"Golden Sun (黄金の太陽 Ōgon no Taiyō) is a series of fantasy role-playing video games developed by Camelot Software Planning and produced by Nintendo. Golden Sun follows the story of a group of magically-attuned "adepts" who are charged with preventing the potentially destructive power of alchemy from being released as it was in the past. It later focuses on the descendants of the original heroes. In this strain, Golden Sun follows the traditional RPG theme of wandering around and fighting.
The original series, Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, were released in 2001 and 2003, respectively, for the Game Boy Advance platform. Following a six-year hiatus, Golden Sun DS was announced at the Nintendo E3 2009 conference on June 2, 2009, for release in 2010 for the Nintendo DS platform. In Golden Sun, the player plays as Isaac and his friends as they set off into the world of Weyard to prevent a group of anti-heroes from releasing alchemy to the world. Golden Sun: The Lost Age, however, follows the plight of the surviving members from the previous game's antagonists as they continue to pursue the release of alchemy into the world by means of lighting four elemental lighthouses. Golden Sun DS follows the path of the descendants of the previous two game's heroes.
Golden Sun has been widely lauded as among the best games for the Game Boy, with the first game receiving Nintendo Power's Best GBA Game of 2001 and ranking in IGN's Readers Choice Top 100 games ever. The Lost Age performed even better than its predecessor, ranking 78 on IGN's Readers Choice Top 100 games ever."
