International videogame publisher 505 Games has proudly announced that the eponymous Cooking Mama will return once again with two brand new titles; Cooking Mama 4 for 3DS and Cooking Mama World: Outdoor Adventures for DS.
Every gamer’s favourite domestic goddess is back in the kitchen working her magic, and this time the kitchen gloves are also off in an all new outdoor environment.
Mama returns to doing what she does best; turning budding chefs into culinary artists, for the first time in 3D via the unique Nintendo 3DS display in Cooking Mama 4. Hundreds of new dishes are available to master, and now combine into brand new creations. Certain combinations will unlock new recipes and minigames, challenging players to engage their kitchen creativity as well as their chopping skills and up to four players can compete to chase high scores and topple existing records in Challenge Mode.
In Cooking Mama World: Outdoor Adventures, join Mama and her family as they explore Adventure Island through hundreds of outdoor mini-games, 38 stages and untold treasure and secrets to uncover. Five areas on the island contain a variety of challenges including; Cooking – cutting and peeling fruit, grilling fish and clams on the barbeque, Making – create a spider catcher, craft a net or build a bonfire, Action – catch fish, cut down trees and pick flowers, Answer – identify jungle objects and creatures! Players will be able to decorate their base camp with treasure they uncover on the island and create their own camping picture book to document their discoveries.
“Our longstanding relationship with Cooking Mama Limited has made Mama a symbol of our company and a flagship franchise for our business,” commented Ralph Pitt-Stanley, Commercial Director, 505 Games. “The new announcements in the series are always a pillar event in our release calendar, and with Mama’s long awaited appearance on 3DS, this year will be no exception.”
Both Cooking Mama 4 for 3DS and Cooking Mama World: Outdoor Adventures for DS will be released this winter in time for the holiday season.
