Boosty from Daily Joystick writes; "The Nintendo DS was one of the handhelds that I purchased on launch day and it's pretty much taken a back seat over the years due to my new found love with both the Xbox and Xbox 360. But, there's always a time where I need to travel for work or go on a holiday and I need some form of gaming to preoccupy my mind. That's when my DS gets its play time, and how fortunate I was this year to have the Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks on hand for my journey.
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks follows the time line of the other Zelda titles and is set over 100 years after the events of the Phantom Hourglass. In terms of similarities, the little pirate from the first game is now of course a very old man who lives in town with Link just outside Hyrule castle. There is also Linebacks descendants who looks, well identical to his grand father and is now running an antique store as opposed to a pirate ship. The game also shares the cell shaded graphic design that was introduced with the Wind Waker and carried over to the Phantom Hourglass."
