In September, Majesco Entertainment announced that it would support the Wii with two games--a next-gen version of the bubble-bursting Bust-A-Move (now officially named Bust-A-Move Bash!) and an unnamed game. Today, the publisher took the lid off the second title by announcing that it would be bringing the Wii version of Cooking Mama over to the US.
Licensed to Majesco by Taito, Cooking Mama: Cook Off is a console version of the quirky Cooking Mama for the DS, which saw gamers prepare meals using the handheld's stylus. Cook Off will incorporate the Wiimote for a variety of culinary exercises including mashing, slicing, chopping, and stirring--simulating the action with the console's wireless remote will be translated on the screen.
Gamers won't starve for content--Cook Off will feature more than 300 real-world recipes from 10 different countries. Those who want to hold their own Iron Chef battles will be able to go head-to-head in a two-player mode.
Cooking Mama: Cook Off has not yet been rated or priced and will be available in "early 2007."
