Cooking Mama: You've Gotta Love Japanese Games

Let me just say that I love some aspects of Japanese culture. I love Japanese pop music, I've always had a thing for anime, and I love a culture that could produce games where your object is to chop vegetables and prepare recipes. Wacky, but I love it! That said, I just came across a new game for the Nintendo DS to be published later this year by Majesco, called Cooking Mama. Cooking? Huh. This is the description courtesy of GameSpy:

Playing as a female chef, you have to prepare the food (slicing the vegetables, slicing the meat), then cook it on the stove. Use the stylus as their master kitchen tool to chop, slice, pan fry, knead, grate, mash, peel and more. With touchscreen play, you can do things such as shake the skillet for an omelet and dip tempura in the oil. Share recipes with up to 4 other people or transfer a saved game to a friend via the DS wireless link.

For a real treat, click on over to GameSpy and check out the movie for the game, it's totally wonky.
