Sadly I think, with the Switch, we're less likely than ever to get a Golden Sun sequel. With the power of the system, expectations (and budget) would be high, and it may be too risky a move for Nintendo.

That said, I do hope we get a 1+2 (and possibly 3) collection on the Switch to please the existing fans. And if that does reasonably well? Maybe a sequel is a possibility.

A remaster of the first two is all they really can do. Long time fans get more Golden Sun (and it would allow them to release 1 and 2 as one game, like they meant to originally), and it means newcomers won't be left with a bunch of unexplained backstory.

There's no reason why we couldn't get 1 & 2 via NSO if Nintendo were to add GBA games to the subscription service. I believe that's our best bet.

@Magician I just don't think a NSO release would be significant enough. The first two were released on VC for the Wii U, and it just isn't big enough of a deal. I guess NSO reaches everyone who has NSO and that is more significant, but still. I also don't see that happening. It's taken over two years for Nintendo to even say they're "considering" SNES games. NSO is a mess and Nintendo doesn't care about actually making that service good. At this rate we'd be lucky to see N64 games before the Switch's lifespan ends.

Agreed. Even if Nintendo added GBA games to NSO we probably wouldn't see 1 & 2 added to NSO until years later. Still, I feel as though that possibility is much more likely than Nintendo allowing Camelot to develop a new entry or even a compilation pack.

Personally I'd love a remaster which, while retaining the original sprite-work, cleans things up for a HD experience (e.g. 16:9 resolution) and adds a few QOL features. I think that would be relatively low-effort while making a bigger deal of the games than ROM-dumping on NSO.
