Los Angeles, Ca.- Sept. 28, 2007 - Test your cooking skills wherever you are when Cooking Mama TM , the popular fast-action cooking simulator is served up for your mobile phone! Taito Corporation is mixing up a simplified version of the Nintendo DS TM game that was named by IGN as the "Best DS Most Innovative Design of E3 2006." The game is expected to release in early 2008.
"Given the success of Cooking Mama on other platforms, Cooking Mama is sure to be a hit on wireless phones as well," said Keiji Fujita, co- producer of Cooking Mama. "The style of gameplay is accessible and fun for casual and serious gamers of all ages."
Cooking Mama challenges players to use the game controls as master kitchen tools to cook real-world dishes. Under Mama's watchful eye, players must first prepare ingredients, then combine, cook and present the final meal. Let's get cooking, Mama!
Cooking Mama is expected to be available on most major mobile carriers in the United States in early 2008. Pricing has yet to be determined by each of the individual carriers.
