Golden Sun Missing In Action For 2010?

Nintendo revealed the releases dates this morning for its big Wii and DS games that will be out in North America this fall. Missing among them was one for Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. Is the game slipping? We're not sure.

We've had a request in to Nintendo today to find out, and will let you know. Unfortunately for Golden Sun fans, only December of 2010 still seems to have room on Nintendo's 2010 calendar. If the game doesn't get dated for then, we'll have to call it delayed.

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, a role-playing game sequel to a pair of adventures on the Game Boy Advance, all from Camelot Software, was first revealed as Golden Sun DS at E3 2009, given its new name at E3 2010 in June and was shown to reporters both at the show and in the weeks that followed in the form of a playable demo.

As recently as this E3, Nintendo pegged the game as a holiday 2010 release.

The game is expected to be part of Nintendo's Gamescom showcase in Germany this week. It is the only game from that Gamescom line-up — and the only upcoming, announced game targeted by Nintendo of America publicly for 2010 release — that the company's U.S. division did not mention in its line-up update this morning.


    Please don't go to the 3DS... I can't wait that long for this game!!! Although I'm sure that GS would look amazing in 3D

    better bloody not slip seeing as the ds hasn't had any decent releases for quite a while other then dq 9

    i was thinking of buying dragon quest 9 but didn't want to if GS was to be released this year... sad

    It officially has a 'holiday season 2010' release date, so If anything we'll see it in December. I doubt they'd delay it for the 3DS, from what i've heard about 3DS games, they'd literally have to rebuild the entire thing.

    I'm really looking forward to this game, I usually DESPISE JRPG's, but loved the GS series on GBA for some reason...

    Love those backgrounds, but the out of battle character models are looking a little fuggly.

    Definetly be checkin this one out!

    Matthew, Karis and Terrell? What about Takeru :/ And Matthew (if he's the protagonist) has the same hair as Isaac :)

      I'm pretty sure it has been confirmed some of the heroes shown in the trailers for the game so far are the children/ancestors of the characters from the original two games.

      I really want this game in December this year. It would be a great addition to my Dragon Quest and Lufia order on play asia. These games combined with the coming Okamiden and Pokemon generation 5 are making the DS look like an incredibly attractive console for RPG fans, particularly those from the SNES era.
