Publisher 505 Games today dons its chef’s hat and jaunty pinny to proudly announce the European release of Cooking Mama, the innovative cooking simulation that fans have already been wildly salivating over since its hugely successful debut in Japan and America.
Releasing in December on Nintendo DS, Cooking Mama puts the player in the role of superstar chef in training. Under Mama’s careful tuition and scrutiny, players will utilise the full functionality of Nintendo’s handheld system in order to prepare and create over seventy distinct and delicious dishes. The menu includes simple snacks such as fried eggs, to full cordon bleu-style culinary masterpieces.
Dishes are created by using the DS stylus as your all-in-one multipurpose kitchen tool. With it, players can chop, slice, pan fry, knead, grate, mash, tenderise, mix, peel, carve, roll and much more besides. Once the dish is ready, the stylus can be used to add finishing touches to the presentation at table before the dish is greedily consumed by Mama’s demanding customers. Blowing on the in-built DS microphone will cool a hot dish down and by combining existing recipes, players can create a vast menu fit for a banquet.
Cooking Mama, developed by Taito and published in Europe by 505 Games, releases on December 8th on Nintendo DS. A Nintendo Wii version, Cooking Mama: Cooking with International Friends, is planned for 2007.
