Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is for a “wider age group of people”

Nintendo said in its full-year financials today that the next Zelda game’s looking to broaden the franchises reach.

“The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks… will appeal to a wider age group of people, and will launch in the later half of the year,” said the firm.

This was pretty much the only game-related info in the release, and is unlikely to thrill fans of the series.

Get all the rest of the news from the statement here. Thanks, Kotaku.

    Perhaps more for the even younger kids? :). Zelda in gameplay terms is very age friendly, but in style and presentation not so much.

    With the New “CHOO CHOO” Train maybe they are hoping for 4-5 year olds??? Sweet Milky Way Galaxy, What I wouldn’t give for a more Hard Edge Zelda Game geared more towards the 18- and up crowd..Sigh..It shall never happen!
