In a stunning turn of events yesterday, Nintendo achieved perhaps a world first by releasing a game title that is several times more informative than its actual official trailer.

The title for Tingle 2 has been confirmed – Color Changing Tingle’s Love Balloon Trip. Nobody has a clue as to why Tingle is planning to change colors, but according to Nintendo the theme of the game is “woman”, so I think we can all guess why he will be taking a trip on his love balloon.

A downloadable Tingle-themed app for the DSi has also been announced, and is going to be called the “Too Much Tingle Pack.” It will be a collection of little Tingle-related tools, including a clock, a calculator and a coin toss.

In other words, it looks to be a Tingle-themed version of what those who play the Pokémon games would refer to as a Pokétch.

    That would be an interesting idea. Having a humorous character in your handheld every time you open your system, it's an interesting concept to add to the DSiWare.

    • Except that it's 500 Nintendo points. ($5+tax.) Which is a rip-off if you ask me.

    Just because it's called "Color Changing" Tingle's Love Balloon Trip doesn't mean he's going to change colors. His other game was "Freshly Picked" Tingle's Rosy Red Rupeeland. The "Freshly Picked" had practically nothing to do with him.

    Oh great, "Too Much Tingle". This will be interesting.

      It was a joke ;p

        Heh heh, I knew that, duh. *runs away*

    What the hell is Nintendo doing?

    • 1. For the last time Vanpool makes these games.

      2. Japan likes Tingle.

      3. It's selfish bastards like you that won't let the rest of us play these games without importing or emulation.

      • swizzles

        Yeah, I bet they're not actually that bad to play. A lot of people who have played Rupeeland say that it's pretty fun.

        Oh Schnap!

        Thank you, I agree. I imported the first Tingle Game and it was great, much better than Phantom Hour Glass.

      • Rupees

        For some people (like me) they don't have to import, actually, because they may move around a lot or just not live in America, even though they are American.

        But I still hate the foreign games because of a very stupid reason actually (the cases aren't in english, usually)

      Tingle is AWSOME! He just as AWSOME as Link! His AWSOMENESS is so AWSOME that no one has any chance of taking his AWSOMENESS away!

  • lockx

    Sigh… Navi 17 I suggest you go look at the walkthroughs that are available All over the Internet… Or click on OOT on the upper bar and scroll down to help and get the walkthrough There! Or click here… Which is the gamefaqs Epona FAQ… seeing as I couldn't find the walkthrough on a quick glance through the site today. Had no time.

    As for tingle… Awesome. Trailer is ~.~ but I love the concept of tingle games. And the title… well definitely going in a New direction!

  • You know that teaser site from a few weeks ago? they're still updating it but now it's about Colour Changing Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love, and not about Too Much Tingle Pack
