Two classic Game Boy Advance role-playing games as you should know are on their way to the Nintendo Switch in the coming week and they are 2001’s Golden Sun and 2002’s Golden Sun: The Lost Age. The games in question will either be available on January 17th as per this very tweet or on the 16th according to this press release (presumably this very confusion is timezone-related, and we here have followed up with Nintendo for clarification). But regardless of the exact date as to when they will be ready, they will reportedly be available as part of a Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription.

Nintendo’s Press Release Describing the New Development

We have already known that at least one of these games was coming to the Switch ever since Golden Sun made kind of a surprise appearance as part of Nintendo’s original announcement regarding Game Boy games coming to its subscription service. But that has taken roughly a year for that tease to pay off. If it is that you are unfamiliar with the titles, here is how the press release of Nintendo describes them:

“From the humble village of Vale to the mystical peaks of Mt. Aleph, the Golden Sun game sets magic-wielding young heroes Isaac, Garet, Ivan, and Mia on a quest to prevent the ancient power of Alchemy from being unleashed on their home world of Weyard.

Their adventure takes them through towns, caverns, and dungeons as they face wily enemies, confounding puzzles, and epic challenges that push their magical abilities (Psynergy) to their absolute limits. Along the way, they get help from mysterious creatures known as the Djinn, who aid the heroes in harnessing their Psynergy to unlock potent spells and unstoppable attacks.”

“A direct sequel to Golden Sun, the Golden Sun: The Lost Age game presents a dramatic shift as the story now follows Felix – a young Adept (or magic user) who was the antagonist of the first game – on his mission to prove that Alchemy isn’t a destructive force, but one that could save Weyard after all. Forced to join Felix on his quest are Adepts Jenna and Sheba and the wizened scholar Kraden, all of whom struggle to keep Felix on task as powerful and enigmatic new challenges face them all.”

Nintendo Life Notes That the Releases Should Also Support the Multiplayer Battle Mode of the Games

And in addition to the single-player campaigns, Nintendo Life also notes that the releases should also support the multiplayer battle mode of the games. And from the looks of the Japanese website of Nintendo, you will be able to effectively transfer game data between the two titles through either a password or an emulated link cable.
