Morning, ZeldaInformers. I’ve got some great news this morning for all of our European fans. A few weeks back, we finally got a North American release date for Spirit Tracks, and, now, we’ve finally received the date for Europe, as well. December 11th, kiddies. 4 days after the folks in North America. No word yet on a Australian date yet, but they’re usually the same as Europe—we’ll keep you posted if not.
Words from Nintendo of Europe:
There is something to please everyone on Nintendo DS this autumn and winter, from high fashion to the return of Link in the brand new The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is the hotly-anticipated new title coming to Nintendo DS in time for Christmas. The new game features a new mode of transport as you must control a train to navigate Link’s world, charting a course to the end of the line past all manner of obstacles and enemies that will try to thwart your plans.
What’s more, Link has a new companion in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks: the Phantom. This giant suit of armour now responds to commands, helping Link by battling enemies and walking through fire and lava. Whether working the tracks on the train or battling through the dungeons, the new Zelda adventure will keep your stylus tapping this winter as you crack its fiendish new storyline. Make tracks for the latest instalment of Link’s adventures on 11 December 2009.
Other announced titles include Wii Fit Plus on October 30th, New Super Mario Bros. Wii on November 20th, and Nintendo Presents: Style Boutique on October 23rd. Check a .pdf of Europe’s entire Q4 release schedule here.
