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.

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.”

That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (1 Hour ago)
OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (2 Hours ago)
DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (2 Hours ago)
@Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (2 Hours ago)
I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (2 Hours ago)
some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (2 Hours ago)
Surely you can spot the differences. (2 Hours ago)
