    well, after playing Goldensun Dark Dawn on the DS and getting to the ending ( :| WHY did it stop where it did?!) would it be good to say that the people behind the goldensun games are gonna be making the next one for the 3DS?

    no, this is not based on any rumors, just a thought of mine :3.

    Yes, they are making a new GS, and surely it will come on the 3DS.

    I don't know, I don't think Dark Dawn sold like hot cakes and it got significantly lower scores than GS and GS: TLA. It's Metascore is 7% lower than TLA and 12% lower than the original, for reference.

    I never thought the series was as compelling as people made it out to be. It was a good GBA RPG outing but very little stood out to me.

    Scores were lower because the game is actually a little below the first saga in quality.

    Awesome graphics and animation, music and such, but story starts bland and drags itself horribly slowly until the very end, there are more permanently missable important things than is tolerable in most existant RPGs, extreme lack of bosses, and a a few more.

    Still an awesome game though, but not as epic and vast as the other saga.

    How do either of those count as "significant"? If it were 20 or even 30% lower, then it'd be significant.

    Anyway, the sequel is a no brainer. The game still sold impressively well and they know the main complaints everyone had - it being too easy and lacking many of the features of the previous titles like Hard Mode and the Arena. Even if we forget that Takahashi admitted they're working on something and that he's excited to challenge himself with the project, they once said that the first two Golden Sun games were prequels to the main story and a much greater adventure. Nintendo isn't going to cancel an RPG series that hasn't had a release in seven years yet still pulls in more copies sold than anything most other RPG developers get (Dark Dawn sold about 300'000 I think and neither Atlus nor Nippon Ichi consistently get that much from their best sellers).

    Golden Sun has a huge cult following, so Nintendo will definitely support Camelot in the making of a sequel. Actually, this is also how Dark Dawn came to be.

    Somewhere maybe??o_o
    I expect to see a Golden Sun for the 3DS in the future.
    There is still a lot of going on in the story and I refuse to see it end like that

    Because 12% is a huge difference between scores on a metacritic, it can mean the difference of being mixed and critically acclaimed

    Even ignoring the fact that nobody in Japan actually cares about Metacritic, for them it's all about the Famitsu score and Dark Dawn scored exactly the same as The Lost Age in that respect, the first Golden Sun got a 91. Having a 79 is a really huge achievement considering the time it took for the game to come out and the glaring faults it still contained.

    12% isn't a big deal considering the original Golden Sun's entry on Metacritic is based on 33 less critic reviews than Dark Dawn.
