Spirit Tracks

Spirit Tracks is the second title to hit the Nintendo DS. The game takes place one hundred years after the close of Phantom Hourglass and contains all new mythology and folklore. Like its predecessors, Spirit Tracks makes use of a long distance traveling method. This time around, the method of transporation is the oft-forgotten vehicle, the train. That's right - Link's riding around in style in a hot new wooden locomotive. Fully customizable with train parts, much like Phantom Hourglass, Link's train is yours to mix and match as you please.

Most remarkable about Spirit Tracks is the gameplay. As is expected, the game is entirely controlled by the touch screen. This control method allows for unique mechanics and seamless item usage, especially with the likes of the boomerang. Also used widely is the DS microphone, for both the Whirlwind, the Spirit Flute, and other gameplay mechanics. But what is truly unique about Spirit Tracks is Zelda's role - our princess plays right alongside Link as a companion and a fellow hero. You are able to control Zelda and other characters via the stylus in certain areas of the game, particularly the sacred Tower of Spirits.
