Nintendo started development on a Tingle Horror game, then cancelled it

Seems like everyone's favorite map seller just can't a break.

Go Nintendo wrote:Nintendo's Kensuke Tanabe revealed a really interesting tidbit in an interview with Kotaku. Tingle, everyone's favorite Legend of Zelda character, was going to get a starring role in yet another title. The game was being worked on by both Nintendo and Vanpool, who they teamed up with recently for Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers.
“Looking back eight years ago, we were developing a horror game with Vanpool that starred Tingle as the main character, but that project was canceled due to a variety of reasons.”
Tanabe doesn't say what platform the game was in development for, but if they were working on it in 2010, you'd imagine the platform would be 3DS. Poor Tingle, he never got the love he truly deserved.


I think pulling the plug on this project was the right idea due to Tingle not being popular in the west and Vanpool ended up making the first Diilon game over this Tingle game.
