Spirit Pipes Used to Restore Spirit Tracks in Latest Zelda on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Zelda games and instruments usually come hand in hand, and Spirit Tracks is no exception with the Spirit Pipes.

In order to alter the world of Hyrule, solve puzzles and enhance abilities, Link will be able to play his nifty new instrument by using the DS microphone. Use the stylus and touch screen to set the correct note and blow away! The pipes are also used to restore the spirit tracks and help save the land from an impending creature lurking beneath the shadows, only held back by the dissapearing tracks themselves.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks spreads across Europe from December 11th 2009.

Nice, finally an original instrument idea that isn\'t the horrible awful howling from Twilight Princess!

This is, what, the first time since Wind Waker with a dedicated instrument? And before that Oracle of Ages (one of the best Zeldas EVAR btw :3)

This game is sounding better and better!!

I agree. Before the latest trailer and this news, it was one of my least hyped games of the year, now it is my most hyped game of the year.

Really love the idea of being able to play the instrument using the DS microphone, as well.

Seems like a good concept for the system.

I'm not overly keen on having instruments though in general. It worked wonders in Ocarina, but Its starting to get overused.

Before that even.
Technically a conducting rod isn't really an instrument.

I don't like blowing in the microphone, it sucked in Mario Kart DS as well.

But I do like farting, so if that works...colour me intrigued! (And my DS brown)

There's blowing into the mic in Mario Kart DS? When and how?? I never knew. Smilie

I remember having to blow into the DS to inflate the balloons in battle mode.

Someone will probably say there was another way and then I will look like an idiot.

You can also hold down Select if I recall correctly, though the process is slower that way. Smilie

There is a select button on the DS?!

Nice! It keeps getting better and better!

I don't know why, but the cartoon Link just makes me so... happy. I don't know, I just like the art style a lot.

Aww fuck not another instrument, hope you don't have to stop every 10 minutes just turn the other direction.
