NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams – Persona Masks Detailed

One of the key new features coming to NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams is the addition of Personas, special masks found safely tucked away in treasure chests throughout the game world enabling you to transform into different forms on the fly. The game’s three Persona masks — Dolphin, Dragon, and Rocket — each open up a unique and fairly obvious set of abilities when worn:

Dolphin Mask:
The Dolphin Persona mask gives NiGHTS the ability to transform into a dolphin. Normally, NiGHTS cannot swim, but using the dolphin mask will give NiGHTS the ability to go underwater finding new paths to explore that were unreachable before.

Dragon Mask:
With the Dragon Persona mask, NiGHTS can become a dragon. While the speed compared to other Personas is much lower, NiGHTS instead becomes unaffected by either wind or gravity, enabling NiGHTS to move through the air freely. Now, wind currents that might have kept NiGHTS at bay before will pose no obstacle.

Rocket Mask:
With the Rocket Persona, NiGHTS is able to assume the form of a rocket. As you might expect, the main attribute of a rocket is speed! Instead of NiGHTS’ usual graceful flight, you can now blast full speed ahead! When used properly, this increased speed can be used to reach rings and other items further away.
