    I've seen numerous faked screen shots of Golden Sun 3 for DS and Wii, but I haven't heard any word of a real GS3.

    I sure hope there is going to be one, tho... [​IMG] Golden Sun is my favorite game of all time.

    lots of rumors but nothing official...
    The ending was pretty definite though so I don't expect a direct sequel, assuming there will actually be one.

    I really don't think the ending was definitive. There was a huge gap about Alex being a good buy or not, and the new game could be completely based on that.

    Or not. If it's an alternative world with an alternative Golden Sun and alternative monsters to make you stronger, I would also be very happy.

    I can't believe they haven't made a third already. Or at least announced one. This series is well loved by a lot, and has a big following. So I'm sure a third in the series would sell very well.

    It would be nice if they did decide to come out with another and I wouldnt be surprised either considering the general success of the first two.

    So I guess thats a definite maybe?

    Nope... They're going to take their sweet time and when its the turn of VII, they're going to start over on ninty's nextgen handheld.

    At least, thats what I expect them to do...

    golden sun 1 and 2 were ip's so camelot could just do away with them whether the general public cared not so...

    ..Golden Sun is really one of the BEST games on GBA, and probably one of the best in gaming history..
    The crew that worked on it really pushed GBA graphic all the way..I don't even want to think what could they do with the Nintendo DS capabilities..
    If they make third part in the same spirit of the first two, with the 3D graphic (like the FFIII) I believe that it could easly be no.1 game for NDS..

    Let's just hope for it..

    Golden Sun is still my favourite gameboy advance game (drilldozer coming a close second) The first one was great. The second one was good too, but nowhere near as good if you ask me. Cool summons though. I also liked the first game better because you get the better characters the whole game. Three of the main four are hot (Issac, Ivan, and Mia (I hate Garret's guts)) I'm a guy and I still think Ivan is hot. (seriously)

    As for a sequel, I for one hope there is not another Golden Sun ever. You may be thinking "What the crazy heck?!" but I believe it's for the best. Too many great games have had so many sequels and spin offs that end up making them suck. Golden Sun is a series I desperately don't want that to happen to. It was great as it was, and I don't think it needs anything more. Though I'm very pleased that it got a 4koma manga. (which I happen to have! (I could post some of the scans I made before if people want.))

    Golden Sun DS would stink because they would put unessesary, awkward touch screen features in it. The only other Golden Sun I want is Ivan or Mia as a playable character in Brawl. Even Issac would be okay. But if Garret or Felix gets a spot, I will be pissed off. Though Geno gets top priority. (From Mario RPG)

    Golden Sun goes down as the best RPG I've ever played.

    What's awesome is that they could have pushed it further. It has the most unoptimised code ever (according to the creator of GPSP)

    While this isn't much of a difference, or any less wrong, it is a pet peeve of mine.

    IVAN IS 15 DANG IT!!!!! EVERYONE GETS THIS WRONG!

    Check the instruction booklet! Sheba is 14. Ivan is 15. The whole internet gets this wrong! Look here
    Ivan Wiki
    And it's the game artist's fault for making young characters look older than they are. Much like how anime make older characters look like elementary school kids.

    Golden Sun is most definitely my favorite game ever. Followed closely by, you guessed it, Golden Sun: The Lost Age.

    I really hate when games get overdone and eventually crappy though. Leave well enough alone. If you need another fix, it's not a short experience, go back through both of them.

    I remember, far before I had heard of flash carts, a mate of mine had the original Golden Sun, he was pretty far into it, I played it, and I liked it.
    When I got my DS, I downloaded it, and It was so boring. Perhaps I should give it a chance.

    Boring? I don't know, any more so than any RPG? I've never tolerated the every few steps battles in RPGs besides in Golden Sun, so maybe my perspective sucks.
