Golden Sun Coming to DS

Posted by Corbie Dillard

The classic GBA RPG series is headed to DS!

It's been over 6 years since we've seen a Golden Sun release, but the series, consisting of two releases on Nintendo's Game Boy Advance system, is now officially coming to Nintendo's DS system with the announcement of Golden Sun DS.

In the brief promo video shown at Nintendo's Press Conference, we got to see that the game has now taken on a much more 3-D look to it and puts the dual-screen format of the DS to good use, as shown in the dual screen boss fight.

After going dark six years ago, 2010 will see a new dawn. Golden Sun DS updates the popular portable Golden Sun role-playing series with an impressive graphical style. This installment follows the story of the previous heroes’ descendants and immerses players into the magic of its adventure by pushing the boundaries of intuitive touch-screen controls. Golden Sun DS is playable on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems.

Below is the official E3 trailer for Golden Sun DS. We'll have more information on Golden Sun DS as it becomes available.

DS is becoming a RPG power house, that mean less money in my pocket...but I get have more fun!

I never quite finished The Lost Age. Love Golden Sun though, love it love it love it. I can't believe it actually got announced! Through the whole RPG bit I thought, ok, Crystal Bearers, Kingdom Hearts, maybe they'll show Dragon Quest IX? But when Reggie mentioned a game that we hadn't seen for 6 years, I thought... It can't be... And it was. .



Kelvin said:

Nice! I'm finally nearing the end of The Lost Age, so it'll be good to continue!

This was the biggest surprise that came out of Nintendo's E3 conference today! Nice work Nintendo, I can't wait!



James said:

Fantastic news - been waiting for a new one for years. Cannot wait to get this one: Camelot can do no wrong in my eyes.



Objection said:

This deserves an OMFG. I loved the GBA games and have been waiting ever since for a new one. Camelot is awesome~!



gig said:

Oh so cool. The Golden Sun games rocked on the GBA this will be great, can't wait.



Slapshot said:

Sweetness. Loved the Golden Sun series. Was NOT expecting this one out of E3. Best of Nintendo's show in my opinion.



Noire said:

This was so unexpected and so very awesome that I actually cried. Reggie, you could not have made me happier than you did that moment. All the rest is just icing on the cake.



mjc0961 said:

Yeah, that was the best. Even though the rest of their show put me to sleep, Nintendo wins for this. I was so happy when out of the rambling about Wii Fit 2 and other casual nonsense, I heard Reggie say ".... Golden Sun DS."

Thank you Reggie!

The words "about freaking time" can't emphasize how long Camelot and Nintendo were delaying the announcement; I mean, they knew that gamers demanded a third Golden Sun for years. I wasn't very surprised when Fils-Ame finally made the announcement, but that doesn't mean that I'm not excited.

Let's hope that the characters, the story and the continent of Weyard (is that the proper name?) remains just as endearing as the previous games.

I loved the last ones its funny i just beat them for the 8th time around and i was just thinking about when they were coming out with a new one. Quite a nice surprise to see this coming on the market, Its about time Camalot



Invertedzero said:

Probably the best announcement at Nintendo's E3.

I hope the battle system sees a few slight tweaks mind though. Will the graphics be as good though now it's in 3D? On the GBA camelot just mastered the usage of the little they had available to use in 2D, hence making use of drawn/rendered art/sprites. In 3D with the DS's power, what tricks will we see camelopt use to make the game look just as stunning (relatively)?
