Two classic Golden Sun games are making their way to the Nintendo Switch, accessible exclusively to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members. Regarded as two of the best RPGs for the Game Boy Advance, these Golden Sun games will become available from January 17. The games were actually teased last year, when Nintendo first announced plans for Game Boy Advance games for Nintendo Switch Online.

Releasing both games simultaneously makes sense, as the original Golden Sun essentially tells half of the story, with The Lost Age completing it. The games follow four heroes on a quest to prevent a team of villains from lighting four elemental lighthouses. Golden Sun focuses on the heroes’ perspective, while The Lost Age is told from the villains’ viewpoint. Golden Sun originally released in 2001, and Golden Sun: The Lost Age followed in 2002.
