Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic Gets Cooking On the 3DS eShop in North America

Nearly two years after its retail release

Occasionally Nintendo doesn't include all details in its weekly download updates for each region, and this week there's an extra treat awaiting North America gamers. Nearly two years after its retail release, Cooking Mama 4: Kitchen Magic is available on the 3DS eShop in North America; it's priced at $19.99.

A series that came to prominence on the DS family of systems, in particular, and serves up various touch-based mini-games to prepare food. The absence of the 3DS entry on the eShop has been slightly puzzling as a demo was available worldwide when it launched in 2011, yet it seemed to fall off the radar when Nintendo began selling retail games on the eShop in August 2012. The series will be continuing on the 3DS, too, with Cooking Mama 5 in development for a Winter release in Japan.

Unfortunately this title is only on the North American eShop, and not the European equivalent at the time of writing. Do any of you plan to pick this up at its budget price?
