Global video game publisher 505 Games has today announced the latest new arrivals in the celebrated Cooking Mama series.
Cooking Mama World: Babysitting Mama for Nintendo Wii and Cooking Mama World: Hobbies & Fun for Nintendo DS will both offer fans of the eponymous ‘Mama’ another two adventures into her world of domestic bliss when they are both released on 12th November 2010.
Cooking Mama World: Babysitting Mama is the first videogame to come bundled with a life-sized baby doll peripheral designed exclusively by Cooking Mama Limited. Wii owners will place the Wii RemoteTM into a secure pouch in the doll’s back to bring it to life! Each doll is hand stitched; making no two babies exactly the same.
Playing along with Mama, players will have to follow instructions to carry out all the duties of a diligent baby sitter, including feeding your baby food, playing with toy blocks, changing nappies and helping baby take its first steps. The on-screen baby meter will display baby’s mood and show how well it is being cared for by giggling and smiling all the way down to crying. Over fifty different challenges are available which can also be tackled in multiplayer mode, allowing two babysitters to go head to head to see who has the best handle on caring for little ones under Mama’s watchful eye.
Cooking Mama World: Hobbies & Fun will give DS owners the chance to try their hand a variety of home crafting activities such as pottery, woodwork, jewellery design, origami and many more. Following Mama’s careful instructions, players will be shown how to create a selection of gadgets and trinkets, including a bird box, necklace, kaleidoscope, cushions and patchwork quilts.
“The Cooking Mama games have been an unprecedented success for us as a company and our fans are always keen to see what we have come up with next,” commented Juliette Fielder, Senior Product Manager, 505 Games. “The direction we’ve taken with the series will give gamers a new take on Mama, particularly as Babysitting Mama will provide the world’s first baby peripheral!”
Both Cooking Mama World: Babysitting Mama and Cooking Mama World: Hobbies & Fun will be published by 505 Games on 12th November, for Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS respectively.
