While I don't follow SEGA's brand much personally, I will say it's a clever marketing move. As we found out at Sonic Boom 2012, NiGHTs has value to a considerable amount of people, and throwing his world into the game as a non-canon extra is a pretty good treat indeed.

Heck, from a business perspective this could even serve to rekindle interest in NiGHTs among the mainstream market, thus allowing SEGA to help rebuild its brand so it's no longer effectively just "Sonic with a few sidekick franchises."

Yeah, I'd love to see more SEGA cameos in Sonic again. SA2 was the last main Sonic game to include these (for the obvious reason that it was the last to appear on a SEGA console), and of course there were the Riders games after it that allowed you to play as characters like Ulala.

 

The more cameos, the merrier.

NiGHTS is making cameos in Sonic games again? Awesome! If I don't have a Wii U by the time this comes out I might just get the game with the pre-order bonus and leave it lying around until I get the console.

But then again, this might become DLC later on.

Prrrreeeeeeeeeeety much this. I'm one of the few people that wanted a Wii U from the get - go, as I was already curious about it, nevermind Lost World and the like. But this.... this just hurts me that I have to miss out on this magnificence.

 

 

Here's to hoping for even more cameos from Nights and other Sega franchises in the future, and that the 3DS version has something like this too...*crosses fingers*

I don't want to spoil everyone's fun, but I can't be the only one who is disappointed in this move.

 

Not in the actual content, because it looks really cool! I mean the way this is Special Edition DLC only.

 

It just seems so unfair that this content will be locked off and sold off at a higher price, when it should just be included in the standard edition.

 

Ah well

 

/Rant over.

Can't help but agree to be honest, at least some of it should be in the standard game and I hope it's made easily available to all in the future.

I mean, it's not specific to SEGA as it's a video game brand trend.

It's just so annoying. Having content withdrawn to buy at a higher price doesn't exist in any other format.

 

Plato's Republic: Special Edition (Includes Book Ten!)

 

Olivier's Version of Hamlet (Includes the final fight).

 

Ahh well..

Why?  It wouldn't make sense in the normal game unless they marketed it as some kind of SonicxNiGHTS crossover game.  It makes perfect sense as a special edition/dlc thing because it's content that wouldn't be expected for the normal game.  It's not like additional characters in fighting games for example.  It's a bonus.

It would make perfect sense as a general unlockable easter egg. Ala, Sonic Riders or even the Sonic Adventure Nights Camo.

 

It's clearly finished content, and could be put in the game, but isn't so people fork out more money for a special edition. It's an immoral practice and cannot be defended. Locking off content that should be in the game and forcing the consumer to buy the complete game for a higher price 'Super Special Edition' or via DLC is by far the biggest evil in the videogame industry.

 

I'm not knocking Lost World, the game looks like a dream.

 

But this.. is pure shoddiness.

I dunno, SEGA didn't need a reason to put the NiGHTS pinball table in Sonic Adventure. Why should they need a reason to do this? It'd not even called the "NiGHTS Edition" but the Deadly Six Edition so I really think it's just a cameo for the sake of cameo. No special meaning behind it, and could easily be made available for the regular game for those who like little bonuses in games (I think we all do).

 

I'm not hatin' on SEGA for making the move, but I agree with PF in that it'd be nice if things like this were standard in the game more often.. like they used to be.

This is just a pre-order bonus, it's not going to cost more? Not sure where that's coming from. This will just be a code on your GameStop receipt, a code in an email, or a code on an insert in the game case more than likely.

I swear if this is European-exclusive I'm gonna explode, LOL.

 

This is one of the greatest things. All the NiGHTs references in the Adventure games really made all of Sonic Team and Sega's works feel connected together in some fashion, and it felt really really nice. This coming back in Lost World is the last thing I expected, and it makes me so dang happy. :D

Guys, I don't think SEGA is charging us extra for this. The Deadly Six Edition seems like it's pretty much what the Bonus Edition was for Transformed.

 

I would be surprised if they don't put another, say, £5 on the price tag.

 

Okay, here's where I stand.

 

If the Special Edition is the same price, and released worldwide, then I still think it's a stupid decision (since it should just be in the standard version) but it cannot really be condemned.

 

But I think it's very unlikely. If they are the same price, there would be no incentive to buy the standard version.

I feel a pinball machine is different than straight up fighting the enemies from NiGHTS.

 

But either way, I'm pretty sure the Limited Edition of ASRT is still available, so this shouldn't be too hard to get.

Not the point I was making.

 

Folks were plenty disappointed at how freakin' limited the release of the Casino Night DLC was post Generations' release, causing many who hadn't had the opportunity to pre-order to completely miss out on this bonus. We're already two years past the game, and the folks in blue hadn't had the decency to add it in the XBLMarketplace, the PSN Store, and others, save for a specific region of the world via one platform, if I recall correctly.

 

Simply put, I just hope that this doesn't turn out to be pre-order exclusive DLC, or DLC that ends up being neglected by SEGA once Lost World is out.
