COOKING MAMA 3 LAUNCHES AT HAMLEYS

Milton Keynes, 12th November– 505 Games have announced that a launch event for upcoming DS title Cooking Mama 3 will take place at Hamleys. On Saturday 14th November, the day after the UK release date, visitors to the famous Regent Street shop will be greeted by Mama herself and a few helpful hands, who will allow members of the public to try the game for themselves.

From 11am, Mama herself will be making an official visit to oversee the event, where gamers will have the chance to sample the game first hand on any one of a number of DS consoles available on the day at the GAME concession within the main Hamleys store. Players will also be treated to a special free gift from Mama after trying the game to take home on the day.

“Hamelys is a dream location for our consumer launch event and we’re very happy to be associated with such a world famous store,” commented Victoria Martin, Global Brand Manager for 505 Games.

After a blossoming outdoor spell in the hugely successful Gardening Mama, everyone’s favourite culinary queen is back in the kitchen with a whole new cooking adventure. As well as boasting over 80 recipes, 200 mini-games, four-player multiplayer (using single cart Nintendo DS Download play) and classic Mama game play, Cooking Mama 3 now offers three totally new game modes in Let’s Shop!, Let’s Match! and Cooking Contest.

Cooking Mama 3 will be released on 13th November across Europe exclusively on Nintendo DS.
