Only a couple of hours before Nintendo's E3 media briefing
yesterday, rumors of a new Golden Sun
game for the DS began to spread like a fast-moving cancer, traveling through the internet's lymphatic system, taking over gaming blogs and forums. Even Joystiq, the wind beneath our wings, fell victim to the malignant screenshots that were supposedly leaked from a "secret press gathering" by person-in-the-know gobo_4227
To your right, you'll see one of those supposed screenshots of Golden Sun: The Sooth Sayer
compared with promotional artwork that was released for Golden Sun: The Lost Age
back in 2002. Unless you count the bloom filter and "Touch to Start" text, the images are exact twins. The fact that we've heard no official mention of the new RPG
-- or any other Camelot-developed title for either Nintendo console -- whilst E3
continues makes this rumor seem even more unconvincing.
