Sure enough, today Sega has officially announced an HD remake of the beloved Sega Saturn flying platformer. It will bring with it all the trappings one expects from an HD remake, including improved graphics (widescreen!), online leaderboards and achievements. In addition to that, you will also have the option to play the original Sega Saturn version of the game. Whether you're an old fan or someone wanting to see what all the fuss is about, you can check out NiGHTS into dreams when it comes to XBLA sometime this fall.
You can see the game in action in the announcement trailer above, and check below for a handful of screenshots.

How did you respond when Hershel asked about your bum leg? Did you save Shawn, Duck or leave both to be eaten? Who did you side with in a dispute between Kenny and Larry? These are just a handful of decisions players faced while playing through episode one of The Walking Dead, "A New Day." Player choice plays a big role in how the episode – and future installments – play out, story-wise.

Guardians of Middle-Earth, the latest Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game to aim for the Xbox Live Arcade scene since Awesomenauts, wastes no time jumping into the action. We talked at length about the game in our preview from E3, but Monolith explains further how they manage to carefully select what elements of MOBA are strongest here. "We wanted to get players in and out of the game quickly", designer Scott Compton told us in a roundtable press conference, "We wanted to get players in and out of the game quickly. 45 – 60 minutes is too long of a game."
This Lord of the Rings MOBA was built from the ground up to be about the action and overall have shorter match times than other games in the genre. To achieve this, the foundation had to be set with the controls. While the answer to how a MOBA would work on a console has been of some debate lately, Monolith claims they had a rather easy time with it. Compton told us that "putting the player in direct control was a really satisfying experience. Using the left stick and "driving" the character around on the battlefield, rather than clicking and orienting your character that way." Using rectangular, wedge and circle attack radii all aimed with the left stick, the game achieves precision even without a mouse.
