Nintendo makes the 'net Tingle

Nintendo slings open the doors of its frankly bonkers new Tingle RPG promo site

Despite all the moaning accompanying Nintendo's announcement that Zelda: Twilight Princess was set to recieve a delay last year, you can't help but be impressed with its way of saying 'sorry'. Instead of some shabby flowers, a box of Quality Street and some resigned slap and tickle later on, Nintendo's slinging not one, not two, but THREE new Zelda titles our way this year.

Obviously, Twilight Princess on Wii and GameCube and Phantom Hourglass on DS are the ones we've been focussing on. However, deep in the bowels of Nintendo HQ, Zelda's much-misunderstood fairy hero, Tingle, has been getting his very own - and frankly deeply disturbing - RPG known as Fresh Tingle's Rose Colored Rupee Land, due to hit DS later this year, in Japan at least.

Now, the company has tossed open the doors of its official - and utterly bonkers - new Tingle game website and it's quite a sight to behold. Taking the form of a Rupee-collect-a-thon (as far as we can tell amongst all the Japanese), you can talk to some of the game's characters, watch a bunch of massively inexplicable videos and admire what we can only assume is Link with a huge pair of breasts.

No word whether Fresh Tingle's Rose Colored Rupee Land is set for Western release (but we really, really hope it is, Nintendo), so for now, why not go and revel in the website's utter weirdness.
