Flaming eyes on your phone: Cooking Mama goes mobile

North Americans: You'll just have to take my word on this, but (some) Japanese mobile phone games are incredible. At TGS, we played fully-3D, motion-sensitive titles that had some actual depth and gameplay, and we came away totally jealous. As hard as it is for some of us (especially North Americans) to understand, good games can be made for mobile phones. I don't know if the US version of Cooking Mama Mobile falls into this category, but we can always hope.

Taito confirms that Cooking Mama is coming to US cell phones in early 2008, and is supposed to be a simplified version of the popular Nintendo DS game.

"Given the success of Cooking Mama on other platforms, Cooking Mama is sure to be a hit on
wireless phones as well," said Keiji Fujita, co-producer of Cooking Mama. "The style of gameplay is accessible and fun for casual and serious gamers of all ages."

It's not clear how different the US version will be from the Japanese version, as many US mobile phones lack the motion sensing that better Japanese phones sport. It might be fun to cook up some dishes while we're on the go, but I hope we're not stuck hitting "5" and "#" to chop onions and fry pork chops.

prepare ingredients, then combine, cook and present
the final meal. Let's get cooking, Mama!

individual carriers.
