Previewing Golden Sun DS
DS 0 CommentsGolden Sun DS was announced at today’s E3 2009, and Gaming Union was able to play a demo of the game on the show floor. The game could be controlled either by the stylus using the touch screen, or the directional pad for those Golden Sun players who want to play the game as if it was a Game Boy Advance game. After getting used to the controls and moving over a bridge, the demo switched to a pre-made video that showed off snippets of Golden Sun DS’s gameplay.
The battle engine looks to be similar to the Game Boy Advance games, using the behind-the-character point of view. However, the graphics are now done in true 3D instead of faux-3D that the previous two games used. The four elemental Djinn (Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind) are confirmed, as well as the summons Ramses and Atalanta. The story will take place after the events of Golden Sun: The Lost Age and will follow the story of the descendants of the heroes from the previous two games.
For fans of the first two games, Golden Sun DS feels like a game right up their ally. For people who aren’t fans, they will have to wait till later this year when Nintendo is likely to release more information about the game.
