Nintendo US dates Zelda: Spirit Tracks

Christmas schedule does the talking.

Nintendo of America has announced a 7th December release date for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.

The timing comes from a long seasonal schedule for Wii and DS issued overnight by the platform holder. Nintendo has told Eurogamer that a European equivalent will be issued in "the coming weeks".

DS game Zelda: Spirit Tracks follows the excellent strides made by Phantom Hourglass on the system last year. You can catch up with our thoughts on both Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass elsewhere on the site.

The schedule also points out that New Super Mario Bros. Wii - our game of E3 2009 - still lingers in "Holiday 2009" without a specific date. Time is running out, although Nintendo may have a glitzy announcement at the ready.
