Overcooked! All You Can Eat, the manic multiplayer chef sim from Team 17, is soon to receive a huge update to celebrate World Food Day. Adding a whole host of tasty new features and characters, the update will be coming to Switch in but a few short days on October 12th.

In a recent news post from the studio, Team 17 shared everything that we can expect to find in the update, with ingredients ranging from a pinch of new biomes, a twist of additional obstacles and a healthy dose of new accessibility features to finish it off - buon appetito.

On top of this, the update will add three new chefs - Fox (adorable), Globe (terrifying) and a new Goldfish skin - and two new recipes for curry and bobotie. All of this will have to be navigated around a delivery driver mechanic, whose pesky bag will take up valuable worktop space - as if the game wasn't hectic enough already!
