Unlike any other game available today, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams will

With the help of Persona masks, players will glide, spiral and loop

against fantastic and unforgettable boss battles. Anchored by a
storyline about courage, hope and inspiration, NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams
is the most unique and experience on the Wii.
NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams unfolds in Nightopia, the spectacular dream
world of two young characters, Helen and Will. Struggling to overcome
the every day challenges of growing up, these two 12-year-olds find
their real life experiences spilling over into their dreams. As Helen
and Will fall into a deep sleep, they are greeted by NiGHTS, a fantasy
jester, who leads them to explore the rich and vibrant land of
Nightopia. Along the way, NiGHTS helps the youngsters bravely face their
fears by finding inventive ways to confront, outpace, and outwit foes --
such as the villainous Nightmarens. Through the freedom of flight,
execution of stunning acrobatic moves and tapping into special
abilities, gamers can overcome obstacles and restore peace to Nightopia.
What is A-LIFE: A-LIFE are creatures living in the world of dreams.
There are 3 types of A-LIFE: "Nightopians" who reside in Nightopia,
"Nightmarens" from the world of Nightmare, and "Mepians" who are a mix
of the two creatures. A-LIFE live freely in the world of Nightopia and
they multiply, learn, and evolve as they transform with generational
What is "My Dream": "My Dream" is a customizable "sandbox" environment
where players raise their A-LIFE creatures. By using NiGHTS ability to
para-loop in the single-player game, the A-LIFE creatures can be
captured and transferred to a players My Dream space. The My Dream
world evolves dramatically depending on how the player nurtures the
A-LIFE activities and the various objects that the player drops into the
environment, creating a truly personal experience.
