This is a blog that we 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.

This is an unofficial fan project. We are in no way affiliated with Nintendo or Vanpool, and are doing this completely for free.

[Get Ready]

Hey everyone!

We've been working hard over the last month to put the finishing touches on the translation patch. At the moment, both the script and graphics are 100% translated. We're currently conducting a final beta test within the team before the first release of the patch.

As we begin to wrap up the project, I'd just like to thank everyone who's been involved with the project over the last 5 years, especially the main team. Without them, there's no way that this would've ever been completed. This includes waldrumpus, DaVince, chir-miru, masterofzoroark, Rimbamboo, and zell0s. I'll write a more detailed post very soon to thank everyone that was involved, because this really was a team effort.

I can't give a concrete release date, but it will be within the next few days. The exact day will depend on how many bugs/errors we find as we test the game.

Merry Christmas to everyone!


  1. You just made my Christmas. Thank you all for all of your hard work!

  2. Congratulations !!!
    What an amazing gift for us all !!!

  3. Thanks so much to the team for all your hard work! I can't wait to finally play this.

  4. Can't believe I only discovered about that project in the last year or so, when it has been going on for much longer. I had bought an official copy of the game back when it was still relatively recent because I was hoping that, as a Zelda related game, it would eventually get fan translated and I could then play it in English, and I'm glad that they day is now so close. Thanks for all the hard work, team!

  5. I have been following the project for about 4.5 years and I must say that I'm very happy this is finally completed! All of you guys rock and deserve all of the praise you can get! To do something so difficult, spend so much of your time doing it and expect nothing in return is beautiful and I'm really REALLY grateful for all of you! Thank you so much for your hard work <3

  6. Thank you guys for never giving up on this project. I'm so looking forward to it.

  7. It's been years since I've come across this project. Thanks for your dedication.

  8. Oh my goodness! This will be the best Christmas ever. Thank you so much for all your hard work, I can't wait to play it!

  9. Really looking forward to enjoying all of your hard work! Thank you so much for doing this, everyone involved.

  10. Thanks everyone!

    We wanted to have the patch released on Christmas, but we discovered a crash a couple days ago that took a while to fix. We're currently wrapping up testing and should have it out before the new year.

    1. Take your time, you've spent years working on this, no sense rushing it now.

  11. I hope to see a reproduction cart made of this

  12. This site has been on my RSS feed for a long time - thanks for all your hard work.
