Sends messages to other players via Miiverse
The Tingle Bottle is an item exclusive to The Wind Waker HD.
Location and Uses
The Tingle Bottle replaces the Tingle Tuner from the original The Wind Waker. It is a green bottle shaped like Tingle's head, with the cork resembling the Tingle Balloon. Like the Tingle Tuner, it is given to Link by Tingle for releasing him from the Windfall Island jail.
The Bottle is used to send messages to other players of The Wind Waker HD. Messages and screenshots are inserted into the bottle and it is thrown until it disappears. A random player then receives the message in a bottle via Miiverse.
If used on land, the Tingle Bottle will simply bounce around before disappearing. When thrown on water, the Tingle Bottle will float momentarily before disappearing and if a Tingle Bottle is thrown into lava, the Tingle Bottle will disappear immediately. Tingle Bottles typically appear in bodies of water, but they may also appear in select places on land, such as underneath a Tree. When a Tingle Bottle is obtained, a small icon appears below Link's Heart gauge with a number signifying how many messages that the young hero has on Miiverse. These messages can be checked from the inventory's "Bottles" screen. The maximum amount of Tingle Bottles that can be displayed is 11, though Link may still find and collect Tingle Bottles regardless.
As of November 7, 2017, with the discontinuation of all Miiverse features, the Tingle Bottle is no longer useable, making it completely useless as an item.

- "The one new feature that Nintendo was willing to tout is a new Tingle focused item called the "Tingle Bottle". The gamepad can be used to create Miiverse posts. Put the post in the bottle, throw it in the ocean, and it will show up randomly in another person's game. Bottle's [sic] will show up in your game as well. You can stuff in-game screenshots in bottles too." — Wind Waker HD is 1080p, has new 'Tingle Bottle' features, Destructoid, published 2013-06-11, retrieved 2013-06-12.
