Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

NiGHTS into Dreams... for the PlayStation 2 is an enhanced remake of the cult classic Saturn game. It was released around the same time as the Wii sequel, Journey of Dreams. This version was later ported to the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 as a digital download title in 2012.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Check the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows ports if any of the cheats work.
    • Up, Down, Left, Right, Up, Down, Left, Right on D-Pad works on Windows version with xinput.
  • More Halloween stuff? Likely meant to be a secret for when you play the game on Halloween.
