Ever since I first discovered publisher Planet Digital’s article on their new acquisition of Cooking Mama, with a upcoming Switch game titled Cooking Mama: Coming Home to Mama and found that the Australian Classification filed for the rating of Cooking Mama: Cookstar by publisher Planet Entertainment and developer First Playable Productions, there has been some confusion with other news outlets scrambling for more information.
I have been in contact with the CEO of Planet Entertainment, Steve Grossman, and have received confirmation that Cooking Mama is coming to both PS4 and the Nintendo Switch in 2019 and that they will be publishing a press release in two weeks from now with new footage and a trailer. Hopefully this will clear everything up. Unfortunately, the European Amazon site has leaked some screenshots and information about the game as it is listed right here for pre-order. Although the information within the listings has since been removed, see below for the details and gameplay features from Google’s German-English translation I was able to get.
