I really loved the old weapons from Phantom Hourglass and all, But the game needed more unique items since it was the less game out of the Zelda series, the Boomerang, Bow and Arrows, Hookshot and all the standard stuff from every Zelda game was back then. I would be great it they put those items back in the Spirit Tracks, but i think it will actually do so, what is a Zelda game without those great basic items? Other side i would really like to see some more interesting weapons like we've seen in Twilight Princess. Some new ad's are also nice, i mean some new ''effect'' like we see on the pic from Silver.
I have to say some improvements aren't enough, i go for half half. Keep the old standard weapons and add more interesting new weapons, it really needs it since i'm not so excited about this game after Phantom Hourglass, i just think it will be the same disappointment, but who nows there are plenty better things to do then in Phantom Hourglass.
But i really like to see some new weapons, ways more interesting as the weapons from Twilight Princess. So no upgraded old items, just a whole new set of items. Some items from A Link To The Past return would be great, like the Fire and Ice rod, but they can also merge this with the Bow and Arrows, would be pretty awesome if they put the Fire, Ice and Light arrows back. A improved Hookshot, Bow and Arrow and Boomerang plus a whole new set appart from the items out of other Zelda games.
How can i forgot about the Bombs, i really want to see the bomb back, also with a new add or other kind of bombs added. But the bombs are needed in any Zelda games, so nobody can say the Bombs are outstanding.
Anyway, i don't want to know which items are new or not, i want to see it myself, suprise me. I can only hope for a new set of item/weapons, however... i will not be disappointed if there are no new items, i just hope the whole game will be better then PH in general.
