Listing Details

Christmas Nights (クリスマスナイツ) is a Christmas-themed game of Nights into Dreams that was released in December 1996. In Japan, it was part of a Christmas Saturn bundle. 

The Christmas Nights disc contains the full version of Claris' Spring Valley dream level from Nights into Dreams, which allows both Claris and Elliot to play through the area, something Elliot could not do previously as it was not his dream. Elliot's version of the level contains a different item layout than Claris'.  The story of Christmas Nights follows Elliot and Claris during the holiday season following their adventures with Nights. Though they both enjoy the Christmas season, they feel as if something is missing. Finding that the Christmas Star that usually sits at the top of the Twin Seeds Christmas tree is missing, the pair head off to Nightopia to find it. There, they meet up with Nights again and re-explore Spring Valley, which has now been Christmas-ified due to the kids' dreams of the holiday season. The trio of heroes must now take down a revived Gillwing and retrieve the Christmas Star from his lair. 

The game uses the Saturn's internal clock to change elements of the game according to the date and time. In November and January, the title screen label "Nights: Limited Edition" is changed to "Winter Nights", with the lush greenery of the environment being replaced by white snow. During December, "Christmas Nights" mode is activated, resulting in further Christmas-themed alterations, such as item boxes becoming Christmas presents, Nightopians dressing in elf costumes, and Christmas trees replacing Ideya captures. The background music is replaced by an instrumental version of "Jingle Bells", as well as there being a "Christmas-like" rendition of the boss theme. During the "Winter Nights" period, the weather in Spring Valley will change according to what hour it is. Other cosmetic changes are visible on New Year's Day and Halloween, and loading the game on April Fool's Day results in Reala replacing Nights as the playable character.  The disc features a number of unlockable bonuses such as character artwork. Further extra modes allow players to observe the status of the A-life system, experiment with the game's music mixer, time attack one Mare, or play the demo stage as Sega's mascot Sonic the Hedgehog. In the "Sonic the Hedgehog: Into Dreams" minigame, Sonic is only able to traverse the Spring Valley stage on foot, and the original game's Puffy boss is re-skinned as a "bouncy ball" version of Doctor Robotnik. The music is a slightly remixed version of "Final Fever", the final boss battle music from the Japanese and European version of Sonic CD.

The attached photos are of the actual game I am selling, please check the condition.  It has been tested on an actual Japanese Saturn and plays great.  Make sure that you are able to play Japanese Sega Saturn games before bidding.  You will need a Japanese Sega Saturn or a Western Sega Saturn with an import converter (ST Key, Pro Action Replay, etc) or mod.

I am based in Japan so I charge the same price to ship to the United States, North America, Europe, etc.  I will charge the price listed as "U.S." regardless of where you live (unless you live in Japan and then I can quote you a domestic price).  I ship everything standard airmail and it should arrive to most destinations within 7-10 days.  

Loose carts and CD games will be wrapped in a removable plastic sleeve and then placed in a bubble wrapped mailer for shipping.  Boxed or fragile games will be cushioned with bubble wrap or newspaper and put in a larger box.  Please remember, the games will ship from Japan so please allow some additional shipping time.  Also during Japanese postal holidays (New Year's, Golden Week, Obon) orders will be delayed while the post office is closed. 

I am able to combine orders.  I will automatically combine orders and in nearly all cases lower the price. If you are buying lots of small items like loose carts or Jewel Case discs the combined shipping can be significantly less than what is listed. 

If your total order is over 2kg it will need to be shipped either seamail (slow but cheap) or EMS (fast but expensive). You will have the option to choose one of these two methods.
