Golden Sun: Dark Dawn takes place 30 years after the first two games in the series on the Gameboy Advance, and something Camelot did was make sure ties were maintained to the originals. Dark Dawn’s protagonist, for example, is Matthew, the son of Isaac from the original Golden Sun.
Curious to see what the original protagonist of Golden Sun looks like, 30 years later, as compared to his younger self?
Matthew’s friends are relatives of older Golden Sun characters, too. Tyrell is the son of Garet, while Karis is the daughter of Ivan. Other party members in Dark Dawn, too, have ties to previous characters.
