The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (ゼルダの伝説 夢幻の砂時計, Zeruda no Densetsu Mugen no Sunadokei) is the fourteenth game in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series, and it was released after The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii and before The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks for the Nintendo DS. An action-adventure game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS, Phantom Hourglass was released in Japan in June 2007, and in North America, Australia, and Europe in October 2007. The game features 3D cel-shaded graphics with an overhead camera perspective, uses Nintendo DS features for game controls including the touchscreen and microphone, and takes advantage of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for online play.

The game's story follows that of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and focuses on Link as he journeys to save his friend Tetra from the story's antagonist, Bellum. With the help of Captain Linebeck and his ship, the S. S. Linebeck, Link sets out to find the Phantom Hourglass, and uses it to find the Spirits of Courage, Wisdom, and Power. After learning that the only way to defeat Bellum is with the Phantom Sword, Link travels across islands to find three pure metals, and forges them into the sword used to finally defeat Bellum and save Tetra.

Critics were generally positive towards Phantom Hourglass. Its control scheme was praised, while criticism focused on its online features, which were considered too simple. The game received several video game industry awards, including the Nintendo DS Game of the Year award from IGN, GameSpy and GameSpot. Phantom Hourglass was the best-selling game in its first month of June 2007 in Japan, with 302,887 copies. In the United States, the game was the fifth best-selling game when it debuted in October 2007, with 262,800 copies. Over four million copies of Phantom Hourglass were sold worldwide by March 2008.
