The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass marks the classic series’ debut on the portable Nintendo DS. It follows the visual style of the hit The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and takes Nintendo DS to new heights, both in terms of the graphical abilities and game-play mechanics. It’s a classic Zelda experience that can be controlled entirely using the stylus on the DS touch screen. Two players can even compete wirelessly, either across the room or across great distances using Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo’s wireless gaming service.
