Tingle, the bizarre Legend of Zelda character that some love to hate, was the star of Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland, a bizarre RPG that only released in Europe and Japan previously. Its success lead for him to star in another game, which is a pretty different title from Rosy Rupeeland. It’s called Ripened Tingle’s Balloon Trip of Love, and you’re forgiven for never hearing of it. It didn’t get an English release either when it made its way to Nintendo DS.
That’s all changed now, with the English fan translation of the game that took four years to complete. You can play it in English now and follow Tingle all throughout his adventure as he journeys along with a lion, tin man, and young lady throughout a very familiar fictional land. He can potentially date one of the five women in-game, with dating sims and dungeons sprinkled throughout.
