Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop

Freshly baked for European store shelves.

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, 13th November 2009 - 505 Games today announced that our beloved chef, Mama, is once again ready to cook up a storm in her kitchen. Cooking Mama 3, developed by Cooking Mama Ltd. , is now available across Europe exclusively for Nintendo DS™.

Cooking Mama 3 offers players a brand new gameplay experience, improved graphics and a multiplayer mode supporting up to four players. The game also boasts over 80 recipes and 200 minigames.

Cooking Mama 3 has double the amount of mini-games than Cooking Mama 2 and the new features show players that it can be fun to shop and also allow players to be more creative with Mama!” commented Takeshi Nagashima, President, Cooking Mama Ltd.

Cooking Mama 3 features three exciting new game modes:

Let’s Shop: Assist Mama in the kitchen by shopping for delicious ingredients. Will you be able to remember what was on the recipe shopping list?

Let’s Match: Select two ingredients and Mama will come up with a flavoursome recipe which includes both of your chosen ingredients.

Cooking Contest: Mama will set you a challenge. See if you can beat the challenge and the clock!

In Gardening Mama, players learnt how to grow fruit and vegetables. Transfer your fresh fruit and vegetables from Gardening Mama to Cooking Mama 3 to unlock tasty recipes to cook in Mama’s kitchen.

Cooking Mama and 505 Games go together like salt and pepper. It’s no exaggeration to say that given the seasonality of the release, we are expecting big things from Mama this Christmas,” commented Victoria Martin, Global Brand Manager 505 Games. “ Cooking Mama 3 brings something new to the consumer while retaining that magic that has made the brand such a stunning success.”

The Mama brand has enjoyed massive commercial success selling over 2.5m units across Europe since launch. Originally released in December 2006 on Nintendo DS™ Cooking Mama and in May 2007 on Wii™, Cooking Mama is an original and fun title that boasts immediate ‘pick up and play’ cooking action.

To date, Cooking Mama remains the highest selling third party Nintendo DS™ title of all time. Cooking Mama 2 on Nintendo DS™ and Cooking Mama 2: World Kitchen on Wii™ built on the huge success of the original Mama adventure delivering fun and challenging game play for players of any age or skill level. In March 2009 the Mama brand expanded out from the kitchen as Gardening Mama launched on Nintendo DS™ once again growing the loyal fan base.

Cooking Mama 3 is published by 505 Games Ltd. and releases today exclusively on the Nintendo DS™.
