Good news for “Kooloo Limpha!” Tingle fans. According to Cubed3 the zany Legend of Zelda character is getting his own RPG spinoff Nintendo DS game translated into English for a European release date in 2007. Released on September 2nd, 2006, in Japan it has already sold over 200,000 units.
This, after famous critics’ magazine Famitsu rated “Tingleâ€™s Freshly-Picked Rose-Colored Rupee Land” 33/40 meaning the four reviews averaged 82.5% out of 100%.

Update: Nintendo has confirmed the game is renamed “Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland”.
PS: Europe today received Super Mario Bros. (NES, 500 Wii Points, 1-2 players) and Motoroader (TurboGrafx, 600 Wii Points, 1-5 players) on the Virtual Console download service. Sometimes I wish Nintendo and other game developers would use this Shop Channel to easily make available some of their more wacky titles, without all the production costs a very Japanese game could prove to be a hit worldwide.
