The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is the 14th entry into the Legend of Zelda series. Released onto the Nintendo DS in Japan on June 23, 2007 and October 1, 2007, the game is a direct sequel to The Wind Waker. Phantom Hourglass, like The Wind Waker, also features cell-shaded graphics.
The Phantom Hourglass returns to a 2D overhead view and brought several new gameplay features to the series. Being the first Zelda game to be released onto the DS, it brought touch screen gaming to the series as well as the ability to use a microphone. Phantom Hourglass was also the first Zelda game to include an online competitive multiplayer mode.
The Phantom Hourglass would get a sequel released called Spirit Tracks.
