Rising Star Games is partnering with Office Create on the localization of Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop. It’s coming to USA, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East in April.

We’ve included an overview and trailer for Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop below.

“In Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop players make and create a wide assortment of delicious looking sweets and puddings, and serve customers in the shop to keep them happy! There are 60 different recipes to create by taking part in over 160 different mini-games. Players use the Nintendo 3DS™ stylus and even the microphone to cool, slice, stir, bake and decorate their creations. And just like always, don’t worry if you make a mistake – Mama will fix it for you!

Sweets can be arranged and displayed in the sweet shop, to provide to your customers and to keep them happy. The more sweets you create and complete, the more your shop expands.

This information comes from Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima…

As for the future of the Nintendo 3DS business, Nintendo 3DS family hardware has continued to spread through our markets, reaching sales of 62 million units worldwide. Our efforts will focus on the opportunities to take advantage of this install base.

We will continue to introduce new titles that players can enjoy for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. We have heard speculation that Nintendo Switch will replace the Nintendo 3DS, as both are game systems that can be played outside the home, but Nintendo 3DS has unique characteristics that differ from those of Nintendo Switch. Furthermore, the
price points and play experiences offered by the two systems are different and we do not see them as being in direct competition. We plan to continue both businesses separately and in parallel.

This information comes from Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima…

This graph shows Nintendo 3DS hardware and software sell-through in Japan from April 2016 through the final week of the calendar year, divided by quarters and compared year-on-year. In looking back on the life-to-date performance of Nintendo 3DS, hardware spread through the Japanese market first before the U.S. and European markets. For the first two quarters, both hardware and software maintained lower trends than the previous year, but for the third quarter, which also includes the holiday period, the release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon drove software sales higher than the previous year, and hardware sales did not lose momentum.

Note: Nintendo 3DS hardware includes the New 3DS, Nintendo 3DS, the New Nintendo 3DS XL, the Nintendo 3DS, the Nintendo 3DS XL and the Nintendo 2DS systems.

Note: Due to the calendar differences, FY16Q3 contains one more week than FY17Q3. Note: FY = Fiscal year (April through March of the following year)
