In a press release issued today by Majesco, the company states that the Cooking Mama Franchise has now sold 1.6 million copies in the United States. With over 1 million copies sold, the majority of cash has been brought in by the original DS game. But naturally Cooking Mama: Cook Off for the Wii, and Cooking Mama 2: Dinner With Friends for Nintendo DS did their part as well.
Majesco CEO Jesse Sutton had this to say about the success of the franchise: “The success of Cooking Mama has been akin to catching lightning in a bottle. A unique concept, iconic main character and gameplay execution that fully utilizes the stylus and Wii Remote have proved to be a winning combination. We appreciate the continued support from all of mama’s fans and look forward to launching the fourth title in the franchise later this year.”
There’s also another Cooking Mama game in the works right now. No details have been released yet the company is promising to cook up some info shortly.
