EDISON, NJ, October 30, 2006 - Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of digital entertainment products and content, today announced that it will be publishing Cooking Mama: Cook Off for the Wii home video console from Nintendo®. Scheduled for release early next year, Cooking Mama: Cook Off is a follow up to the award-winning Nintendo DS predecessor that is being showcased in approximately 10,000 retail demo kiosks nationwide in November.
"Since its introduction last month, Cooking Mama for the Nintendo DS has won people over with its fun, addictive gameplay and innovative use of the Touch Screen," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing. "Cooking Mama: Cook Off for the Wii console similarly integrates the unique Wii Remote while layering on new features--including multiplayer and a full range of international cuisine--that fans are hungry for."
Making special use of the Wii Remote, Cooking Mama: Cook Off is an entertaining blend of mashing, slicing, chopping and stirring as players create more than 300 real-world recipes from 10 different nations. New realistic graphics and real-time cooking effects lend authenticity to player creations and help budding chefs determine when food is overcooked. Best of all, Cooking Mama: Cook Off offers 2-player kitchen competitions to determine who can cook the best meal the fastest.
Developed by OfficeCreate and licensed from Taito, Cooking Mama: Cook Off joins Bust-A-Move Bash! as one of Majesco's premier titles for the Wii. More information about Majesco's exciting line of products can be found online at www.majescoentertainment.com.
