New Golden Sun pays homage to original game’s commercial

Some new videos of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn have emerged that at first, really doesn’t mean much beyond what you see. But the folks at Tiny Cartridge have some excellent memory and realized that developer Camelot Software is actually paying homage to the original Golden Sun’s commercial.

The ad, above, is pretty weird but nothing out of the ordinary for a Nintendo commercial from back in the day. Opera house battle with a crystal chandelier dragon, whatever. Now the crystal dragon is an actual summon in Dark Dawn and there’s even a battle in an opera house in the new game. Pretty cool.

Old Golden Sun commercial finally makes sense thanks to Dark Dawn [Tiny Cartridge]
