Set for release in April 2009, this Cooking Mama spin-off has found a brand new way to emasculate male gamers. I played the original Cooking Mama (Don’t you judge me!) on DS and actually rather enjoyed it (Stop judging me!).
According to the press release â€œCooking Mama’s stepped out of her kitchen and into the backyard for some gardening fun with Mother Nature! Join Mama from the award-winning, multi-million selling Cooking Mama franchise as she grows, harvests and enjoys a huge variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers in the first ever gardening game.â€
Seems like Majesco have never heard of Viva Pinata.
Can you contain YOUR excitement? I know I can’t.
Full list of features after the jump!
â€¢ Everyone’s favourite Mama from the best-selling Cooking Mama series stars in the brand’s first offshoot and the first ever gardening game on Nintendo DS
â€¢ Gameplay in Gardening Mama is very similar to Cooking Mama gameplay-use the stylus as your master garden tool to nurture 35 different flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. Plant, water, fertilize, prune, eliminate pests and then harvest what you’ve grown!
â€¢ Growing live products means that you may experience unexpected results based on your careâ€”flowers can bloom different colours, fruit trees can grow different fruits, etc.
â€¢ Multiple modes of play include:
â€¢ Let’s Get Growing!â€”Grow a variety of flowers, fruits and vegetables in your various gardens. Manage your gardens as they seed, bloom, bear fruit and mature.
â€¢ Decorate the Garden!â€”Decorate your flower garden with various fences, pots, flowers and more by earning bonuses to unlock new decorations.
