If you thought making dinner in real life was a blast, wait 'til you see what you can do on a console. Majesco is bringing Cooking Mama: Cook Off to the Wii later this year and we have a healthy dose of new screens to serve. Game designers are determined to use the Wiimote to mimic just about every bodily motion or mundane activity we partake in on a daily basis and turning it into big fun and Cooking Mama looks to be no different.
Rather than being a “Wii-make” like the Trauma Center port from the DS, Cook Off was built from the ground-up to satisfy multiple cooks in the kitchen. For the Wii version, you’ll hold the Wiimote in different, yet completely natural ways to slice, chop, grate and stir your meals to make everything from international dishes to desserts. Also new to Cook Off is a Cooking Challenge Mode which pits you and a friend against each other, letting you satisfy your Iron Chef desires without a Japanese man taking a giant bite out of a pepper in your living room.
