Nintendo 3DS owners are being handed an opportunity that many professionals yearn for, and this is not the first time said opportunity has been given away. Majesco previously let us garden with a celebrity in 3D, but now owners of Nintendo's handheld get the option to do with said celeb what she knows best. That's right, Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit! will launch on the Nintendo 3DS on September 16, 2014.
Celebrity chefs aren't entirely uncommon, what with people like Gordon Ramsay and the Cake Boss out in the world. Cooking Mama, however, puts the best to rest. Alongside Mama, players can use the Nintendo 3DS stylus to craft the greatest meal or snack known to man. My personal favorites are the heart brownies, but I digress. Apprentice cooks can also play various mini-games, ranging from entertaining cats and birds (not at once, however) to picking out Mama's outfit for the day.
When taking a break from the cooking, players can assist Mama in her burger joint, study -- a feature we suggest using on weekends to keep young minds fresh -- with word games and puzzles, or earn medals by beating times or goals in The Cooking Dojo. Bon Appetit! is one of few Nintendo 3DS titles that uses DS Download Play, so players can also become the teachers when playing with Cooking Mama-less friends.
Fans of the Cooking Mama series, or anyone else who wants to pick up this adorable little title, will be able to snag it starting on September 16, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. In the mean time, I think I am going to try making some of those heart brownies I mentioned earlier.
