While he watches a sales program on television, the man learns of a book that is deemed to make its readers popular amongst the ladies.
He orders the book, but he gets sucked into the world of a picture book when he opens it and transforms into Tingle.
Since then, there have been two sequels to the game and a DSi Ware app.
While all three games share Tingle as the main character, the gameplay is different with each installment.
It is centered on Tingle, who originally appeared as a supporting character in Majora's Mask.
