With the historical Isaac for Smash Ultimate thread about to close I think it'd be nice if we can have this thread as a way to keep the speculation going about whatever could lead to a future installment in the Golden Sun series and also just a great way to have somewhere to talk about this awesome franchise on this website. So gather forth adepts as we continue the talk about this beloved now 20 year old JRPG franchise and create more memories going forward.

You can also check on the latest developments, events and fanart through the Isaac's Allied Adepts Twitter account and r/GoldenSun

Here's hoping the sun rises again sooner than later on a criminally overlooked series of Nintendo's. It's a testament to the series and the fanbase to have endured this far on little more than the dedication and hope, and yet still have a voice.

Much admiration for those who aren't going to give up until the games return and the series receives the attention it warrants, whether inside of Smash or not.

As I stated in the Isaac thread a good couple of months back, with the return of Advance Wars, I can very easily picture a return of Golden Sun happening. Both had similar big fan bases demand their return... And the Switch seems to gather strongly for both remakes, and RPGs, and remakes of RPGs. I think it's highly likely we'll see a remake of both the GBA titles at the very least.

Howdy new Isaac thread.

And yeah, I really do hope we see Golden Sun arise at some point, ideally while it could still be relevant for Smash. Seeing stuff like Famicom Detective Club and Advance Wars come back give me some faith, but we will see I suppose.

Exactly this! If these games can come back after years of absence, Golden Sun definitely has a great chance to come back too. Especially now that Camelot has Tennis and Golf out of the way. They most likely been working on their new project by now.

Hello everyone I didn't had the chance to say in the newcomer thread that it has been years of fun with all of you. Been here since Smash 4 Era and the lack of GS content back day was really hard. Then I went in the ultimate thread and was here for the rathalos Pic (remember I pointed that Link could be Isaac since he is silent protagonist, Marth is Like Garet with the "Fire" Emblem) and of course the girnch leak. All that to say even if I didn't believed in Isaac getting in I will still support GS and this thread is perfect to continue talking with all of you.

As many of you said I'm sure we will get something new with GS. Hopefully this will come sooner than later. Anyway count me in for being here ^^

Star Hill. Why do you ask?
i just wanted to let you know you can vote a character for smash crusade
Having Isaac would be great there
I actually discovered Isaac file back in the old version of Smash crusade file mugs pictures which I had to look into alongside many others but I don’t know if Isaac is still under development since that version was older than 2015

Hey ! Last week, I went into a shop and found Golden Sun : The Lost Age ! Now I have all the - alas so small - collection, and I will finally know what happens after this goddamn cliffhanger from the first game !

But before, I have to finish Resident Evil Zero and Dragon Quest XI...

Yeah Golden Sun is the most likely pick for their next project, they've expressed wanting to make RPGs again as recently as 2017 and the success of Metroid Dread and existence of Advance Wars Reboot Camp, plus the success of JRPGs on Switch does help it's prospects.
Emily Rogers did say this at the start of the month so you guys can ponder on what the future will be

Well the inference here seems to be that despite Nintendo still caring about GS, they're keeping Camelot on Mario sports games since they're lucrative. Emily appears to be implying a new dev would have to take the reins of GS, which would mean that Camelot's next project isn't likely to be that.

If you want to look at the parallels to Dread and AW, new devs are leading those games as opposed to those who originally handled them.

So then the question becomes who would be the ones to do the honors..?

After Wayforward doing AW, who knows.

I just hope, should the time come, it's a dev with a strong enough track record. Nintendo's oversight helps but GS can't afford any more setbacks.

Interesting comments there if true. One would think that some kind of arrangement would be workable where another company works on GS but the Takahashis have some creative control. In such a scenario I wouldn't be too concerned about who is doing most of the dev work.
