Cooking Mama Stirs Up Kitchen Magic on 3DS, Goes Camping on DS This Fall


Majesco is cooking up even more mini-game fun this fall with the releases of two new Mama games.

Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures will further extend the hit casual game series on the Nintendo DS, while the fourth main franchise installment, Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic for the 3DS, will serve up what is surely only the first of many Mama games for Nintendo’s latest handheld sensation. In fact, Majesco says there are three more unnamed cross-platform Mama games in development for 2012. The more Mama the better, I say!

“We’re very proud of the work we’ve put in to make the Mama brand one of the most successful and recognizable franchises in the industry,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco. “Gamers of all ages and backgrounds have been enjoying the Mama titles for years, and we think they’ll continue to do so with these next two additions as Mama explores new territories, be it the wild outdoors or the new technology the 3DS provides. With three additional cross-platform Mama skus planned for 2012, as well as the continued expansion of Cooking Mama Friend’s Café on Facebook, Majesco is committed long-term to this beloved franchise.”

Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic will feature more than 60 new recipes and more than 200 new culinary mini-games that’ll have you slicing, dicing, chopping, flipping, kneading and sauteing like a master chef…in 3D! Kitchen Magic will also put the 3DS gyroscope to use for additional interactions, such as flipping pans and cracking eggs.

Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures, on the other hand, will take Mama out of the kitchen and into the wild for a lesson in wilderness survival. Players will assume the role of the son or daughter of Mama and Papa, then proceed to complete 100 touch-screen mini-games spanning 38 levels set in the forests, mountains and seas of the great outdoors. Activities will include things like rock and tree climbing, spelunking, bug collecting, setting up a tent, crafting a fishing pole and using it to catch dinner, row boating and more.
