New news on Mama's newest game, when we have a release date which is just on the horizon too!


Damn that games looks funky as hell, since most people are speculating a new direct in March, maybe we could see Cooking Mama reveal trailer for Smash Bros to promote her new game? :pimp:

I just noticed there's an airfryer in the game now. Holy tomatoes on a crispy bun.
Sooooo now that we've learned there's an AC direct on Thursday, maybe, just maybe, Mama gets a reveal trailer at the end? I'm grasping at straws here, but both AC and Cooking Mama are simulation games sooooooooo....

Hmmm...I do remember playing the series back when I used to have a DS.

I wanna see how she'll go. Count me in.

I'm not counting on anything in an AC direct for smash right now, I don't think they'll add more than isabelle, too, but who knows, nintendo, or at least sakurai, does weird things sometimes :p

Cooking Mama Cookstar supposedly released but it was already pulled digitally?

What is happening with Mama?

Maybe Mama ended up catching the Corona Virus and her release dates are all over the place as a result :(

Did some digging and apparently the game is mining Crypto Currency and some other shenanigans.

Why a Cooking Mama game of all things though?

Must be because they thought a Cooking Mama game would go under the radar, plus it's not an unknown IP that would at least in theory have people mining Cryptos with it.

I thought this was already known though? I remember reading about it a couple of months back.

Then again, they super underplayed it in the marketing, so maybe it's a matter of deceptive advertising.

I knew it! The license has somehow been stolen under CMLTD's noses (or lack thereof)!

These thieves are also known as Planet Entertainment. It seemed weird that they didn't do anything noteworthy until a few years ago: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/company/205369-planet-entertainment

Basically took advantage of the lack of a CM entry on Switch to screw everyone over.

Sweet saviour on a heavenly stick, what a mess the Cooking Mama license has gotten itself into.
And I was waiting for a new Cooking Mama mainline game too, :(

but how do you steal a game license, advertise it for about a year, and release it, and only after releasing it does anyone say anything?

Cooking Mama is low-profile enough that barely anyone would notice except a subset of fans. CMLTD also hasn't done a new game since the mid-2010s, so that must have been grounds for "legally dead". I thought that most people would have noticed the crypto stuff far earlier (hell, I did, and didn't want to make a fuss about it).

Now that everything related to the game has been removed, we're dealing with a Cooking Mama game that never existed. The part that's the weirdest is a member of a known industrialist family leads the company that apparently made it.

Also, this is the funniest summary of the whole debacle: https://twitter.com/Gay_Furby/status/1246845494707585027

An update to the story

The blockchain might not have been why it was pulled, it could be the devs being lazy and ripping music off YouTube. Story link

Some more collection of whats going on and responses from the devs. Still no word on why the game was actually pulled.

https://www.siliconera.com/cooking-mama-mystery-update/



They ripped off their own games music? Wouldnt they have their own copies of those music in their files?
Devs get lazy and google it. Even ultimate had some of that when it turned out that the Mother 3 Spirit wasn't from Nintendo's archives but ripped from a Mother 3 fansite.

To add onto KirbyWorshipper2465 KirbyWorshipper2465 , heres a video going into it. Seems like its due to developer wanting to take more time but publisher putting it out anyway and then developers had it pulled due to that or something nutty.

Must suck being Office Create right now, having your only IP being devalued so badly by a bunch of incompetent developers and publishers

Well with all this crazy crap about this game, at least it gave us this.
