Steve Lycett Confirms Reflection Sightings In ASR Aren’t Nightopians

Steve Lycett Confirms Reflection Sightings In ASR Aren’t Nightopians

UPDATE: Steve Lycett from Sumo Digital under his S0L nickname has confirmed the Nightopian sightings are just environment reflections. However Steve has seen how keen the community is to see NiGHTS in the game and still doesn’t confirm either way wether the character is in the game or not.

I feel slightly like I’m spoiling your fun here – but it’s purely the reflection of the environment you’re seeing there…

You guys really are rather desperate to see NiGHTS in there aren’t you!

Put it this way – that would have taken some quite extensive photo-shopping – and you’re also credting us with fair more deviousness than even I have!

Original story below:

Nightopians in ASR
Editor’s note: Those are not in-game gold rings…

Nightopians2
I’ve just spotted another Nightopian in the above picture. It’s in the shiney wood finish in the red circle, turn your head to the left and you’ll see its head, eyes and large white collar. It would explain the sparkles in the screenshot too.

Eagle eyed SSMB member HunterTSF has spotted Nightopians in the above old screenshot of Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing. Nightopians are small residents of Nightopia seen around various stages in the NiGHTS games. This isn’t confirmation but could very well mean our favourite jester NiGHTS could very well be in Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing after all.

Let’s hope NiGHTS is the now possibly delayed special announcement Sumo Digital’s Steve Lycett has been talking about recently.

Thanks again to HunterTSF and his eagle eyes!

  1. …I hope it’s true…
    because….
    no offense but… this whole “Don’t forget NiGHTS” campaign is beginning to become a bit tedious… >_>;;;

  2. I don’t see no Nightopians… I do see some little shape that look like cone-headed fairy
    wait…
    I really dunno whatever I’m seeing is that “Nightopian” ><

  3. oh wait I see it!!
    Or them actually ^^

    on that big gold thingy 😮

    I had to get the picture from the Sega FTP site since they had a bigger picture.

  4. *last post*

    oh wow…those gold ring thingys circled them XD

    I thought they were actual gold rings….*fail*

  5. I must say I’ve still got a hunch nights might be unlockable,
    I mean, If we knew all the characters that were going to be in this game it wouldn’t be a surprise,
    And honestly, wheres the fun in that =D.


    Damn those rings. XD

  7. Yeah , just because NiGhts was in Sonic adventure Pin Ball Mini-Game Doesn’t mean he was playable =]

  8. Yeah, thanks to you NiGHTS nut jobs, the game is delayed even longer :(((

    OK, lets approach this realistically , the first sighting = http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z190/Jixson80/Jigglynight.jpg

    The second sighting.. well, that fits right into the whole ” I see MJ in this piece of toast / on this tree stump / in a cloud ” fad

    –-
    *Every time someone says Sonic Adventure 2 was good, all Sonic players worldwide are disconnected from their online Smash Bros Brawl game*

  9. lol, us NiGHTS nut jobs didn’t delay anything. As far as I know the game’s date hasn’t changed.

    Anyway, yes, those are Pians, definitely. No, NiGHTS is not in ASR :D. DiGi’s word is law on anything regarding NiGHTS. Pians have made appearances in games NiGHTS isn’t playable in ;).

  10. I see nothing either, though the pics are extremely low resolution and suffer from serious JPEG compression.

    I suppose people are seeing what they want to see 🙂

  11. NiGHTS is totally gonna be in the game. Leaving him out would be like Nintendo leaving Link out of a Smash bros. game.

  12. how can it be Photoshoped if it is in the original picture too? >< STRAIGHT from the Sega FTP site? 😮

  13. also….

    I lol’d at the Editor’s Note XD

    could’ve put that before without confusing the heck out of us XD

  14. @Golden~Hedgy

    No, he’s saying that THEY wouldn’t have Photoshopped in the reflections. They… wouldn’t make a huge amount of sense to be actual ingame reflections, with the possible exception of the second one.

  15. It’s nice to see the love for Nights and the community getting involved to regain interest in the character but things really seem like they’ve gone a bit overboard. No offence to anyone cause this is probably just me speaking as someone who has a passing interest in Nights and not the full-on fan thing going on. I’ve never had the chance to play the original as I don’t own a Saturn or a way of playing PS2 imports but I liked the wii sequel a lot. Very whimsical and charming game that. Makes a great Christmas game 😉
