That game has been out for a very long time, but it was only released in Japan and Europe.Actually, I've heard that they are making a Zelda game for the DS with a lot of Tingle in it:
Tingle's Freshly Picked Rosy Rupeeland
Could be or could not be a rumor. And Geez, however they fit that title on a game box i'll never know!
Anyway, I found out about it on Wikipedia, so, if you're interested, you can check it out.

Also, I think that if Tingle makes an appearance in a Zelda game again, it's probably in one of the cel-shaded/cartoonish titles, like a post PH game... I don't imagine him in a realistic game
But I believe I know what you mean; like TP realistic. I don't see Tingle being in a TP-like game. Its atmosphere was just too dark and moody for Tingle. So I wouldn't say that he wouldn't be in a realistic looking game again, just not that it would have the same feeling that TP did.
I don't quite remember. It might have been a developer interview. More or less, it's an easter egg.
