Game Codes


Here's another useful page of information.
Game codes, huh? That sure is useful.
Yeah. Remembering all those button combinations can be tricky.
The webmistress is updating a lot lately.
Well, you know, waiting for more information on the third game is really boring.
Yeah, it sure is...


Naming Extra Characters

At the naming screen, hit select three times. In Golden Sun, this will let you name Garet, Ivan and Mia, while in Golden Sun: The Lost Age, it is used to rename Jenna, Sheba and Piers.

When you are naming Mia or Piers, depending on your game, press: Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Right, Down, Left, Up, Select.

If done properly, you will be able to name Felix, Jenna and Sheba in Golden Sun or Isaac, Garet, Ivan and Mia in TLA.


Return to Last Sanctum

At the loading screen, select the file where you wish to return your party to the last sanctum you visited. Hold L and Start, then press A.


Soft Resetting

You can "hard reset" by turning the handheld on and off, but there's an even quicker way to restart the game. Simply hold A, B, Start and Select.


Send Option

Only in the first game. When you have completed the game and have a "Clear Data" file, then you can use the Send option. To unlock it, at the menu screen, hold the R button and Left on the D-Pad, then press Start. A new "Send" option will then appear.


Sound Test

The Lost Age only. In battle mode, there is a lady to the left of the room (she accuses you of not working out much) However, if you hold the R button when you speak to her, she will say something different and then allow you to listen to various tracks from the games. If you load battle mode using Clear Data, then you will be able to listen to a complete track, as certain tracks will be unavailable without the Clear Data,


Difficulty Modes

After beating the game once and saving the Clear Data, you can then start a new game and this time you will have the option of choosing Easy Mode or Hard Mode. Easy Mode will transfer the levels, EXP and stat changes of the party in the Clear Data to the new file, as well as their money. Hard Mode, however, will not carry anything over from the Clear Data and the enemies in Hard Mode are much stronger.


Battle Themes

After Isaac's party has joined you, it is possible to change the music you hear when battling. If you have Felix in your party, you will hear the regular battle theme. However, if Felix is not in the party and Isaac is, then you will hear the battle music from the first game instead. If neither Felix nor Isaac are in the party and Jenna is, you will hear her battle theme which was originally heard in the prologue. Taking all three of them out will keep the regular battle theme.
