I'm suprised so many people here have played Golden Sun it was one of lost GBA lost gaming gems that most didn't try even though it is the best game for the GBA IMO.
Edit: You guys heard yet?
Edit 2:Ah wait its April Fools day...joy anyway this isn't a joke.
June 2, 2009 - If you're one of the diehards who've been waiting for years, patiently, frustratingly sorting through rumors, fakes and wishful thoughts for news of a real next installment in the Golden Sun series -- well, you should be breathing a sigh of relief right now. And, even more so, since even if you're not here at E3 you're not missing much.
Don't get me wrong, Golden Sun DS looks incredible -- it's just that the E3 demo offered on the show floor here is incredibly brief. The game opens cinematically, sweeping a mountaintop home into view in glorious 3D against a backdrop of distant peaks. You see Isaac, the hero of the original Golden Sun game, re-imagined in 3D as well. You take control of him and run across a bridge, taking it all in.
And then the demo's over.
Seriously, the part of the Golden Sun DS demo that you can control last for, literally, less than 10 seconds. Camelot must not be quite ready to show off any more than that, and show decided once more to taunt us with just a tantalizing taste.
Luckily, though, the demo's 10-second playable length doesn't defeat the entire presentation, as a video of battle sequences, exploration and character glimpses follows after you lose control of Isaac's movements -- and this game looks amazing. Really, check out the trailer we've got here for the game. Golden Sun DS could very well be setting the new high bar for 3D role-playing on Nintendo's handheld.
And, if you're interested, the walking control seems to be just fine. Isaac's movement can be control directly by D-Pad, or you can touch a point on the screen with the stylus to have him move there.
We'll have more on Golden Sun DS soon, so stay tuned. And celebrate! Golden Sun's sequel is finally coming, for real!
