This news was unearthed in a footage shown at SEGA’s Summer of Sonic event which confirmed the addition of NiGHTS to the game’s roster.
In a rather funny move, NiGHTS won’t require a vehicle at all. He’ll instead, be the actual vehicle and fly throughout the game’s courses.
Speaking of which, there’s also a NiGHTS-themed stage, too.
Hopefully, SEGA will release the actual assets for this so we don’t have to contend with blurry pics.
For more pics, head on over to NeoGAF.
