GameCube controller. I always thought it was being designed to take specific advantage of the motion-sensing technology for gliding and spiraling NiGHTS through the air, but obviously gamers will also have the option to play using standard analog stick/d-pad controls…

Check out the new site for more and watch for NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams to land on store shelves December 18th.
