Iron Chef unveiled

Iron Chef unveiled

Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine (Wii) is inspired by the american show of the same name, produced by Fuji Television. The player takes the role of a master chef in a series of culinary and spicy challenges. Hundreds of dishes will be available for you to create this summer. For me, it already smells like old cheese.


Official PR :

Developed by Black Lantern Studios, the game is based on the highly rated Iron Chef America program, a spinoff of the worldwide hit Iron Chef, produced by Fuji Television. Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine features the voice and likeness of the show’s host, Mark Dacascos, and Destineer will announce the involvement of additional talent from the show shortly.

“If the early buzz surrounding the game is any indication, then fans of the show and Nintendo owners are as excited as we are to be developing Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine,” said Paul Rinde, CEO of Destineer. “With their innovative control dynamics, Wii and DS are the ideal system for the inaugural Iron Chef video game and believe the ultimate ‘secret ingredient’ to these games will be family fun.”

Adds Jean Sagendorph, Licensing Director at United Media: “Iron Chef America possesses all of the attributes for a successful video game: fast paced action, intense competition and a unique gamesmanship that is the hallmark of Kitchen Stadium. We are excited to partner with Destineer in a sure-fire recipe for success – Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine.”

Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine challenges players to take up the role a master chef in the midst of a battle for culinary supremacy. Recreating the blistering speed of the Food Network’s hit television show, Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine presents players with epic culinary battles centered on 15 theme ingredients and hundreds of dish variations. Featuring recipes chosen to look and sound delicious and be fun to make, gameplay revolves around 300 different mini-game tasks designed to highlight the skill and speed of the real Iron Chefs.

Features:

* King of Iron Chefs: Make your way through the gauntlet of master chefs to earn the tile of King of All Iron Chefs! Battle celebrity chefs in frenzied competitions for the delight of discriminating judges.
* Epic Culinary Battles: This is no lazy day in the kitchen! Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine challenges players to complete several dishes simultaneously, using the Wii Remote or DS Stylus as your cooking tools. Stir, chop, mince, fry, and more… just keep your eye on the clock!
* The Secret Ingredient is…: Featuring 15 theme ingredients and hundreds of dish variations, Supreme Cuisine challenges players to create three to six dishes per battle. The judges favor more courses but also prize skillful cooking, so player must weigh the challenges of taking on more dishes against the potential rewards.
* Step into Kitchen Stadium: Enter the world of Iron Chef, complete with an accurate recreation of Kitchen Stadium, world-famous chefs, and hundreds of mouth-watering food items!
* Cooking with Friends: On both the Wii and DS, players can challenge a friend to a cook-off. Or, two chefs can cook together for a true meeting of culinary masters!

Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine is scheduled for release in Summer 2008.

For some reason i just can't see myself playing a cooking simulation game. I'd rather just go out into the kitchen and bust out the real stuff instead, and be rewarded with a tasty meal instead of the approval of digital judges :P

Also the picture is horrible.

the wii party game genre is one party I wish the police would shut down.

No doubt it will be commiting suicide before long anyway.

I think you can make that argument about any simulator though. The point of these games is to get people interested in whatever they're simulating. Like thanks to Gran Turismo back in the 90's I became something of a gearhead.

Exactly! If you're going to have a cooking party you might as well have real food! Of course I've never actually thrown a cooking party, that usually involves renting out a place and they can charge up to $125 per person/per stove.

But I do like cooking for my friends at home. The last dinner I had with friends I cooked broiled lamb shanks and black bean soup with a little jalapeno for heat. yum :)

why would anyone sustitute this for the real thing?

If I had to play a cooking game it would have to be as Chef Gordan Ramsay because Kitchen Nightmares (BBC version) and Hell's Kitchen are both hilarious.

No some simulation is great, but this is just so...mundane. It's like the sims or some shit, i never understood why you'd want to spend hours on end doing the dishes and going to the bathroom digitally either. Everybody that has a wii has the possibility to cook for real right in the comfort of their own home. It's not like a flight simulator, or a driving sim (where you drive exclusive cars on track from all over the world, from your couch), is it?

I'm with sheps on this one, whats next? Wii chores: sock sorting and lawn mowing party fun for the whole family?

I'm with you there...instead of playing chef with the wii, just get some friends together, cook a nice dinner and have a great time away from the tv instead :)

Yeah but, not anyone can go out and race a super expensive car super fast...

Pretty much everyone has a kitchen....


These Wii games are really just pathetic... Their taking the whole "casual gamer" thing too far...

The best cooking show I watched when I was young, not too sure about how the game will turn out though.
