Golden Sun: Dark Dawn Features Hyperlinked Dialogues: the Internet Must be So Proud

RPGs and other games with rich fictional histories have long had a select few fans that could cite obscure trivia like they were just telling the time, like the famous Red Shirt Guy. You’d think that with such voluminous amounts of fake facts (fakts?) to keep track of, games like WoW or Elder Scrolls would have come up with this innovation. But no, it had to come from a little Nintendo DS game. What innovation am I talking about? Hyperlinked conversations, of course:

Camelot Software, developers of upcoming game Golden Sun: Dark Dawn – the first DS game of the Golden Sun series – were smart enough to include links to information about people, places and events when they are mentioned in conversations. In the example shown above, tapping Matthew’s name would make the encyclopedia entry to the right pop up on the top screen of the DS. Simple but extremely practical, especially if you’re new to the series. This is one feature that needs to be emulated industry-wide. It’s a shame Golden Sun’s doesn’t have hyperlinks within the hyperlinked encyclopedia entries, though.

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn will be released on November 29, 2010. You can pre-order it on Amazon for $35 (USD).
