Warning: This post contains a potentially lethal dose of cute. Proceed with caution

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks has been out for a few weeks now, but that hasn't stopped Nintendo from stoking the marketing fires. This latest push, a collaboration with Wallace and Gromit's Aardman Studios, is probably the most adorable thing we've seen in a while. Using the free DSi application Flipnote Studios, Aardman has created a series of short animations featuring Link, Princess Zelda and a teeny roster of supporting players. We've got the exclusive look at the latest clip, which shows that Link is nothing if not resourceful. Maybe all that dungeon exploration has paid off. If you've missed the other videos, we've got 'em here, too. Enjoy!

Fire and monsters are nothing to our hero.

You think you're sneaky? Bah. Watch this.

Link is not good at wearing hats.
