Golden Sun Games to Be Available on Nintendo Switch Online

Revisit the Classic Golden Sun Titles and Unlock New Features Starting January 17, 2024

Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members are in for a treat as the beloved Game Boy Advance RPGs, Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, make a triumphant return on January 17, 2024. Developed by Camelot Software Planning, the masterminds behind iconic titles like Shining Force, Mario Golf, and Tennis, these classics are hailed as some of the finest RPGs in gaming history.

Originally released in 2001/02 and 2002/03, respectively, both titles showcase the magical journey of young heroes Isaac, Garet, Ivan, and Mia in a quest to safeguard their world, Weyard, from the ancient power of Alchemy. Switch Online members can relish the nostalgic experience and dive into the engaging narrative that spans humble villages, mystical peaks, and challenging dungeons.

One distinctive feature of the original games was the ability to transfer data seamlessly from Golden Sun to The Lost Age. The good news is that this feature is fully supported through communication and password methods, as confirmed by Nintendo’s Japanese website. Players can also engage in online battles using the Switch Online service, adding an exciting dimension to the classic RPG experience.

In “Golden Sun: The Lost Age,” players embark on a dramatic sequel that follows Felix, a character who initially played the role of an antagonist in the first game. Alongside Adepts Jenna and Sheba, and the wise scholar Kraden, Felix’s mission is to prove that Alchemy can be a force for salvation rather than destruction.

Both games offer a captivating blend of co-op gameplay, turn-based combat, puzzle-solving, open-world exploration, and RPG-inspired character upgrades. The introduction of Djinn, mysterious creatures aiding the heroes in harnessing Psynergy for potent spells and attacks, adds an extra layer of strategy to the gameplay.

As Nintendo invites players to rediscover the enchanting world of Weyard, the timeless appeal of “Golden Sun” and “Golden Sun: The Lost Age” promises an immersive experience for both nostalgic fans and newcomers alike. The captivating narrative, unpredictable gameplay, and magical allure of these classics are set to cast their spell once again on the Nintendo Switch platform. Are you ready to embark on this unforgettable journey?
