Back in March, Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for the DS. The touch-screen adventure would be a continuation of The Wind Waker's cutesy, animated style and ship in the fourth quarter of this year. Nintendo's own press site still claims this is the case.
However, searching for the game on pretty much any retailer's website shows a 2007 release is in the cards. EB Games claims March, Best Buy says January 31... no one knows. It makes sense, however, to not spit Hourglass out with Twilight Princess already vying for everyone's attention on Wii and GameCube.
We hope to have an official response from Nintendo soon.
