"If I had to use one word to sum up Sega’s Saturn classic NiGHTS into Dreams… it would have to be unique. It’s one of those games that was displayed on kiosks in malls, in the hopes that some kid would pester their parents into bringing a Saturn home with them. I remember trying it out alongside Panzer Dragoon at Electronics Boutique (remember them?). NiGHTS was one of the most beautifully rendered, colorful games in existence when it released in1996. It shared not just the visual brilliance but also the fluidity of its competitor Super Mario 64. This little jester-looking guy(?) was one of the iconic mascots of the ill-fated Saturn, especially considering that Team Sonic never released a Sonic game for the platform. NiGHTS was also notable for being the game packaged with Saturn’s analog stick controller – previously it featured only a d-pad."
