Ok, we heard it was coming, but had it been dated? Sept. 14th. Get your boners ready.

http://www.nintendo-europe.com/NOE/en/GB/news/article.do?elementId=9QS2B9aXy0L8FhSqWeQd0UJrlhXGmzAz
Tingle, known from his appearances in The Legend of Zelda series, gets his own game with Freshly Picked - Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland. This is a whacky and fun RPG where you must guide Tingle through the quest’s many surprises whilst collecting as much cash, known as Rupees, as you can.

Fucking sweet. The best part of 3D Zelda, in his own game, in English. If NA doesn't announce this shit by Sept. I am importing on impact.

    On the same day as EU Super Paper Mario no less.

    Whose release will be eclipsed by a canapoy of green stretchpant enshrouded boners, and giant pointy titties.

    The sun will not be seen in Europe for months.

    That, and the surprising intelligence behind it. Tingle is a 35-year-old cosplayer who is obsessed with Link, and his father is embarrassed of him. He's an otaku stereotype. Nintendo is making fun of its own rabid fanbase.

    He is not obsessed with Link. He want's to be a fairy and think Link is a fairy. So I guess he want's to be like Link. Sooo, I guess you're actually right.

    Tingle does love those whores...

    I can still hardly believe it's true, until the game is in my hands It will still all seem like some beautiful fevered dream that they would even consider localising this slice of awesome pie.

    This is the best news I've heard all year. This is geniunely my most anticipated game of the year now!

    Ahead of Galaxy, ahead of Metroid, hell maybe even ahead of Phantom Hourglass - but then I'm not that certain it will make it to Euro this year so I don't have to worry about that...

    I love Tingle, he's a character designed to piss "fans" off.
    It's so post modern that you could put it in the tate modern and piss of the daily mail.
    I love it.

    Well there goes my "Wii drought" - If I manage to finish Excite Truck, Metal Slug, Sonic, Zelda and Red Steel (which is actually pretty good) before then...

    I've had it from launch too. I don't get how people have so much time to get to a drought. Lucky fuckers...

    I'd count him as being in Twilight Princess. Purlo (or whatever his name is) has the right outfit, obsession with money, mole placement, clock placement, etc.

    It's like they were too afraid of angering Western audiences (who were probably the reason the game doesn't use a more WW-esque art style) to call him Tingle, but they still put had to put him in.

    In short: "What's in a name? That which we call a Tingle by any other name would be as bizarre."

    Also, he was in SSBM, so if you count the Oracles as one long game, he's been in every one of Link's appearances since his creation in MM (excepting only Soul Calibur II, if you want to be technical).

    Why are you asking him. He stole Tingle's words. It's obvious he didn't listen.

    I would like someone more knowledgeable of the japanese version of Majora's Mask and the WW to confirm this, because from what I understand in MM he didn't believe himself to be fairy but a fairy boy, meaning a kokiri, and how he was waiting for a fairy of his own a la navi/tatl but she never came, so my guess is that Tingle calling link "mr. fairy" and saying he is the reincarnation of a fairy in tWW is an innacurate (maybe even made on purpose) translation.

    Who cares? If you can get past a language selection screen, a couple of superfluous 'u's and the phrase "touch wood", you should be just fine importing the Euro version.

    It doesn't predate anything. We speak English because a lot of us came from England. The language branched, both branches having the same lineage, so neither is older or more correct.

    It's off-topic, but..... Noah Webster unilaterally introduced "spelling reforms", removing the "u" from many words. He did this because he personally thought it was better that way.

    So, it's not that the languages naturally branched. It's just that one guy decided to change the spelling of quite a few words while writing his dictionary. That dictionary then became standard in the US.

    Thus my joke about the superfluous 'u's, especially on the word, superfluous, which Webster seemed to miss. It's just a peeve of mine when people pull out the "we've been speaking English longer so we're right", because that argument doesn't really make any sense.
