Some new screens for Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks showing off Link playing his Spirit Pipes popped up on CVG today.
To play the new instrument, you have to blow into the DS microphone while moving the stylus left to right, to work the pipes.
Speaking of blowing into things, you also have to use your hot air with Link’s new whirlwind weapon. It creates a mini typhoon and blows enemies away.
You can also use a whip to beat your enemies into submission or reach new areas – kind of like the grappling hook from previous games.
Head on over through the link for the shots and a video.
It’s out in the UK December 11.

There’s a new movie of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks after the break, showing the Phantom from Phantom Hourglass possessing baddies in the name of progression.
The game’s Zelda kidnap scene’s also shown, so look away if you want to stay pure.
It looks absolutely beautiful, to be honest. It’s out in December.

NOA’s Kit Ellis has told G4 that its latest Link adventure, Spirit Tracks, takes place a century after Phantom Hourglass.
So while it’s an all new Link, the setting will still be familiar because it’s the same world.
As far as Link’s mode of transportation is concerned, the train is not only upgradable, but eventually you will be able to lay your own tracks in order to explore the land a bit more.
Neato. Video is after the break, thanks to GoNintendo.
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks will hit shops December 11 in Europe and December 7 in the US.

Update: Nintendo’s confirmed to CVG that the collectors edition will be coming to the UK as a pre-order exclusive at GAME. While stocks last, it will be available to pre-order from October 26.
Original Story: Console Planet has an image of what appears to be a collectors edition of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.
In it, it shows a tin collectors box, two figureines of Link and the Phantom and the game itself.
Game’s out on December 11 for the DS. We’ll email Nintendo and see if it’s coming to the UK.

Nintendo has sent over a mailer featuring its holiday line-up, and on the list, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks was put down for a December 7 release.
Good to know, there. Should make a nice Christmas present for some folks.
Since the list is rather extensive and too big to take a screenshot of, we found the press release for you online so you can get the whole caboodle.

Amazon UK has a preorder page up for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.
Not only is the online retailer listing the game for £24.96 which is 38 percent of the suggested retail price of £39.99 – but it has it down for a December 4 release.
Granted, we need to wait for word to come down from Nintendo, but still if that’s the case we don’t have much longer to wait.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks looks good and sounds as good as any other handheld title in the lauded franchise, but everyone has been wondering about the train bit.
However, all trepidations aside, D’toid got its hands on the game at E3 and to say the site sounds enthusiastic about the game is an understatement.
Here are some highlights:
How does The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks play? It is absolutely incredible!
It looks just like Phantom Hourglass, but does it play equally as great? YES!
And is seeing Link conducting a train weird? If by “weird” you mean awesome!
I know it seems obvious now, but I loved my time with The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. If you loved Phantom Hourglass you will absolutely adore this direct sequel. The controls are perfect, the graphics are gorgeous, and the tried and true Zelda gameplay feels fresh as ever due to some very welcome additions.
Read the rest and check out some screens through the link.

Nintendo has released the video for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks that was shown at E3 today.
Yes, Zelda games are cute. Some are brilliant. Also, each one has a special place in someone’s heart.
This one will be no different. Now, where’s the new one for Wii?
Watch it after the break.

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.

NoA’s Reggie Fils-Aime has told GameTrailers TV that Nintendo will do better at E3 this year.
“We haven’t announced a launch date [for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks], maybe we’ll do that at E3. You know, everyone wants to know what we’re going to announce at E3 and my answer is, come to E3 and you’ll see… From Nintendo’s perspective, we always go into E3 with a very high bar wanting to satisfy not only the core fans but also ourselves. We’re hoping to do a much better job this year. You’ll have to see for yourself.”
Last year’s E3 performance from Nintendo was panned by most attendees.

Nintendo just released the first proper details of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, following this morning’s showing of the DSi game in GDC’s Iwata keynote.
Via press release:
The new The Legend of Zelda™: Spirit Tracks game that Iwata announced will utilise the intuitive touch control of Phantom Hourglass in an all new adventure that will please longtime Zelda™ fans while keeping the game accessible to all DS owners. The concept behind this Zelda game includes utilising a steam locomotive to travel around the world, switching Phantom and Link to explore the dungeons, and solving puzzles using new items.
It’s out this year. There’s pics on Joystiq, if you’re interested.
