Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit Cooking Up a Fall Frenzy on 3DS

In an announcement which surprises just about no one, Majesco Entertainment Company has announced that the fifth instalment of their Cooking Mama game series—Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit—will be released this September for the Nintendo 3DS.

The game franchise has sold over 13 million copies around the world, and the fifth instalment has been available in Japan (and selling quite well) for some time now, so it comes as no surprise that we’re seeing it across the shores. This particular instalment has a number of new features and modes, including the intriguingly named “Cooking Dojo.”

Here’s a snippet from the official announcement:

Join Mama, the original kitchen diva who created the cooking genre, in Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit and unlock 60+ recipes to perfect a kaleidoscope of foods including appetizers, drinks, main courses, and desserts. Cook your way through classic fare, exotic cultural dishes and sweet treats including: pork cutlet rice bowl, chicken nuggets, barbeque skewers, pumpkin gratin, raisin bread, Hawaiian pancakes, gingerbread cookies, and much more! Step out of the kitchen and help Mama with more than 30 new activities around the Burger Shop and house: feed the pets, deliver orders, serve ice cream, organize crafts, even play word games!”


Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit features intuitive stylus-based play across six modes, including the new Cooking Dojo mode where Mama slips into her gi for some serious culinary training.  You can also customize your kitchen and Mama’s outfit with decorations and outfits earned through SpotPass. What’s more, single cart download play with up to three friends enables you to cook off with fellow chefs to share the experience.”


While we don’t have an official release date beyond “September,” that’s still a fairly solid target to hit. Get ready to show off some new skills in the (virtual) kitchen this Fall!
