By Jorge Ba-oh 08.03.2007 9

Yet more GDC media updates with a selection of fresh shots from Link's upcoming portable adventure, Phantom Hourglass for DS, bringing touch screen control to an age-old sword wielding story.

Nintendo have also revealed some interesting multiplayer mechanics for those wanting a bit more than solo action..

  • Two players battle one another in a race to see who can collect the most Force Gems within a limited amount of time.
  • Players alternate between controlling Link and controlling three phantom guards.
  • When a player controls Link, he can race to key locations to grab Force Gems. When a player controls thethree phantom guards, the mission is to keep Link from the Force Gems at all costs.

    Be sure to check out the screens album below for further shots..

    I still dunno about that new perspective they're using makes the game look like a bomberman game or something cheap, I'm sure they'll make it work though, its nintendo they always do.

    another awsome game from Nintendo Smilie this looks awsome!! Smilie

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

    My god the graphics are fucking awesome. Can't wait for it, the game my DS was bought for.

    Reminds me of the classic and it was a classic LOZ Wind Waker.

    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich�. They were the statement and the definition."

    This game should have been out about 2000 years ago now. I am sick of waiting for it.


    The multiplayer is a tad unoriginal. Nintendo could do so much better - for example, an online deathmatch mode.

    Screwing the rules since 1989.

    for example, an online deathmatch mode.

    Oh yes because thats super original :/...
    They need to make an online 4 swords.
