OK, let’s see a show of hands: Who is already getting sick of hearing about NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams on the Wii? Alright, very interesting. Now, who is sick of it primarily because of the 16,000 posts I have done about it in the last few days? Wow, I knew it.

Well, sorry to add to the overexposure, but some new information about the game was just revealed and, I swear, some of it is almost mildly interesting.

According to SEGA of Europe, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams will use the Wii’s Forecast Channel to change the scenery to match what the real world seasons are like outside. While this is nothing revolutionary, the fact that the designers are branching out and trying some different things is refreshing. But will this enhance/affect the gameplay at all aside from looking cool? Probably not. But it’s a unique addition to what is shaping up to be a promising game.

Still not convinced? Hit the jump for more gameplay info — including the greatest/dirtiest sounding feature yet — the dolphin mask!

Here’s all the new information:

-Three sets of Persona masks give the player new shape-shifting abilities and more ways to explore the world.

  • Dragon mask: Transforms NiGHTS into a huge dragon and makes him resistant to wind effects.
  • Dolphin mask: NiGHTS can change into a dolphin and explore underwater.
  • Rocket mask: NiGHTS takes the shape of a rocket and travels at supersonic speeds.

-There are seven fantastical dream worlds to explore and the unique environments of Nightopia introduce an extraordinary, magical world unlike any other.

-WiiConnect24: Exchange items with friends via the network and change the scenery according to real-world seasons using the Forecast Channel.
