Every NiGHTS Fan Should See Cirque du Soleil's Mystère

Why? It's the inspiration for Saturn classic NiGHTS Into Dreams, according to the game's creator Yuji Naka, who tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about the cult Sega hit in a new interview.

Naka, whose latest game Ivy the Kiwi? is bound for the Wii and Nintendo DS this summer, spills everything NiGHTS-related to fan site NiGHTSintoDreams.com. Yes, the original NiGHTS was largely influenced by Cirque du Soleil's Mystère—still playing at Treasure Island in Las Vegas—and, yes, there's a reason the "i" in NiGHTS is in lowercase.

Yes, there was a PC version of NiGHTS. Yes, there was a special Saturn controller designed specifically for the game. No, Yuji Naka will not create a sequel.

As interviews go, Naka's responses to NiGHTS fans is a great one. If you're a fan, check it out.
