  • flameraver64

    I want my Golden Sun 3DS sequel!

    • John Pena

      The game kind of end in a cliffhanger,

    • RmanX1000

      Gotta say, i wouldnt be against that. Or Isaac being playable in Smash 4,

      • Ric Vazquez

        Agreed with both of you, me wants.

    • artemisthemp

      Is Golden Sun even available on Estore for 3DS?

      • Shuga Suenaga

        “eShop” and no its not available :v

  • John Pena

    freaking love Golden Sun.

  • Chim_era

    Golden Sun is my favorite game of all time along with his successor. This game truly changed me from a casual gamer to an dedicated player of all RPG’s. I just hope the ds version gets a sequel, because while it was not a bad game I had the feeling it wasn’t a good GS game. They need to set some things straight

    • MaximDualBlade

      number 3 just created more plotholes and they even forgot about the main theme with a mocking “The End…?” at the end XD

      • grevlinghore

        I heard that Dark Dawn had points of no return, as in: you´d reach points in the game where you would be unable to go back where you came from. I also heard that it was easy to level up to the point of overpoweredness, and those two factors were enough to make me just not want Dark Dawn at all. I ended up kind of ignoring its existence.

        I like to think that there´s still hope for a third installment of Baten Kaitos though. It´s not like cult classics haven´t been graced with new installments when we least expect it, and Monolithsoft are clearly alive and kicking still. Plus, the Wii U gamepad could actually be incorporated in a meaningful way in that type of game…

        • MaximDualBlade

          A new baten kaitos with a independent story to the gamecube ones and references to those games. I could even like a “univeral rewind” and remake the story of the first 2 games in one game. With a timeskip in the middle and tons of new stuff.

          tldr: I would buy a wiiu for a new baten kaitos

          • Chim_era

            A new Baten Kaitos would be more than welcome. Those games were like playing a dream. Although I’m not sure I would buy a Wii U for it. I bought the gamecube for Tales of Symphonia and almost every other console for a specific game. The Wii U has to come with something super special because I just can’t see it’s merits.

          • MaximDualBlade

            A really beautiful game. Mira looked just like a dream. And the games were full of life and backstory.

  • Combo

    Reminds me of the old Wii VC days, when we would regularly get five or six games a week. Oh how times have changed.

  • Go2hell66

    Battle Network 1-6 and you can have my money

  • JoJo_718

    Looks definitely good, but I’d prefer them on the 3DS too.

  • Golden sun is amazing!!!

    • grevlinghore

      So very true.

  • powerlessbump

    A rom of a port that was ported from an already existing rom on the eshop.

    I wonder if it will get deeper.

    • Eventually, when they release a compilation of the Wii U-specific ROMs on a disc. (And then put the compilation up for download on eShop.)

  • GH56734

    You might want to add Advance Wars was also announced for Wii U VC in Europe

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I really hope we get the Summing knights games on there too and Moth…I mean father 3

  • Junko Enoshima

    I want Mother 3.

    On the 3DS and Wii U virtual console. Someday.
