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.

Poor Epona.

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.
