Welcome!

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.

The day you've all been waiting for

Well, I was planning on writing a long post thanking everyone and reminiscing about the last 5 years that I worked on this project. Long story short: bad stuff happened during testing, and I've been busy fixing it over the last few days.

You guys probably just want to get to the good part anyways, right?

So without further ado, we're proud to announce the first release of the Ripened Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love English translation patch! 

Well, what are you waiting for? Head over to the brand new Releases section and grab the patch for yourself!

  1. This is a good day :D

    My sincere thanks to all members of Team Tingle, and especially our lead TingleFan, who worked so hard to coordinate everything and get this project done.

    Hope this makes everyone's start into 2018 a little sweeter 🥂

  4. I've been quietly following from the shadows since the project was announced and this is my first time commenting. Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland is one of my absolute favorite DS games (and a criminally underappreciated one!) so imagine my joy of hearing that someone is translating the sequel that got left overseas. And now the wait is over!

    Thank you for all the hard work! Seriously, a HUGE thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone involved with the project and happy new year! What a way to end 2017.

  5. So I've been playing this all day and just got to the quick quiz. Is there any chance you could post the answers to that? I'm not sure if they're supposed to be in the original text or if I just can't quite get the exact right word in English or what.

    2. See TingleFan's excellent and definitive answer with all the correct answers and their accepted spellings straight from the game's code.
      But I'd also like to plug my guide of the game which you can find here: https://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/961165-irodzuki-tincle-no-koi-no-balloon-trip/faqs

      I made an effort to bring it up to date with all the new names introduced by our patch; if you spot any inconsistencies or mistakes, please send them to me.

  9. I can't believe this is finally out! Really excited to try this out soon. Been watching this project for many years, and I'm so glad I was wrong when I thought it died a few years ago! Might wait to play it until I get an R4 card. And I might play through Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland to prepare myself as well. Overall, awesome job guys! It's been awesome seeing the work you've put into this. I'm sure it's nice knowing that all your hard work has finally paid off and the translation is finally out. Thank you to everyone who's been involved in this process. You guys have done an amazing job.

  20. Thanks a lot for all the hard work on this patch!

    While testing on DesMuMe (and the Wii U VC emulator), the game doesn't seem to want to go past the name entry screen.

    Is this a problem any of you have encountered before? It certainly looks like copy protection.

  21. Thanks for this guys. Gonna get on this tonight.

  22. First, thank you for all your hard work, I've really been enjoying this. But second, I'm playing on OpenEmu for Mac, and the game consistently freezes shortly after Lion's flashback at the castle. I've tried ballooning out and restarting the emulation, I'm not sure what else to do.

    1. Thanks for making us aware of this issue; we'll try to reproduce it and see if we can fix it!

    2. The bug has been fixed - as soon as we finish up some other stuff that we want to incorporate into the update, a new patch will be released. (It should be out within 24 hours at the latest)

      Thank you for bringing it to our attention!
