The Legend of Zelda's Tingle was going to star in a horror game

The project was suggested by the Japanese studio Vanpool in 2010.

The picturesque Tingle is one of the most extravagant and enigmatic characters in The Legend of Zelda saga. In his day, the main person in charge of the franchise already spoke about the origins of Tingle, which due to its appearance and lively way of behaving has always been associated with colorful productions.However, surprisingly, years ago the possibility of creating a horror video game starring Tingle was considered.


He has been the veteran producer of Nintendo, Kensuke tanabe, the one who broke the news when talking about Japanese study work Vanpool, who have created two adventures to date starring the unique Tingle. "It was about eight years ago; we were developing a horror game with Vanpool that was going to have Tingle as the main character." The creative has not provided more details about this production, only indicating that the game was "canceled for various reasons" that he has not specified.


Recently the Vanpool team has released on Nintendo 3DS the interesting Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers, a video game in whose analysis we highlight "it suffers from some repetition and some indefiniteness in its proposal, but that for everything else is a very interesting launch for 3DS , with a long duration and, we must not forget it, a fantastic humor ".
