Story

After a magic boulder destroyed a village at the base of Mt. Aleph, a series of events occurred which placed the power of Alchemy in the wrong hands. Psynergy student Isaac and a group of friends set off to track down this mysterious gang in order to rescue their friend Jenna and to prevent them from re-activating the four lighthouses, which would spread Psynergy with potentially deadly effects, while along the way mastering this ancient magic.

Gameplay

The game is a typical RPG, with top-down adventuring and separate battles. Psynergy is used in both to battle enemies and to solve puzzles in the overworld. The player collects Djiinn which enhance the player's stats and can be used in battle. There are four different elemental types, with seven Djinn of each element. Although all four of the party members are predisposed towards one element type, Djinn can be traded amongst them to change their classes and abilities.

Legacy

Isaac appears as an unlockable Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Sequels

  • In 2003, Golden Sun: The Lost Age was released. A completed Golden Sun file can be connected to The Lost Age (through link cable or a password) in order to carry over the party's data. This is mostly due to the two originally being intended to be one game.
