Though hard details are still sparse, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks was confirmed by Nintendo at their GDC keynote for a 2009 DS release.
From screens proferred at the address, this newest adventure will feature the now standard cel-shaded look. Also, it appears the talking boat from The Wind Waker has been spurned for a locomotive -- hence the tentative name, Spirit Tracks.
We can't say this was surprising, but it certainly is welcome. Hopefully, we will get an announcement at E3 concerning a Zelda title for Wii in 2010.
