Cooking Mama for Nintendo Switch will include vegetarian options

Can you make an Impossible Burger though??

More details are surfacing regarding the next title in the delightful Cooking Mama series. Following on from the previously-noted ratings board entry for Cooking Mama: Cookstar, a press release from publisher Planet Digital Partners includes deets on Cooking Mama: Coming Home to Mama, possibly the U.S. localisation of the same game.

In the since-deleted presser, Cookstar/Coming Home to Mama is described as a reboot of the series, and will once again feature a selection of fun minigames as players attempt to impress the fire-eyed chef with their culinary skills. Of note, however, is that the new game will feature a vegetarian mode, allowing players to forego meat products in their dishes.

“Players who do not wish to prepare meals with meat ingredients will be able to cook creative, alternate meatless recipes”, noted the statement. “Players will be able to cook in both ‘Traditional Mode’ and ‘Vegetarian Mode’ and blend motion gestures from the Nintendo Switch with traditional controls for an immersive meal prep and cooking experience through each minigame played.”

Although there is no confirmation that Greggs’ vegan sausage rolls will be on the menu, this is still a great, inclusive idea and kudos to the developers for adding the option to the series. Cooking Mama: Coming Home to Mama/ Cooking Mama: Cookstar is currently in the oven for future release on Nintendo Switch.
