Zelda DS gets US date

As Metroid Wii slips a week.

Nintendo of America has said that The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass will be released exclusively for Nintendo DS on 1st October.

With no word on a European release, a pretty favourable exchange rate and a region-free console, we expect some of you will act on that.

Phantom Hourglass adopts a similar graphical style to GameCube title The Wind Waker, and indeed follows on from it, with stylus-driven controls.

You can see more of how it works in the videos we've got on our Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass gamepage.

Also announced was the news that Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, previously down for US Wii release on 20th August, has slipped a week to the 27th.

There's still no word on when we'll get that, either, although it isn't in Nintendo's plans for Q3, so "Christmas" seems like the best bet.
