Tingle, map-seller in The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask, is a man in his mid-30s who wears a green fairy suit. Presumed by some—incorrectly, it turns out—to be gay, he is one of Nintendo's most unusual characters. I recently asked Nintendo's top Zelda creator what Tingle's origins were.

Everyone's favorite 35 year-old green-tights-wearing bachelor is getting not one, but two spin off titles. That's right, two Tingle games.
