Zelda, now with added steam train

It’s the Game Developers Conference in America’s own San Francisco at the moment, and real websites remembered that King of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, gave a keynote today.

It’s all right though, it doesn’t look like much of significance happened. Especially for game developers, who should surely have been the target audience. Never mind.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks But! There’s a new Zelda game for the Nintendo DS on the way. It’s called The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, and features a steam train. This is excellent news, as my rubbish screengrab shows (scroll down this page to watch the video).

From what Nintendo is saying – which isn’t much, as far as I can see – it’s going to be an awful lot like Phantom Hourglass, albeit with the aforementioned steam train. STEAM TRAIN. I’m not entirely sure why it looks so cool to my eyes, but it does.


Jake has been here since the beginning, with hundreds of reviews and countless other guff to his name. These days, not so consistent.

  • Matt or Jake, or whoever twittered – get a DS Lite. At least you can use an R4 cart then.

  • Me! I’m not going to go for the stinking DS Lite. WPA2 compatibility is another thing pushing me towards the DSi.

  • The DSi is a step backwards man. No GBA slot, no piracy… I mean… no.. err..

    Well yeh, I suppose if you’re a moral, honest person who buys his DS games, go ahead with the DSi.

  • oh there are carts out that work on the dsi. the acekard 2i comes to mind. no one’s quite sure if the current version works with european consoles/new firmware though, so you might want to hold off on it for a bit. and i reckon dsiware makes up for the no gba slot thing, especially if the rumours about gba games being released on the service are true.

    (although the dsi doesnt support wpa2 in existing ds games, so if thats the only reason you’d be getting one, you might as well not bother)
