ONM: Golden Sun Preview

Perhaps the most reassuring sign that Nintendo is serious about restoring some of the hardcore faithful's wavering confidence is the remake of a much loved RPG series last seen some six years ago.

Golden Sun was released in 2002 on the Game Boy Advance and since then anyone who played it has quietly pined for its near perfect blend of gorgeous looks and intelligent, refined gameplay which managed to keep the interest high for all of its 30-hour quest. Its sequel, The Lost Age, was released a year later, and while it was essentially a carbon copy of the original it was still highly regarded. Both were a throwback to the Japanese-style RPG's glory days on the SNES. So even though its announcement carried little fanfare and the shortest of trailers, ONM saw enough to be convinced that Golden Sun DS looks to be picking up exactly where The Lost Age left off.
