Time to stop cooking, its Gardening Mama time!
Posted by Anthony Dickens
505 announce a new game in the Mama series the non-cooking based Gardening Mama, scheduled for DS Spring next year.
Gardening Mama sees Mama heading into the great outdoors to turn an empty garden into a tranquil paradise. Green-fingered players use the touch screen to dig holes, plant seeds, mix fertiliser and ultimately grow a range of fruits, flowers and vegetables.
Just like Cooking Mama saw players engaging in different stages of a recipe, Gardening Mama breaks the plant growing process up into small bite-size chunks of game play. The simple mini-games can be played by wannabe gardeners of all ages, as they grow increasingly more colourful and rare flowers.
This probably won't be quite as popular as the Cooking Mama series, but it'll probably still appeal to fans. We're currently told the game will be released in the Spring of next year.
Meanwhile in the kitchen, Majesco have recently announced that Cooking Mama World Kitchen (Wii) will be released in North America on November 18th followed by a European release also in the Spring 2009.
