I’d like to start this review with a simple promise: I will not make a single solar pun or reference. It’s just too easy to make comments like that, and I’m sure that most other reviewers have fallen right into that trap. After a while, it’s just tiring. So, here it is, a straightforward review of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.

Here’s something to be thankful for. Nintendo announced today that Golden Sun: Dark Dawn will be released on November 29, just days after Thanksgiving in the United States.
Set 30 years after the events of the first two Golden Sun titles, Dark Dawn begins with an attempt to save a friend and progresses toward saving the entire world. Playable characters can collect up more than 70 different Djinn and use their elemental powers to solve puzzles.

In a move sure to please fans of the series, Nintendo revealed a release date and a subtitle for the upcoming DS continuation of the Golden Sun series. Now known as Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, the game will be on store shelves this holiday season, though no more exact date was given.
E3 may be over, but there’s lots of media for you to feast your eyes on today including the first piece of concept art for the upcoming (and still unnamed) Zelda game for the Wii. You’ll also find Spectrobes Origins, Golden Sun DS, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky, Muramasa, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.

One of the more unexpected announcements at Nintendo’s E3 conference today was that of Golden Sun DS. Though the GBA games Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age are fondly remembered by many gamers, Camelot’s lack of interest in extending the series has long been a major part of series discussion, so this announcement comes as something of a surprise. Details on Golden Sun DS are scant at the moment, though we do have an amazingly tentative release date of “next year,” and a promise that the game will feature 3D graphics and an entirely new adventure.
