As the new day dawns, a young apprentice named Link makes his way to his train engineer certification ceremony at Hyrule Castle.

During the ceremony, the lovely Princess Zelda takes him aside and passes him a secret note with directions to her private quarters. Link slips past the guards to her room where Zelda tells him the terrible news that the spirit tracks are disappearing! The princess asks Link to help her evade the castle guards and take her to the Tower of Spirits to meet the wise woman Anjean.

The plucky pair make it to Link's train, but are apprehended en route by some rogue characters who attack Zelda and carry away her body! Luckily, her spirit manages to escape and she accompanies Link to the Tower where Anjean reveals the terrible truth that the Demon King is breaking free of his prison and may soon plague the land again.

Can Link find and restore the spirit tracks in time to stop this happening? Can he reconnect Zelda with her earthly body? Only time and true courage will tell?

Game Prologue

Below is the Prologue as it appears within the game. [1]

This is a tale from long ago. It's the tale of the first settlers of this land.

In the beginning, the people followed the spirits of good, and all was peaceful. But that era of peace soon came to an end.

The evil Demon King rose to power, destroying everything in his path. The spirits of good had no choice but to face him in battle.

The war that ensued seemed to last an eternity, and much blood was shed.

Finally, the spirits subdued the Demon King, though they could no destroy him. Their powers were greatly depleted.

With their remaining power, they buried the Demon King's spirit in the ground. They built shackles to imprison him, and a tower that acted as a lock. These shackles cover the land to this day.

With their power drained, the spirits of good returned to the heavens. Suddenly bereft of both demons and spirits, this land was entrusted to us.
