Happy New Year everyone!
As you might know, 2017 won't be just another year around here. This year is the year that the first complete patch will be released! The script is getting closer and closer to completion due to the hard work of waldrumpus, and the graphics are also moving along smoothly with me, zell0s, and chir-miru.
Hopefully you guys are excited, because I sure am. This translation patch has been, quite literally, years in the making. Soon Tingle fans everywhere will be able to play this awesome game!
Of course it will still be a little while, so don't jump on the hype train just yet!
We also saw a nice surprise over in the 3DS hacking scene that's relevant to us here. A NDS rom loader is being developed for the 3DS, which will allow you to run DS roms (and our translation patch) with only a 3DS or 2DS, no flashcart needed! You can read more about it here on GBAtemp if you're interested. I can't guarantee that Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love will end up being compatible with it, but it looks like there going for pretty much universal compatibility for DS roms.
And finally -
Many people have requested this, and I also alluded to it in one of my last posts.
here. The first release will only include the 1 Player mode and the Balloon Trip mode, but if enough interest is expressed I will also do the 2 Player DS Download Play mode.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
This is a blog that we will use to post news on our translation of "Ripened Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love". For those who don't know, it is a sequel to Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. Rupeeland was released in English, but Balloon Trip of Love wasn't.
*Please note all images/videos shown of the translation are not final and may be changed in the final patch.
