I had a bit more fun playing Phantom Hourglass over Twilight Princess, so hopefully this game shouldn't disappoint me.

To be honest, I'm looking forward to this.  I don't think it'll be near as goos as any other 3D Zelda, but hopefully it's better than PH.

how the game plays out with phantom + link mingling, it leads me to believe that there will be a 2-player option :3

I don't really look forward for this game, but maybe it'll amaze us with some cool glitches and a quite good story.
We'll see, but regardless if it's good or not, I'll buy it. ^^

PH, from what I hear got very few things bad in the game, which is awesome considering how such a control situation was the first of it's kind really. Those few issues Nintendo learned from, and can fix in ST I bet. Looking forward to this game a lot. Some day I will get PH...

Spirit Tracks is has a release date for Europe now.

The game will be out on the 11th December. Only 4 days difference, holy crap, I won't miss out discovering the speed tricks :P.

I don't think there will be that many speed tricks in all fairness. I mean, the only major break in PH is doing the dungeons in the wrong order, fucking up stuff and saving time...

there is a few in-dungeon speed tricks but nothing giant....

There was one that skips bombs in the Temple of Winds but the con was that the normal bombs were required to get pass the blocks on the Temple of Courage. A huge overworld that requires a ship/train is the biggest barrier of sequence breaking.

A special limited edition tin for you Europeans.  Also notice the wi-fi circle on the box which was missing from the boxart posted a few weeks ago.

And Swordless, don't be such a hater :(.

Oh yes :)

Perhaps we could do a mini tournament with Wi-fi Multiplayer if it ends up like Phantom Hourglass.
And it's Gamestation exclusive so Amazon is a no no I guess :(.

Hopefully the WiFi playing will be good compared to PH.
And hopefully the game itself will be better as well, but I kinda doubt it :P.

I hate the WiFi because everytime I beat someone they always quit. I only have 4 mor "Big Plays" left to do. Also it isn't really fun because it is nothing like the main game.



Also by the demo at E3 it shows me that their will be something like the Temple of the Ocean King. That is the one of the reasons that I have only played through Phantom Hourglass twice. I also hope that the dungeons are more challenging. I just played through the ame again and got stuck 1 time for about 20 minutes.


Last but not least I hope that it takes your drawings and stuff better. Sometimes you can draw something tat looks nothing like what you are suppose to (some of the drawings on the slate) and others have to draw it excactly perfect or it doesn't count it (Triforce on red door)

Am I the only person that hopes there'll be a graphical improvement?  I though they were blocky and overall pretty bad in the first game.

I might beable to play this game very early..... like November 5th early.

There's a Nintendo House event going around the UK this Winter and there is one at Southampton on the 5th-> 8th November. It's one of the earlier events because the latest event happens in London, Westfield: 16th-24th December ... which by then the games will already be out.

I'm not sure if it is going to be the near final build or it will use the ones from E3, PAX, etc.

It will also be the same day when I'll be playing New Super Mario Bros Wii for the first time too.
*raise fist* GREAT.

There's Wii Fit Plus too but I'm sure that game will be out in the UK before November.

Also some more info on the game

Takes place a century after PH (so I assume this is New Hyrule) and you can lay your own track later in the game for more exploration.

Hmm, no Wi-Fi logo on this boxart then. From Official Nintendo Magazine the Train can be upgradable throughout the quest (hopefully more depth than Phantom Hourglass in terms of powerups).  It will be hard to believe that this Link is different from the Wind Waker - Phantom Hourglass saga, he looks exactly the same  :o.

This also means that Zelda isn't Tetra in disguise unless she survived for over 100 years.

I don't see the Phantom so maybe he won't be the "main" character in the game like I previously thought.

Yep a double post because I'm a cool.

Anyway today you can see some small new footage of Zelda Spirit Tracks

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=1KRBGUPF

It was shown today on Channel 4 at 6pm, so I went to Channel 4+1 to record it.


Check out tomorrow for more updates as I am going to try out the game at Southampton.

It's Channel 4 but 1 hour later.
So lets say you missed The Simpsons on Channel 4 at 6pm, you can get a 2nd chance by watching it on Channel 4+1 at 7pm.

Unfortunately Spirit Tracks wasn't at the Nintendo House tour today, but I did get to play New Super Mario Bros Wii.

I also got to see some DS games actually connected to a seperate screen, it had a thick cable and by the end it had 2 seperate cables, 1 red and 1 white. They were connected by the middle of the DSi unit (near by the DS card Slot).

Edit:

Official Nintendo Magazine UK is going to answer some questions by posting comments to the blog update.

http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/article.php?id=13029

My questions were:

Does Link get dizzy at all for performing too many spin attacks or rolling?

Is there an temple you have to return to once in a while like The Temple of the Ocean King on Phantom Hourglass.

Does the game contains any Guays (Raven birds)?

Interesting. where did this black cable come from on the DS? also, was this a DS lite or a DSi?

Maybe someday we could construct one :D

It was on some kind of kiosk thingy. The seperate screen is probably one of these "pointless to steal tvs" as I doubt it would beable to connect to a DVD recorder etc. So I didn't really get to see the cables on the back of the seperate screen.

It was connected to a DSi but the setup looks so minimal it can be done on any DS model.

Even more interesting...

The only reason I asked about the DS model was because of the DSi's new security features...

Wether or not this is possible on a in-home basis is yet to come, as I've only (now) heard of/seen 3 types of DS recording styles (other than camera + DS)
