Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

If there is a game that has a really great plot, that would be the Legend of Zelda. The Legend of Zelda is a gaming franchise that has spawned many titles. Each of its iterations is highly acclaimed by both fans and critics alike.

In this article, we are going to talk about the Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks game for the Nintendo DS.

The story revolves around Link and Princess Zelda. Link is to become a train engineer and he attends the ceremony to be stated as one. The ceremony is to be held at the Hyrule castle, where Princess Zelda would honor Link’s promotion as a train engineer.

Chancellor Cole, however, does not want Link to be promoted because it would be pointless since the Spirit Tracks (or magical train tracks) are slowly disappearing anyway. Still, Princess Zelda went on with the celebration, but before promoting Link, she slid a note when Link and Zelda were shaking hands.

Stated in that note, Princess Zelda wants to get out of the castle because she believes Chancellor Cole is not someone you can trust. With the help of Link, both he and Princess Zelda were able to get past the castle.

Along with Link’s mentor and former soldier of the Hyrule Castle, Alfonzo, the three of them journeyed to the Town of Spirits to know more about Chancellor Cole. Unfortunately, when they were in the middle of the route, Chancellor Cole along with his sidekick, Byrne, stopped them by removing the Spirit Tracks. The train tripped over, but before it did, Chancellor Cole was able to get Princess Zelda’s body to be used as a vessel and her spirit is left roaming around without her body.

After regrouping back to the Hyrule Castle, the three of them went back to the Tower of spirits to know what is really going on. Upon their arrival, they were greeted by a Lokomo named Anjean. A Lokomo is a servant of Goodness, and Anjean tells Link’s team that in order to rescue Princess Zelda, they must defeat the evil Malladus.

Malladus was currently in spirit form, that is why Chancellor Cole needed Princess Zelda’s body to revive him completely. Unfortunately for them, Link was able to defeat Chancellor Malladus and in the end, was able to rescue Princess Zelda’s body.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks game for the Nintendo DS is a wonderful game. It not only has a great storyline but it also has compelling gameplay. The players will have to make use of the Nintendo DS’ stylus in order to navigate the map as well as make use of Link’s weapons, items, etc.

This Nintendo DS game utilizes both of the console’s screen with having the bottom screen as the main view of the game and the top screen as the map.
