New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games coming soon as more intriguing facts are found in the NES Classic
While the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U saw a new range of games launch this week – while a new intriguing fact was found out about the Nintendo NES Classic Mini – it appears that next month will be a busy one.
Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop has now been confirmed for retail box release on May 16 in North America, with a digital release set for May 18 on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
In partnership with Japanese development studio Office Create, gamers will create a myriad of sweet treats and dazzling desserts, with over 60 different recipes to create, spread throughout 160 different mini-games.
“Players use the stylus to slice, stir, bake and decorate their creations – you can even use the microphone to blow and cool your delicacies!
“Create a wide assortment of delicious looking sweets and puddings, and serve customers in the shop to keep them happy.
“The more sweets you create and complete, the more your shop expands. You may even trigger a special event! Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop also features a competitive multiplayer mode for two to four players – challenge your friends and see who can make the tastiest treats.
“And just like always, don’t worry if you make a mistake – Mama will fix it for you.”

The Japanese games giant seems to specialise in hiding little hints in all their latest products, the latest being spotted in the Nintendo NES Classic Mini Edition of The Legend of Zelda.
29 years since its original launch, a typo found in the game was finally sorted out for the launch of the Nintendo NES Classic version.
Clyde Mandelin, author of the book Legends of Localization Book 1: The Legend of Zelda, confirmed the change earlier this week.
It stems from an extra "N" found in a message, with the misspelled “Penninsula” apparently being left in multiple virtual console releases on Wii, 3DS, and Wii U.
“The infamous hint man in Level 1 used to talk about an “eastmost penninsula” in the English translation. It took almost 30 years and two script revisions, but the typo is finally fixed,” Mandelin wrote on his legendsoflocalization website, accompanied by a new comparison shot of the different Zelda versions.
“Of course, in the Japanese version his hint isn’t even about peninsulas – it’s instead about how you need money to shoot arrows.
“This is the only text change that I’ve found so far. The rest of the script appears to be from the 2003 revision, which means there are still some genuine translation issues.”
