    Amidst all the hype about the 3DS, we should not forget that the regular 'ol Nintendo DS is still alive and kicking. And lest we forget this fact, Nintendo has provided two new gameplay videos of Golden Sun Dark Dawn to remind us of this! One is in Japanese and one in English.



    And of the Japanese version, which contains some different gameplay and new characters (spoiler tagged for space savings, not for actual spoilers)-


    Golden Sun Dark Dawn takes place 30 years after the events of the original two Golden Sun games on GBA. You play as several of the children of the some of the original heroes. You may spot Isaac and Garet in the trailer, they apparently join your party for at least part of the game (apparently during the early stages of the story). You'll also see that Kraden the alchemist sage makes a return as well (though for some reason, he doesn't seem to have aged any despite already being a very old man in the original games, though maybe there's an explanation for this).

    Golden Sun DS will be releasing October 28 in Japan as Ougon no Taiyou: Shikkokunaru Yoake. Then keep an eye on its US counterpart hitting next month on November 29. It's nice to see the game being released in both regions fairly close to one another. I wonder if the Japanese version even holds an English translation inside its data waiting to be unlocked? This is becoming more common lately, so perhaps, we'll see...

    Oh one more thing, another villain has appeared via silhouette form. Wonder who it could be. *locks mouth shut* [​IMG]

    A very epic beard. [​IMG]

    Here are a few character artworks for the hell of it-
    Isaac, Kraden, and Eoleo-

    Eoleo was a little baby in Lost Age for those who don't recall. He is the son of the pirate named Briggs. Eoleo had psynergy powers in the game when very few people in the world had it. Looks like he's going to join the team and become a playable character this time, now that he's all grown up. Here are some more new ones-

    Those last three appear to be new characters. Stella, Harumani, and Himi are what their profiles say. Stella looks like she might be a werewolf or something...

    Can't wait for this. I was already assuming that it would never come out, since the last time I heard about it was around March/April, and it could have been an April Fool's joke [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is going to be awesome! [​IMG] *crams out old GS2 pwd*

    It surely is him. Compare the silhouette with his art from the first games, the hair matches almost perfectly, as does the cape-

    Also, look at the Japanese trailer at around 1:23, there is a blue haired masked character to the left of Spade (the Proxian-looking badass). That might be him...

    This looks fantastic! Very excited for this - and very pleased that the English language release is so close to the Japanese one. I loved the two GBA versions (especially the first GS - it was a much superior game), and have been looking forward to this ever since rumours of a GameCube version surfaced about six or seven years ago.

    It wouldn't surprise me - however, consider how quickly Pokemon Black and White's anti-piracy got circumvented.

    Hey, did you notice the brand new video at Amazon? I don't think it has been ever linked here.

    Just click under the picture of the item on the right, "video".

    And I think I probably know who's Garet now after seeing this one, but it's impossible! He can't be the guy with the dark brown hair and mustache, it totally doesn't look like him! Where's his red hair and fiery countenance??

    I can't wait. It's been seven painful years since The Lost Age came out. The Golden Sun games are still my favourite RPG series. I'm looking forward to this one. I hope it's region free (ie, no pointless DSi enhanced edition) so that I can import it from the US.

    I think it's Alex. But I do wonder, how did he survive the sinking Mt. Aleph?
