A Horror Game Starring Tingle Was Actually In Development At Nintendo

Tingle may not represent what a typical hero might look like, but that hasn’t stopped him from appearing as the flagship character of his very own adventures. In fact, Nintendo and Vanpool were actually working a horror game that revolved around the infamous fairy-loving man from The Legend of Zelda series. Unfortunately, for Tingle fans, the project was never fully realized and ultimately canned by the development team.

“Looking back eight years ago, we were developing a horror game with Vanpool that starred Tingle as the main character,” explains Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe. “But that project was canceled due to a variety of reasons.”

    1. Just make an Eternal Darkness sequel and have Tingle in there in some way, it’ll be a lot easier.

      1. Canned for a variety of reasons? Is Tingle one of them? Or was he the sole reason it was labeled a horror game?

        1. I’m still disgusted that there was never a European (English) release of Tingle’s Love Balloon Trip (if that’s the right title). Because I really liked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland, once I understood the bodyguard system and how it worked.

        2. Just thinking about that whole idea is just wrong. “Tingle’s Spandex Is Marvelous the game” Join tingle to explore areas with jump scares and hidden secrets to find tingle’s missing spandex outfits with vocals provided by George Takei as tingle. rated F for fucked up.

        3. He looks like that youtuber FIlthy frank.

          Would be cool if we can get some game out of it, something crazy and insane.

        4. “Looking back eight years ago, we were developing a horror game with Vanpool that starred Tingle as the main character,” explains Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe. “But that project was canceled due to a variety of reasons.”

          There’s your answer! It was Tanabe striking again over this bullshit. Paper Mario fans still haven’t been healed yet fam?
