The World Map consists of essentially Angara (although the map confirms that the Northern Reaches of Prox and the Mars Lighthouse are actually part of the continent), a few tiny islands, and the northern part of the Great Eastern Sea... and that's it.
Granted, deep fissures seperate much of the other parts of the world, but in some ways, this is exactly a lot like the layout of the original Golden Sun world.
Hopefully, this means that, if there is a fourth installment, we can see how the rest of Weyard turned out.
hmmm, I do wonder indeed if Alex would also be in this game... I mean, it was never showed if alex was able to beat the wise one in the end... you only saw mt. aleph go down with alex on it... the character shot seems like him, but I dont really see a resemblance in the boy with the mask to be honest... besides, alex would've been over 50 years old by now, concidering the game takes place 30 years later, and everybody had grown up since then...
Alex should have been 17-20 during TLA, so he would only be in his 40s really, the same as Isaac, Garet and the rest of the main characters. Although Isaac doesn't look 40 and Kraden doesnt appear to have aged at all, so I don't think time flows the same as before since the Golden Sun rose.
*that was the comment of my cat walking over my keybord, now my real comment*
hmmm, well, in that case, shouldnt it be like in lemuria, for which the people aged once in a 100 years? since psynergy was preserved around that time... then isaac and the rest wouldnt have aged at all...
plus, I'm wondering where felix and sheba etc all have gone to... it isnt really explained :S
Well all of the playable characters have been announced, and Takeru isn't among them. Suzu and Uzume in TLA said that their descendant Takeru would come to the aid of Felix's descendent's in the future. Apparently none of the character's in this game are Felix's descendents, so maybe his son will be the main character in the next game.
I'm hoping so anyway. I find it kinda odd that the first 4 characters are descendants of Isaac's party (with the 4 other charactering not being related to the previous parties), while Felix's party's descendants aren't playable and haven't even been mentioned so far.
Theres a screenshot from DD that shows someone with hair sort of like his, with a sort of half-mask covering his eyes/nose. Theres some speculation that this character is him with new clothes. No idea why they would go out of their way to cover his face if its blatantly obvious that it's him XD.
