Yesterday we wrote about Cooking Mama on Nintendo Switch and the mystery of why it was downloaded to Nintendo eShop before it was quickly removed, before a bunch of cryptocurrency lingo was found in the press release original games.
Overnight, Screen Rant I got to talk to one of the game developers and found out why it was removed from Nintendo eShop and the game carts stopped being produced. The game does not contain any cryptocurrency functionality, it was just something that the head of Planet Entertainment (the developer) used to boost the game’s hype. The game was optimized because the IP holder of Cooking mama (Office Create) wanted the game to continue to be tweaked, with the developer (Planet Entertainment) releasing it without permission.
Subsequently, Office Create used its contacts at Nintendo to fire the game and stop the production of cartridges. Starting from there, it is unlikely that we will ever see this game again in any form. It’s also a little weird because the game seems to work well without glitches (although it definitely lacks a few modes).
At one point, the Japanese head of customer creation came to oversee the development. An argument started and customers were asked to go home if they were not “builders.” Once they found out that Planet Entertainment released the game, they used their Nintendo contacts to remove it from the online store and stop producing cartridges.
Overall, everyone at 1p loves mom’s cooking franchise and has done their best to make the best product considering the interference of senior officials. I think the game is far from perfect, but would have gone well without the publishers stumbling so constantly … ” said a member of ScreenRant development
Honestly, it’s still a bit of a mystery because the game definitely seemed in a state of sale, and the rights holder knew that the game was coming out in March, so it’s hard not to believe that something else is going on. here.
