Japan exclusive Tingle game gets a fan translation


Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland was a 2006 Nintendo DS title that gave us an all-too-terrifying look into the solo adventures of the world’s most horrifying map-maker, Tingle.

Tingle’s brilliance proved too great for audiences outside of Japan and so the sequel, Ripened Tingle’s Balloon Trip of Love would never see release beyond its home country. That is, until now. That’s right, Tingle’s Balloon Trip of Love is now playable in English all thanks to a new fan-translation.

Ripened Tingle’s Balloon Trip of Love puts players in the role of the Zelda series’ map-maker as he explores a romantic picture book along with three companions. You can download the translation patch for your (legally-obtained) ROM from the project’s official site. But, if you would rather not see what Tingle has been up to, I can’t say I blame you.

You can get a look at the English translation here, thanks to Lutheage on YouTube.
