If you’re a fan of the original Overcooked, you’ll no doubt be aware the sequel to the fast and frantic multiplayer game about food preparation arrives next week on the Nintendo Switch.

Rewinding to last week when Team 17 shared a new trailer of Overcooked 2 revealing five chefs for players who pre-ordered the game, Nintendo has now issued a reminder there'll be an additional chef exclusive to the Switch version of the game.

If you pre-purchase prior to the release of the Switch version, not only will you get five exclusive chefs, but you’ll also get a Platypus Chef. You can spot the Aussie animal at the very end of the trailer below:

Overcooked 2 includes local and online multiplayer, a new ‘throwing’ mechanic, new level mechanics, dynamic level design, an interactive world map, new kitchens, recipes, and chefs. For more information about the game, make sure you check out our recent hands-on preview.

The title launches on Nintendo Switch on 7th August for £19.99 / €24.99 / $29.99 with a boxed retail version also on the way. Pre-orders are available right now.
