Famitsu Senses More Tingle From Nintendo

Nintendo's upcoming line-up may have more than just new appearances from Link, Mario and Samus, as the venerable fairy Tingle from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask may be starring in a new game of his own.

The newest issue of Famitsu teases Tingle's return, offering little more than an elfin sprite, the text "Fairy?" in Japanese, Nintendo of Japan's official URL and a platform—the Nintendo DS. Tingle's already been given star treatment in two DS games, Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland and Tingle's Balloon Fight DS, the latter a Club Nintendo of Japan exclusive.

A new Tingle game may seem like the perfect fit on Nintendo's downloadable DSiWare service, but this teaser appears to be for a full-fledged title. Perhaps this one will come to America. Even if it doesn't, we're likely to see this haunting scenario played out once again.

Nothing on the official Nintendo site yet, but perhaps when the mag hits newsstands later this week, we'll know more.
