Well, possibly to become one of the greatest handheld games to come in a long, long time, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass has launched in Japan! Now, isn't that just great, but WHAT ABOUT US? Well, this morning Nintendo officially announced on its press site (alongside their "Wiikly VC Updates") that the game would be released in North America on the 1st of October, 2007.
Wanna know what's better? Our own Steve Caskey got his hands on a copy of the Japanese version of the game! The bad news? Steve can't read Japanese, and trivia questions are required to pass a certain point in the game. Don't worry, though. I'll make sure he makes a preview of it during E3! Speaking of E3, I'm sure we're almost guaranteed to hear more about this game, at E3. I mean, it's probably the highlight of the Nintendo DS this year (if Pokemon isn't).
