Golden Sun DS out this Christmas

Action RPG subtitled Dark Dawn.

Nintendo has said that the Golden Sun RPG title promised for DS at its E3 conference last year has a new name and will be released this Christmas.

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn is a good-looking 2D action RPG that builds on Camelot Software Planning's enjoyable Game Boy Advance titles.

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn picks up 30 years after the first two games, and it's been a conveniently tumultuous time in the world of Weyard. "Continents have shifted. New countries have emerged. New species have appeared. But the world is now imperilled by a new threat." Do go on.

"Psynergy Vortexes, which suck the elemental Psynergy from both the land and power-wielding Adepts alike, are spreading across the world."
