Gossip Stone: Should Tingle’s Tower Return In Future Titles?
Posted on October 14 2015 by Liam Orth
In Four Swords Adventures, you could unlock multiplayer mini-games by progressing through the story. When you progress far enough in a section of the world map, Tingle will do a fly-by and drop one of his towers somewhere on the map. Inside, you can play quite a few multiplayer mini-games (as many as you’ve unlocked) for a nice break from adventuring for a bit. The mini-games were a fun way to take a break from playing through the story and just having some fun with friends. That’s the subject of which I’d like to discuss; should Tingle’s Tower (or the concept) return in a future Zelda title? Hit the jump to check out more!
Tingle’s Tower held quite a few mini-games, some being more competitive than others. You could play tag, you could go monster hunting with your friends, you could even play a little volleyball with them! It’s a fun way to take it easy for a bit. The games you can unlock and play in Tingle’s Tower are: Bucking Broncos (a horse racing mini-game), Cucco Wranglers (round up cuccos and throw them in the pen), Monster Hunting (defeat the most enemies out of your friends), Hammer Tag (a good game of tag- with a hammer), Volley by Golly (it’s like playing tennis with Ganondorf- but with your friends), Mole Melee (it’s whack-a-mole), Monster Hunting Returns (as it implies- the return of Monster Hunt), and Bonus Course (Tingle’s very own mini-dungeon)!
The way I see it, I would love to have it return. I remember having such a blast with these mini-games, seeing this (or anything like it) return in a future Zelda game would definitely leave me satisfied. My favorite has to be Volley by Golly. Not sure why, it just brings back a lot of good memories. But anyways, I would definitely see to it that this would return if I could. But whatever happens, happens. Maybe they’ll bring something similar back in the future(?).
So then, what do you think? Would you like to see Tingle’s Tower, or anything like it return in a future Zelda game? Or are you fine with the adventure alone? Do you have something ese you wish they’d bring back? Let us know by sounding off in the comments!
