The mysterious Tingle game that Nintendo's been teasing was revealed last night -- when it was released. Dekisugi Tingle Pack is a DSiWare download that is actually not a game, but a set of little tools and apps, all starring Link's "pal." The included utilities are a fortune-telling program (hence ...

As promised, today brings new updates to Nintendo's Tingle website, though the updates are brief, inscrutable, and tell us absolutely nothing about whatever game this site is teasing. The TV on the left side of the Flash site now shows one of three brief, blurry videos before cutting out to static. ...

Hot on the heels of a new ad spotted in Famitsu, a new Tingle website has appeared at Nintendo Japan. The website actually features the fairy-obsessed man-in-green very little, but it still contains plenty of his ... eccentric charm. Our Japanese is rusty (nonexistent, really), but it looks like y...

We love that we live in a world where an almost universally loathed character like Tingle could continue to get work. For our part, we adore the idea that a 35-year-old man obsessed with fairies continues to appear in Nintendo games, though we get that not all of you share our adoration. You're ju...

Let's face it: the vast majority of games don't really have particularly cool or clever titles. Often, they're just Thing: More Specific or Perhaps More General Thing, because colons add weight and authority, you know. Or at least the appeal of more words. Those titles that take the approach of fewe...

U.S.-based reader Sandy recently contacted us with a quandary: s/he (sorry, Sandy, we weren't sure!) is desperately attempting to track down a new copy of Billiard Action. Unfortunately, there appears to be one major obstacle: the game is only available in the UK and Europe, and Sandy is struggling ...

The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handhelds and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com. We've already seen cosplay outfits for Nintendo DS figures like Dr. Kawa...

Nintendo might well have created some of the most enduring characters of all time, but it's more than capable of concocting annoying ones. At least, that's the message we drew from Cracked.com's list of video game characters that inspire rage -- of the fifteen personalities listed, around half appea...

It might never get released in the States, but that won't stop MTV's Stephen Totilo from dissecting Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, the Nintendo DS anti-Zelda game that's, apparently, all about the Benjamins. According to Totilo, Rosy Rupeeland makes money the center of everything. Tingle...

When we saw this yesterday, we couldn't help but feel a stab of jealousy, because there are loads of people out there touching Tingle -- and we're not among them. Tomorrow, loads more will join in the fun. Are you among them? You lucky European gamers (how often do we get to say that? bask in your m...

This is such a good week for releases that we're not sure if we'd rather be here at home or over in Europe, where DS owners can get a taste of Tingle this week! Not that we're displeased with the array of titles available anywhere, frankly. If only every week could be this week. Except then we wo...

European and Japanese game, Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland has a new trailer showing the too-hot-for-America RPG. While no U.S. release has been mentioned, Tingle importers should at least be able to read the English in the European version, due September 14. That's assuming fans of Tingle c...

Nintendo Europe has officially announced that Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland will be heading to the DS there on Sept. 14. They did mention this before, but now it's like really official because it came in a press release. We currently have no release info from Nintendo of America, which ki...

We reported that Tingle's Rosey Rupeeland would be released in Europe on the 19th of September. Apparently, Tingle has drawn a really good map from Japan to Nintendo of Europe, because the game is actually coming out on the 13th. Kooloo-limpah! Why are we so excited? Well, you see, many people who...

Ever lie about what you're playing? Say, for instance, you're playing Pokemon, which is widely regarded among the non-gaming population (and certain contingents of the gaming population) as for babies, and you, as a non-baby, are asked what's in your DS by a friend. Do you say something distinctl...

Nintendo of Japan's super-cool Club Nintendo has yet another weird/amazing DS title that North America and Europe will probably never see. First, it was the Game & Watch Collection, followed by the less desirable but still enticing Tingle's Balloon Fight. And now, the special Japan-only point-re...

With the news -- following long-discussed rumors of a non-Japanese release -- that Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland is on its way to a European release, we figured it might be a good time to resurrect discussion of a US release. Of course, that probably hinges on whether or not NoA believes i...
