The NiGHTS into Dreams title screen with a specific date.

The NiGHTS games all use Clock Features and may affect the gameplay of the game. By playing the game on specific dates, special features such as new backgrounds, costumes for the characters and easter eggs appear.[1]

In NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams, not only the game is connected with the Wii's internal clock, but it's also connected with the Wii's Forecast Channel. The Forecast Channel shows the weather conditions in real life and affects the game by adding unique features.
