Everyone really LOVES Tingle from newer The Legend of Zelda games, that’s why Nintendo gave him his own game on the DS! First Tingle-riffic screenshots here. Coming out in Japan in 2006, the game’s title is “Mogitate Tingle no Barairo Rupee Land”, which translates as “Freshly-picked Tingleâ€™s Pink-coloured Rupee Land“.
Introducing an RPG starring the popular (?) character from the Legend of Zelda series, Tingle! As this game begins, Tingle is still living the life of a normal middle-aged guy called Tinkle. Just as it begins to seem that his days will forever pass without meaning, he hears his calling: “Come to the spring.”
When he goes to the spring, a man by the name of Rupeeji appears! He tells Tingle that if he collects Rupees (money) and throws them into the sprint, he will be able to go to the paradise of dreams, a place called Rupee Land. He agrees with this plan, and is thus reincarnated as the magical “Tingle.” He even has his own girl fairy, named Pingle. If he runs out of rupees, his life runs out too.
While the new DS game travels Tingle’s story from boy to fairy, in the GameCube’s Wind Waker his transformation into the bizarre fairy was also described as:
The Legend of the Fairy.
It is said that long ago, a boy garbed in green known as the Hero of Time saved this land. However, on a certain island, there is also the story of the fairy who saved that hero…
It is said that the Hero of Time met the fairy in the midst of his travels. The fairy appeared before the Hero, who had found himself lost in darkness. With a mystic power, it would float in midair, dancing above his head like a burst balloon.
After the fairy handed the lost Hero a map, it flew off as quickly as it had appeared. Better able to foresee places of danger than the Hero, the fairy marked them on a map. The Legend goes on to say the quest of the Hero of Time was saved by this plump figure…
Fairies live for thousands of years… but this odd fairy was a bit different. This mystical fairy was born near a lake, and when he met the Hero, he was but 35. Beyond that, there is little known about that fairy…
The little-known Legend of the Fairy’s 35th Birthday.
On one island they celebrate one’s 35th birthday with a green coat and red pants. They do this in the hopes of becoming like the legendary fairy, Tingle.
