This game is the first of its kind, using a light sensor that attaches to the GBA to store energy from various light sources. The more energy the sensor receives, the stronger your character in the game becomes.

  • Real time clock system changes the game environment depending on what time it is
  • Certain monsters and creatures can only be destroyed by using sunlight
  • From renowned producer and game designer Hideo Kojim

Editor's Note:

The title is a loose wording of the Japanese words for "Our Sun".
