Wii owners and would-be chefs have a new option in the cooking-game genre, as Zoo Games unveiled Order Up! today as a Nintendo Wii exclusive.
Order Up! is a full-featured cooking and restaurant management game that goes beyond the basic slice and dice gameplay. Order Up! gives players the ability to not only prepare and cook a meal, but to do so while juggling other orders, handing off tasks to assistant chefs, working inside restaurants you can improve and serving the food to customers who have distinct personalities and tastes in food.
Oh, and you’ll be doing it all via the Wii Remote.
As a promising new chef on the island of Port Abello, players get to build their own culinary legacy and restaurant empire from the ground up. Rising from humble beginnings as a grill cook in a fast food restaurant, the player comes to grips with dozens of different ingredients and many different cuisines, from classic American Diner food to Mexican and Italian dishes.
During this journey, players will deal with the headaches and hazards of running a working restaurant kitchen, picky patrons, quirky assistant chefs, food critics and health inspectors.
Order Up! is expected to release July 22 for $39.99.
