The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

It's a well trodden discussion at this point that Nintendo's Virtual Console service has some room for improvement. While it's quite nice that it allows the opportunity for gamers both young and old to experience games from generations gone by, there are some issues with pricing and gaps in the library. Of course, there's also the issue of games being released on the VC in one region, and either are delayed or never released in another. While we'll likely never know what goes on behind the development of VC games, at least North America will finally be able to partake in a classic Zelda game soon.

It's just come to light that The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass will be landing tomorrow on the Wii U on the 12th for the weekly update. The first of two DS zelda games, Phantom Hourglass is a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and continues to follow the adventures of Link on the high seas. Whether or not The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks will be soon following remains a mystery, but it's nice to see Nintendo of America working to fill gaps in its VC library.
