• Link has a valuable new companion. While navigating dungeons, he’s accompanied by a Phantom, a hulking

suit of armor that responds to his commands. Players can tap the Phantom to take command of him, then

draw a line on the touch screen to direct him where to go. The stout Phantom can walk through fire or lava, be

used as a platform to carry Link above dangers, or even run interference to block Link from harm.

• When Link conducts the train, players enjoy a satisfying combination of action and real-time puzzle solving as

they determine which track to take and how to best manipulate their speed. When on the train, Link must plot

the best route to the end of the line around ever-moving obstacles. While en route, Link might need to fire an

onboard cannon at enemies who attack the train or sound the whistle to scare animals off the tracks.

• Link uses a variety of new items and weapons, including the Whirlwind, which players activate by blowing into

the microphone of the Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi

™ system.

• As with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, players can draw notes on the in-game maps using the

stylus on the touch screen.
