    THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN SOLVED. DISREGARD THIS THREAD.
    If you're wondering, it was Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals.


    I'm trying to remember the name of a DS game I played a month or two ago... I somehow got a bunch of games deleted off of my Micro SD card a month ago and that's the only game I couldn't remember the name of.

    WHAT I REMEMBER:
    -It's on the Nintendo DS (which is why I said DS game, above. And why we're in the NDS Section)
    -It was like Zelda (Action/Adventure game)
    -Graphics were 3D
    -Has a NA release
    -Camera angle for gameplay was NOT top-down
    -You fought alone, not in a party
    -In my opinion, all characters in the game look like they should've been in a Tales game
    -Story was forgettable but good enough to make people want to find out what happens
    -Story was also stereotypical (Bad guy makes bad things happen, good guy from a small town is literally destined to go defeat bad guy)
    -Either the game had character creation or armor showed up on the character model (Nevermind, I was somehow thinking of a different game when I typed this line.)
    -There were airships and other typical RPG elements
    -The music was wonderfully composed
    -Wasn't too long or too short
    -No touch screen controls, but both screens were utilized for visuals at times
    -The main character could be renamed
    -The main antagonist was around and established as the main antagonist from the get go

    GAME IS NOT:
    -Lunar Knights
    -The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
    -The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
    -Tales of Innocence
    -Tales of Hearts
    -Tales of the Tempest
    -Soma Bringer
    -Scurge: Hive
    -Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates
    -Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time
    -Solatorobo: Red the Hunter
    -Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days
    -Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded
    -Nostalgia
    -Metroid Prime
    -Brave Fencer Musashi
    -Star Fox Adventures

    COULD BE:
    -Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow

    I wouldn't think so, since that's a straight up RPG and the game I'm looking for is an action/adventure (or an action-RPG, depending on how you class these things)

    All of those are Gamecube games and a PS1 game. I specifically said it was a DS game AND we're in the NDS forum.

    From the stuff I'm watching right now of this game, there are touch screen controls, and the game I'm thinking of doesn't have touch screen controls.

    I've also been very reluctant to play this game since it's a sequel to another game on a console I don't have...

    It could be, however.

    Sounds almost exactly like Final Fantasy IV, though since you said it's like Zelda, stereotypical, and has a forgettable story then it's probably not.

    I don't think Avalon Code has Airships and the like...

    Dragon Quest 9 and Final Fantasy IV aren't like it...

    I'm really starting to wonder if I'll ever find this game...
