Let’s Not Forget About Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

Matthew will be aided, much like his father, by elemental Djinn which can be used in battle and on the field. Golden Sun: Dark Dawn comes out on November 29 in North America.

  • The best DS game this year!!!! The puzzles seem like they will be all sorts of fun too!!!!

    I’m really worried about the lack of support on nintendo’s side, I mean, I haven’t seen commercials, the only previews availables are the ones with the belongs to the demo, I mean, why nintendo has not put a more complete demo on the hands of the game sites.

    I hate to say this, but even that this game will rock I predict that it will fail on sales and the ones to blame will be nintendo for their lack of support.

    • It will crack 1mln sales worldwide by end of 2012. I think its sales are solidly guaranteed. Lost Age or Golden Sun 1 managed more than 1mln, which is pretty awesome for handheld rpgs in this day and age.

      • I still don’t know which magic spell did Nintendo use to make this so popular in the States. Whatever it is Nintendo should teach it to Bamco….

        • Hahaha, that’s a good idea.

        • They released the first game within the first 4 months of the GBA’s life, when there wasn’t any other original game of it’s kind, resulting ample time for word of mouth to be spread around. Raving reviews from popular magazines and G4TV probably helped to.

          • Joanna

            That’s exactly it. It’s also why Phoenix Wright succeeded where other VNs of equal calibre haven’t on the DS. It’s also why Namco would be smart to release their Tales port ASAP stateside.

      • kylehyde

        I think you are right, I need to be more optimistic. Still this game will be a first day purchase.

      • Joanna

        I hope there are enough of us that fondly remember this game and will go out and buy it.

        But this makes me curious, I wonder how Glory of Hercules did. It was release mid-life with little to no advertisement. I think it would be a good indication of what name brand alone can get Nintendo in sales (for RPGs at least).

  • joesz

    yeah I still can’t believe that this is happening right now.

  • Counting down the seconds. I seriously can’t wait.

  • ryne11

    I will be gone for about 3 months around the time the game is released. What are the odds :|

  • Looks great! I’ll definitely pick it up. I’m not even going to lie, though, when the 3DS hits, I will NOT be sad to see DS 3D go.

    • thebanditking

      I agree, 3D graphics on DS have always been kind of nasty looking. Personally I love the DS not for the touch controls, but because it is the last place 2D games really exist.
