Would it continue with the old adventuring party?

They'd better bring back some of the older characters into the spotlight in order to make the plot feel any kind of authentic. Reason being, it feels all kinds of wrong to have the kids saving the world when you know there are much more capable warriors tasked with the same duty just sitting back.

Actually Dark Dawn already points some of the possible characters.
Like the brother of Himi (Venus) and the sister Rief (Mercury) (i dont remember the name of those characters).
It would be nice if the Mars adept was actually a Proxian, but perhaps you dont know what is that.

Personally since Dark Dawn had too many characters perhaps we get the same in the sequel.
Probably Felix and Piers are going to have a similar role of Isaac and Garet.

yeah, I wondered if GS 3 and 4 would parallel GS 1 and 2.

Have similar twists. GS1 and GS2 came as a pair, but had different protagonists.  So would GS3 and GS4 mirror that structure?

Actually you can can transfer your characters of GS1 to GS2. So, in GS1 you have 4 characters and in GS2 you have 8.
The nintendo DS game dont have any method to transfer your characters.

I'm not saying GS3 should have been a virtual shop game, but I'm surprised it didn't have an eShop component which it interfaced with, *at least* so you had someway of communicating with a sequel if you so wished.  I guess they're just going to skip the need for a code, and let everyone have the same perks (assuming they make a sequel).

Speaking as a newb, I think GS3 did a pretty good job of catching people up on what happened in the past.  I think the game did a lot of things well.

They'd better bring back some of the older characters into the spotlight in order to make the plot feel any kind of authentic. Reason being, it feels all kinds of wrong to have the kids saving the world when you know there are much more capable warriors tasked with the same duty just sitting back.

I like the format where the kids spend time "interning" with different older heroes.

I have three theories that would all seem plausible (if/when Camelot will stop focusing on their Mario Golf games [which i am not hitting on, as Advanced Tour is my favourite out of the series]). I would prefer the second or third, but the first wouldn't be too bad.

Theory number 1: Make a game that isn't at all related to the previous three, ala Final Fantasy. I personally don't like this choice very much, as I love the characters from the previous games. If worst comes to worst, though, I won't throw a big fit; however, to pull this off and make fans happy, they would have to stick with the roots of the original games and what made them so great: fantastic characters and gameplay that is unique from other jRPG games.

Theory number 2: Make a prequel surrounding the original closing of Psynergy and the creation of the lighthouses, Elemental Stones, and/or Alchemy Machines. It would provide a nice backdrop for future games, and give a base for the franchise, similar to Skyward Sword.

Theory number 3: This theory includes a bit of number 2. Introduce a new party that delves into the secrets of other Alchemy Machines. These machines, instead of creating a phenomenon that endangers the world, opens up a portal to the past. This idea could revolve around Darkness and Light, tie up some loose ends in the story (of which DD only made them worse), and use cameos for the original party and Dark Dawn's party. You might even be able to fight the original party in the past parts of the game.

There are my ideas. Love them. Hate them. Add more to them. I'm not too worried about how you vote. It's a theory for a reason.

Isaac. Lucario. Joshua. Possibly my favourite characters of all time.

They could just make an app to allow importing, similar to Pokemon Box.

Eh, I'll be happy so long as they don't just copy paste the characters from past games again.  I'm sick of playing as Squires and Masters.  I want something new.

Amen to that,

Personnaly, I want a real challenge this time, not this joking freaking easy, game. Serious, even the last boss was barely a challenge with the broken Megido, I just did not had time to the post-story bosses

Maybe they could give dark Adept some actual psynergy this time, because now we have very little reason to even call them adepts.
yeah, and some light adept too, but I don't see how they can do this, without changeing the current system in place....

Tell me about it!  Because those so-called "Dark Adepts" didn't cast anything, I'm still of the belief that there are no light and dark adepts or psynergy, especially since everything light or dark has an element attached to it as well.  If they want to convince us that these are things, they need to actually use them in battle, and give some mechanical support to them in the games.

Of course, I'm perfectly fine with not having Light and Dark, but... well, even having it would be better than what we got in Dark Dawn with it's crazy non-committal approach.

There is a certain charm to the first two that just isn't in Dark Dawn. I don't know what it is, but I think it's a combination of the art style, and the narrative elements. The narrative in the first two games was very good. It had an underlying serious tone, but also allowed for some realistic character interaction a la the silly moments, among other things. The characters were memorable. In Dark Dawn, I can't remember the name of anyone, anymore. Many characters are literally copy-pasted from the original series. Not just their class roles, but also their character traits. Really, I didn't feel anything special like I did when playing the first two. Maybe it's nostalgia, or that I was a kid and everything entertained me. Even so, I really think Dark Dawn flopped, in comparison to the first two.

Fox: Alright. Sounds good.  I agree it does seem a bit silly.  Sounds more of an April Fools type of thing. (Maybe having an ability for people to change their names limitless times specifically on April Fools is an idea.)

Fox: @ridiculous name for a week =  Hm? So, how many characters would you say should be the maximum to have a name "permanently"... or better yet... How many characters can a name have on registration?

June 20, 2017, 10:52:48 AM
Fox: It feels like the safest bet is to do Atrius's repointering system, and have something that organizes the tables done a bit separate... er... Well, it's something to think about.
June 20, 2017, 08:53:41 AM
Fox: HOWEVER... I can see other problems that might cause..... (Even with just the pointer in the MFT)  Meh. It's like you actually need a program to apply patches to do it appropriately.
June 20, 2017, 08:46:38 AM
Fox: ... So... What am I thinking? You ask? That the patches the point data after MFT, should have had pointers in the MFT themselves.... In that case, I can see a possibility of everything working smoothly even if space is needed to the very end of the ROM.
June 20, 2017, 08:37:22 AM
Fox: It's basically that everthink from the point of  editing, to the closest free space to the last entry's address would get repointed forward/backwards depending on space needed... and if space is mapped after patches are added, then that could mean the patches are also repointed. (:o)
June 20, 2017, 08:29:03 AM
Fox: Well, I mean if I map the space out the same way Atrius did it.
June 20, 2017, 08:26:41 AM
Fox: I have a hunch... when I add Map Palette editing the way I'm thinking about... it will cause all patches that repoint to after the MFT to break.... Especially if Atrius's editor wasn't used beforehand. Etc.
June 20, 2017, 07:27:17 AM
Fox: Hmmm... Let's see... regardless of method, I think I still do want to take some of Atrius's Space Manager code... Hmm.....

June 20, 2017, 07:07:19 AM
Fox: I'd go so far as to see.. even if you are trying to be accurate, there could still be inaccuracies... However, that one was just an example where it was clearly intentional.
