    Tingle is a fat, 40-year-old midget who thinks he's a fairy.

    In Zelda: Wind Waker, he charges you outrageous sums of money for maps that are required to beat the game. It takes so much money that by the time you reach him (near the end of the game) you still don't have enough.

    In Zelda: Four Swords, every time gems appear, whether you drop them or are trying to reach them, Tingle flies over on a balloon and tries to steal them from you.

    He's famous for this incredibly creepy dance he does.

    Everyone hates Tingle.

    I just hope they don't follow the normal Japanese naming scheme (Touch! Kirby, Touch! Yoshi, Touch Dic, etc) and name it Touch Tingle.

    That's a lot of games.

    I wish they would come out with an email & IM client, maybe with a simple web browser, to use in hotspots.

    There are more games coming than those. I'm looking forward to Age of Empires -- altho I am having a great time with Advance Wars DS. Also the lawyer game sounds very interesting, and that brain thing you've got listed.

    The wifi gateway stuff - do I need to run some software on a PC, or is just an original AirPort enough? Will it only work with certain games?

    Geez...he was annoying enough in Majora's Mask for N64...why the heck is he becoming this huge character? If I remember right (from Majora's Mask), isn't he like a 40-year-old guy that's obsessed with fairies/elves so much that he ran off from his parents to become one. Hmm...

    HOLYCRAPGOD! RAINBOW ISLANDS DS!!!

    sweet monkies i loved that on the Amiga. next best thing to RodLands. if they made a new RodLands i would faint :eek:

    as for Tingle... i dunno about this. i totally hated the fella in Windwaker (though i liked his noises, pretty mental), never really played much of Majoras Mask. and its fun to pop his balloon in Smash Bros Melee. but now... well since this RPG was announced i'm looking forward to it. i dont mind Tingle. im sure theres some kind of in-joke with Nintendo there. a guy trying to be Link and all that... a joke on the countless sucky Zelda clones perhaps?

    I hope Konami's next Yu-Gi-Oh! game will use Nintendo's WiFi Connection Service...

    I am interested in that Tales game coming to DS. I loved Tales of Symphonia and I have been wanting to play more Tales games.

    I'm with you on this raggedjimmi, Rainbow Islands was awesome. Will be first in the queue for this!

    Not too keen on the Tingle idea though. He makes me want to break things every time he is on screen.

    Maybe that's where nintendo will make profit out of this game, by selling extra DS for frustrated Tinkle RPG players :D

    Does no-one else find Tingle very sinister?

    Middle-aged man...
    Trying to be a child...
    Whilst wearing strange clothes...
    Doing creepy dances.

    Court cases have been brough for less. :)

    I came in here looking expecting to see a "going out of business" announcement.

    How disappointing that it wasn't !

    Just Kidding, I love Nintendo, but the title scared me!

    You never know. Maybe some angry mother will sue Nintendo because her son played Tingle and he then trusted their neighbour.. hmm.

    Actually, the guy has gaming potential.. Think of it. He irritates people. He likes to annoy. Now, what if you get to play him. And annoy everybody else.. :D :D :D
