The latest issue of the official UK Nintendo magazine Nintendo Gamer AKA NGamer — the successor to my favorite gaming magazine ever N64/NGC Magazine — has an interview with Co-head of Camelot Software Planning (the other head being his brother Shugo) about their latest game Mario Tennis Open, in which they were asked about Golden Sun 4.

After being asked if there would be a sequel after the third game in the Golden Sun series ended in a cliffhanger, Hiroyuki Takahashi replied that if enough fans ask for a new Golden Sun, it could happen!

  • To quote Mr. Takahashi’s answer:

    “A big reason for us making RPGs comes from the requests from all the people who have enjoyed our RPGs in the past. Perhaps if there are enough Nintendo users asking for another game in the Golden Sun series, then this will naturally lead to the development of such a game.” -Takahashi

    “I’m very pleased that you enjoyed Dark Dawn. RPGs take a very long time to make and need a lot of effort. As you will appreciate if you have played the game, the number of ideas that went into the story was rather substantial. When writing a story like that for a Golden Sun game, I really feel like I am pouring my soul into it and when I am finished, I always feel really drained. Everyone else working on the project also really devoted themselves to it, treating it like their life’s work. So it really is a huge encouragement to us to get a positive reaction from the people who play the game.

    Speaking personally from the perspective of the story, I think that honestly it may not be so likely because Golden Sun really requires a full effort to be put in. But of course, if there are enough people saying that we really must create another game, then we may just have to listen to them. Still, you would need to give me a bit of time to work on ideas for the story before we could release a fourth game in the series.”

    For a look back at the third Golden Sun game, here’s the trailer.

    After Golden Sun (2001) and Golden Sun: The Lost Age (2003) on Game Boy Advance, and the last game Golden Sun: Dark Dawn (2010) on Nintendo DS; it sounds like it’s about time for a new game in the series.
