How so? The series has sold over 2.5 million copies and the GBA games were some of the most popular on the platform.
Eh, the Mario & Luigi series performs better, hasn't shit the bed like Dark Dawn did, and a single game (Bowser's Inside Story) sells better than most JRPG series today. There's no real representation of that at all.

If Golden Sun wants to complain, it has to get in the back of a pretty long line.

The last successful and acclaimed game in the series was over a decade ago.

Pokémon is an important handheld franchise. Kirby and Fire Emblem are pretty important handheld series. Golden Sun is a footnote at this point.

Seems like down-B with Donkey Kong will be the best credit smasher in the game. Just sit in the middle and mash that button.

Edit: Duck Hunt time!

2.5 million copies for a whole series are not great numbers. Saying they were the most popular on the platform is an enormous overstatement as well, especially with a handheld as successful as the GBA.

For example, my GBA-toting friends and I had never heard of Golden Sun until Brawl's prerelease hype.

Agreed. I loved the first two games, but I have yet to finish Dark Dawn. That being said, it is sad if his AT was cut, but it's not a huge enough series to say a serious mistake was made.
