    Recently Nintendo-Gamer interviewed Hiroyuki Takahashi of Camelot Software Planning. Here's the relevant excerpt from the article.
    In response to this, a group of people took the reins and formed Operation Sunrise, a group dedicated to getting the fan input to Camelot for this game to happen.

    If you played Dark Dawn, you'd know it was a rather poor excuse for a Golden Sun game; it was easy, you really got moved along places, there were 2 points of no return, etc etc etc. You'd also know that it ended on a cliffhanger with the words "The End?"

    You can sign the petition that Operation Sunrise set up here.

    It already has the backing of Operation Rainfall, which as you know successfully brought Xenoblade and The Last Story to North America (and I think they're getting Pandora's Tower here too, or close to it), so they've got a good ally in their corner.

    I just figured that I'd bring it up here, to try to help. :3

    The name Operation Sunrise is really vague, as I initially thought the topic was about a new Boktai game in the works until I saw the full title (you know, because of the sunlight mechanics from the first three games).

    LOL Same. I think Django is gone for good though.


    Moreover, I played all of the Golden Sun games and they're quite fun so I'd be up for a fourth entry into the series.

    Project Rainfall was also vague, but who cares? Golden Sun rules. *supports*

    I'd love to see another Golden Sun game. But it needs to fix the problems of Dark Dawn, namely, the game was too easy, the story didn't make much sense at the start and there was little character development.

    Please make another Golden Sun and please don't take an entire generation making it while you're at it. That's my hint.

    I didn't think a sequel was actually up in the air, I just figured it was an eventuality. You can't leave a bestselling series with a blatant cliffhanger and just move on to something else. Sure, the game was never going to perform as well as the massive ad campaign wanted it to, especially since they expected fans to be okay with a much easier game and a near-complete rewrite of the world's map and history while still calling itself a sequel, but that's hardly enough of an excuse considering that it did well anyways.

    Also, you've got the facts mixed about Operation Rainfall. While I certainly won't say that they're the ones who deserve all the credit, they helped get Xenoblade here, and The Last Story is less than 4 weeks from its US release. Pandora's Tower is the one that hasn't been scheduled for a US release.

    If Camelot's looking for fan signatures to get Golden Sun 4 off the ground, they're not getting my support. It just shows that after two years of thinking on it, they still haven't found a way to continue from the last game in a way they're confident enough to run with. You don't go into making a series of games without direction, and from what I'm seeing here, they don't have one. At this point I'm confident that GS4, if it's made, will actually be worse than Dark Dawn.

    such pessimism... when i signed the petition i made sure to say that it should be better than dark dawn and how to go about doing that (as have countless other signatures on the same petition). in addition, the article excerpt i posted shows that they find making a golden sun game to be a draining experience and they want to hear from the fans. that would be the motivation they need to get back on it (the drain would also partially explain the seven year wait between TLA and DD). also they didn't specifically ask for fan signatures (something you said as if they did), they just want to hear from the fans. a petition and the operation itself just serve as a handy organizational tool to that end.

    as for the fact mix-up, that's what i get for copypasting what i posted on other sites regarding this without fixing that error first. it has now been fixed.

    Oh yes you can; prequels are the best way to make a story more convoluted/break canon.

    Done. Signed. Donated. Whatever! I love Golden Sun and would love another in the series, though I doubt it will be able to live up the The Lost Age. Man that game was awesome.

    Damn, I'm sick of this developer bullshit.

    Step 1) Leave game on a cliffhanger.
    Step 2) Say that you don't know if you'll make another game unless there is enough fan support.
    Step 3) Decide that it's never enough.
    Step 4) ??????
    Step 5) Never make the game and call it good.

    Just make the game. I really hate developers these days. It's bad enough it took them over half a decade to develop a new Golden Sun game. At least have the decency to follow through.
