Do you love Spirit Tracks as much as we do? Then you will be very interested in reading this Nintendo Power interview with director Daiki Iwamoto, where he answers questions such as:

  • First a boat, and now a train-why do the Zelda games for Nintendo DS feature vehicles in such a prominent way?
  • Chancellor Cole and Byrne [Staven in Europe] are two interesting characters that seem somewhat unique in the Zelda series. Would you say that their personalities and story arcs tie into any overall theme for the game?
  • The ending seems to be somewhat ambiguous with regard to Link and Zelda’s future paths. Do you have a sense of how their lives and relationship continue?

Some of the things in this interview we’ve heard before, but a  great deal is new. It’s a nice look behind the scenes that most fans will certainly enjoy reading.
