Cooking Mama: Cookstar

Hello, my beautiful bubbles and bobbles. This week on NEP, we’re gushing about Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Oni tries (and fails) to not talk about FE3H the entire episode, while Galen picks arbitrary battles as he defends Cooking Mama. Oni also gives some first impressions with the Grandia HD Collection, and the gang discusses all the game announcements and details we got this week! Could a Nintendo Direct be coming next month?
We finish things off by chatting about games with sequels where one was exponentially better than the other. Both Galen and Oni dive into their pasts to pull up some sore memories of their favorite games…

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through the algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

Amazon Germany has added in a listing for Cooking Mama: CookStar. Thanks to the new page, we have a bunch of new details about the game as well as first screenshots.

Here’s the full roundup (note that the information was translated by Google):

Cooking Mama: Cookstar was unearthed for Switch this past week thanks to a couple of classification filings. It seems that there was actually an announcement back in February, but no one noticed. Additionally, the game was known as “Cooking Mama: Coming Home to Mama” at the time.

Planet Digital Partners shared the news earlier this year, stating that Cooking Mama: Cookstar “will be the first game to integrate blockchain technology on major consoles.” The site mentions a few other details, including a “Vegetarian Mode”:

Last week, a new Cooking Mama game titled Cooking Mama: Cookstar was spotted from a rating in Australia. The classification didn’t provide any hints as to which platforms it’ll be released on, but it has now been rated for Switch in Germany. Planet Entertainment will be publishing.

Cooking Mama has been a mainstay on Nintendo platforms since the DS era. The last entry was Sweet Shop in 2007, which was made for DS.
