The small village of Vale sits at the foot of Mount Aleph. This mountain is the most sacred peak in the continent of Angara. The Sol Sanctum-a temple on the Mountain is guarded by the Elders of Vale. The Sol Sanctum contains a seal that controls the powerful ancient science of Alchemy. The seal has been broken and if the powers of Alchemy fall into the wrong hands, the world will come to an end. And, of course, the powers of Alchemy have fallen into the wrong hands. It is up to Isaac and three of his friends to restore order to the world. This game is developed by Camlet and published by Nintendo.

Golden Sun ends right in the middle of the story. This may be a tactical move by Nintendo to keep the same interest for the up-coming sequel(s). Golden Sun 2, or rather Golden Sun: The Lost Age, is set for release on June 28th, 2002, but only in Japan. North American residents are going to have to wait for as long as christmas before they can pick it up. No worries though, I can sure wait for this game. This series is by far the best RPG on the GBA, so I think I'll play some of the hot new GameCube titles coming out in the meantime.
