Good news for fans in North America! You can now purchase The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass on the Wii U eShop for only $9.99!
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is the story after the Wind Waker showing Link and Tetra navigating through the Great Sea after Ganon’s downfall. But their journey is not as smooth as they want it to be because Tetra disappears on a mystical Ghost Ship. In order to rescue her, Link teams up with a fairy named Ciela, and Linebeck, the unenthusiastic captain of the ship S.S. Linebeck.
According to Nintendo Inquirer, the gameplay of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass revolves around sailing to various islands and exploring them on foot, which is similar to Wind Waker. The stylus will be used to draw on the sea chart a course that will be automatically followed by S.S. Linebeck. The stylus can then be used to control Link’s movement and sword attacks while on foot. With Wii U, the classic The Legend of Zelda weapons will be manipulated using touch screen controls.
Meanwhile, as announced previously, Nintendo NX will not make an appearance in this year’s E3. Though many fans were disappointed with this news, they at least have a definite time on when to expect the new console – and that’s March 2017. Nintendo has released a statement, wrote Christian Daily which says:
"Nintendo previously announced that it would release more information about its next system, code-named NX, this year. As the first announcement of any NX information, Nintendo confirmed that NX is scheduled to launch in March 2017. NX will not make an appearance at the upcoming E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles in June and will be unveiled later this year."
Some reports said that Nintendo NX will appear at the Tokyo Games Show which will begin on September 15, 2016 and more details about the console will be shared in the event.
We will know for sure if there’s truth to these rumors when the Tokyo event happens, or Nintendo release new updates regarding Nintendo NX in the coming days.
