“Technology actually was not a major concern for us when we decided to use the train. In The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, the boat was the key mode of transportation. Now that Spirit Tracks takes place on land, we needed a new way for players to get around, and felt that the train offered the best sense of exploration and discovery. We don’t think it feels out of place in the game world. Trains are also a popular mode of transportation in Japan. My children and I still feel a great sense of adventure when we ride trains in Japan. Regarding use of other forms in technology in the future, as long it adds to the overall game experience and is something we feel the player would enjoy, we wouldn’t be afraid to implement it. As a matter of fact, we have used the Hook Shot in several previous games, which would be considered a very modern type of technology, even by today’s standards.” – Eiji Aonuma

When you think about all of the Zelda games, the technology used in the series has become more modernized as additional titles were released. To be honest, I was a little surprised when the first trailer of Spirit Tracks was released, which showcased the train. Is there any piece of technology in particular you guys would like to see in a Zelda game?

“It certainly would be interesting to do the game for Wii… We’re always looking to do something new something that hasn’t been done before. We’re going to continue on that path.” – Technical Director Marius Fahlbusch

I wonder if we will ever see a Wii version of Scribblenauts, whether it’s a port or an original game. At this point, the latter seems more likely. You may remember that a few weeks ago, a rumored Warner Bros. listing showed Scribblenauts 2 for the Wii and DS.

It’s been more than 20 years since the first Nintendo Power was published. And next month, the magazine will be reaching a milestone – It’s 250th issue. To celebrate,  it looks like Nintendo Power has “a surprise or two” in store. It’s unclear if there will be any actual game announcements, but the magazine has been pretty good with nabbing exclusives in the past. Here’s what the teaser from the latest Nintendo Power actually says:

“In just 30 short days we’ll mark our 250th issue with a celebration of all things Nintendo, plus big year-end reviews and even a surprise or two. It’s sure to be one for the history books, so don’t miss the party!”
