Publisher SEGA presented new details today about the different masks in NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams and the game's online functionality.
The acrobatic jester NiGHTS will have access to three unique transformations that fall under the umbrella term of Persona Masks. The Dolphin Mask will allow NiGHTS to swim underwater and discover new paths; the Rocket Mask will turn NiGHTS into a rocket for increased speed; and the Dragon Mask will transform NiGHTS into a a dragon that is unaffected to wind and gravity. It is unknown how NiGHTS will acquire these Persona Masks during gameplay or how long their added abilities will last.
Journey of Dreams will use the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to expand upon the Artificial Life (A-Life) feature from the original NiGHTS game. Players will be able to capture, raise and combine the inhabitants of Nightopia, and then share their virtual creations with friends via the Internet. Two offline players will also be able to compete in the title's multiplayer mode.
