Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland is an adventure game for the Nintendo DS and the first game in the spinoff Tingle series. It was developed by Vanpool and published by Nintendo. Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland was first released in Japan in 2006 and in 2007 in Europe. The game was never released in North America.
Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland stars Tingle, who goes on an adventure to Rupeeland after being offered to live there. The game reveals Tingle's transition from an ordinary middle-aged man into his green fairy persona. The game has a heavy emphasis on bartering, which must be done with the various people Tingle meets to advance the plot. Additionally, the setting is more contemporary than most in the The Legend of Zelda, having modern technology mixed in with locations resembling post-Industrial Revolution towns.
One day, a 35-year-old man is laying in his house, glum about how his life has so far amounted to nothing, when he is approaches by a large Rupee-headed spirit in the sky, who introduces himself as Uncle Rupee. Uncle Rupee offers to make the man's life better by taking him to "Rupeeland," a land said to be filled with endless riches, food, and beautiful women. To do so, he tells the man to throw as many Rupees as he can into a spring near his house, causing a tower to grow with the amount of Rupees he throws in while Uncle Rupee himself looks less and less shabby. Uncle Rupee gives the man a green jumpsuit and dubs him "Tingle," telling him to collect lots of Rupees. Tingle is helped by the pink-clad Pinkle, who can save his game.
Tingle goes across various lands, bartering, exploring, and occasionally fighting with the help of hireable bodyguards. Eventually, it is revealed that Uncle Rupee is evil, Pinkle is a Great Fairy he is holding prisoner, and Rupeeland is actually a desolate world. Tingle must then defeat Uncle Rupee in a battle.
