NiGHTS Into Dreams HD Remake coming, John Layman taking over Detective Comics
NiGHTS Into Dreams HD Remake Coming Fall 2012
NiGHTS Into Dreams was a pretty big deal back in the Sega Saturn days (to the extent that anything on the Saturn was a big deal). The game (Which still features a weird court jester dude flying through a lot of rings, which is far more delightful than it sounds), which you can see the trailer for above, will be released on XBLA, PSN, and as a downloadable title on the PC. The announcement came on the 16th anniversary of the original game. In the release from SEGA, Chris Olson from SEGA said, “The SEGA Saturn offered many unique gaming experiences, and NiGHTS into dreams… stands out as one of the most recognizable titles that found a home on the system. We’ve gotten a lot of requests about this game over the years, and are very happy to be able to give both former Saturn owners and new players a chance to play it in its most beautiful form to date this fall.” The game will feature leaderboards, trophies, achievements, and add HD graphics and a 16:9 aspect ratio. No date was given for the release at this time (other that it will be released in the fall). Check out the full release from SEGA here.
John Layman from ‘Chew’ and Jason Fabok take of DC’s ‘Detective Comics’
John Layman’s work on the indie hit comic book ‘Chew’ is demented, weird, funny, and always entertaining, but now he’s *ahem* taking a bite out of something a little more dramatic. Layman will be taking over Detective Comics (joined by artist Jason Fabok) and, hopefully, taking his wicked sense of humor with him in Detective Comics #13, which is set to be released on October 3, 2012. Layman certainly seems happy with taking a shot at the Batman. The release from DC contains this quote regarding his (rather vague) plans for the book: “Obviously, this is a happily surreal and exciting turn-of-events for my career,” Layman told THE SOURCE. “Not only is this my first work within the DC Universe, but I get to work on one of DC’s undisputedly coolest and highest-profile characters. I’m going to take a look at the role of criminal organizations within Gotham City, hopefully from a perspective that does not get considered very often (if at all). From the symbiotic relationship a master criminal must have with Gotham in order to survive, to the lowly, often faceless criminal underling hoping to rise up the ranks. All that, plus Batman’s gonna play with a bunch of crazy new toys and kick all kinds of butt.” You can check out the full presser for the issue’s cover.
