    Buried in the midst of Nintendo's 2009 fiscal year results is a small note about the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. It's interesting to see how the game's described to investors, rather than fans.

    While the game is mentioned only in passing, the report hints at the game's direction, saying that "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".

    Hrm. Make of that what you will.

    *More news...... (for the grumblers)*

    Nintendo ended their GDC keynote announcing The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, but never set a release date. Their fiscal year 2010 financial outlook released tonight at least gives the game a timeline, forecasting the portable Zelda game will launch in the latter half of this calendar year.


    Seems like The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks will be Nintendo’s DS / DSi holiday game.

    So how exactly is wider age group? Wasn't Zelda already rated "E" ?

    Phantom Hourglass was too easy already..

    I hope they find a better difficulty balance this time, one that please both new and old Zelda players. Nintendo was able to do that very well with Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros.

    Maybe they could use that patent where players could skip parts if they wanted.

    Personally, I found NSMB WAY too easy.

    Anyway, I hope that Zelda:ST is not going to feel like an "expansion pack" for PH or something...

    Shit.
    Nintendo used to be the best. Then they saw the possibility of quick money in non-gamers. Now they can release shit products (Wii, DSi) and they and Ubisoft will spam them with shovelware to death. But now, not being satisfied with killing off their reputation, they are killing off their classics.
    First there was Mario...
    Now Link...
    Who next?

    Seriously, I used to be a Nintendo fanboy. Now they don't make decent products anymore.

    As far as I can see, phantom Hourglass was perfectly suitable for children. Unless they're referring to women or elderly people
