Milton Keynes, 9th September – 505 Games today announced that for the very first time everyone’s favourite celebrity chef will return to the kitchen in time for the festive season, bringing three new game modes with her.

For the first time ever Mama will be filling Christmas stockings with her fabulous brand of culinary creations as Cooking Mama 3 hits stores from 13th November. Fans of the world famous kitchen antics will be able to get their hands on the next chapter in Mama’s recipe book earlier than ever and take delight in cooking up a storm exclusively on the Nintendo DS™ while the rest of the family slave over Christmas lunch!

After a blossoming outdoor spell in the hugely successful Gardening Mama, our favourite culinary queen is back in the kitchen tantalising taste buds and testing cooking skills with a whole new cooking adventure. As well as boasting over 80 recipes, 200 mini-games, four player multiplayer (using single cart Nintendo DS Download play) and classic Mama game play, Cooking Mama 3 now offers three totally new game modes.

Let’s Match!
Have you remembered what Mama has taught you? It’s your time to prove your worth in the kitchen as you are challenged to choose ingredients from a list then use steps from other dishes to create your mystery dish.

Let’s Shop!
Mama’s got to get on with the cooking and there’s no time to get to the shops. Can you help her out? Dash to the supermarket and grab all the ingredients for Mama’s world famous dishes while avoiding other shoppers, clearing up spillages and helping at the checkout. Run out of time and you’ll forget what Mama asked you to get!

Cooking Contest
It’s time to sharpen those cooking skills and face off in timed challenges to determine who the fastest chef is! How many eggs can you break? How many potatoes can you peel? How many prawns can you wrap? Challenge three of your friends to beat your highest score in local Wi-Fi play.

Cooking Mama 3 will be released on 13th November across Europe exclusively on Nintendo DS.
