An epic adventure awaits in the game Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, the newest chapter in the Golden Sun series. The immense power of the Golden Sun has changed the world of Weyward, shifting continents and giving birth to new countries and even new species. What begins as a simple journey to rescue a friend asking for help in the woods turns into a dramatic quest to save the world from catastrophe as you are drawn into a world full of magical energy called Psynergy and elemental creatures called Djinn. This new generation of heroes must even unravel the mystery behind Psynergy Vortexes that are spreading across the world and sucking away all the elemental Psynergy from Weyward.

-Collect over 70 elemental Djinn to gain additional abilities, including the power to summon mighty deities that unleash devastating attacks and intense damage in battle. Each Djinn also has its own unique attack and will affect character classes and status, adding a unique layer of strategy and depth to battles and summoning.
-Journey across a vast continent where you will explore many cities and ancient ruins as you follow an epic tale about rising empires and dead civilizations. You will mature from lowly apprentices to powerful masters as you begin to realize the catastrophe that faces world around you.
-Cast dozens of Psynergy spells to blast enemies with fire, wind, water, and earth based attacks while in combat. Use Psynergy to navigate through puzzling dungeons and overworld environments that will have you flinging fireballs to burn away obstacles, freezing water to raise platforms, or throwing whirlwinds to create suspension bridges out of floating objects.
-The story takes place 30 years after the Golden Sun Effect occurs, the final event in the previous Golden Sun title. The main characters are direct descendants of the previous game’s heroes.
-Intuitive touch-screen control also has been implemented throughout the game to give players a more tactile connection when controlling character movements or releasing magical Psynergy.
