Believe it or not, Spirit Tracks came out in North America first. This is completely unlike Nintendo, who usually opt to put Zelda games out in Japan first. But, unfortunately for Japan, they do not get the game until the 23rd, so they are just now getting their commercials. Personally, I like them a bit more then America’s commercials; they’re quirky and they show gameplay (and especially the whip) a lot more. Also, if you’re the spoiler type, there’s something that people might consider a spoiler at the very end. Obviously Nintendo didn’t think so, but it’s there.
