Fantasy cooking RPG Battle Chef Brigade has been announced for Nintendo Switch. Indie developer Trinket Studios has also released a brand new trailer for the bizarre, cooking tournament-based game.
Battle Chef Brigade was announced for the Switch alongside several other major indie games, including indigenous action adventure title, Mulaka.
Battle Chef Brigade Announced for Nintendo Switch
Trinket Studios confirms that Battle Chef Brigade will be released in holiday 2017 on Nintendo Switch, along with its previously confirmed PC, Mac, Linux releases. There’s currently no word on whether the game will have any Switch-specific features and what these may be.
Battle Chef Brigade sees players take part in a fantasy cooking competition. The game stars four playable chefs (including female characters Mina and Kirin), who must battle various fantasy creatures, literally combo-ing them to pieces in order to get ingredients for their dishes.
These dishes are then prepared as part of an Iron Chef-like gameshow in which players are tasked with putting together the tastiest of meals with their freshly prepped ingredients. Nerves will be tested as these rounds are timed and see players take part in match three puzzles.
Additionally, each of the playable chefs each will have their own (“short”) story campaigns which “delves into each character’s personality and cooking. Trinket Studios also promises daily challenges and leaderboards “where Battle Chefs can boast about their day’s best culinary creations.”
On paper, Battle Chef Brigade is a very strange mix of genres, but Trinket Studios could somehow make it work. Most players of fantasy RPGs are well familiar with crafting mechanics and bopping creatures on the nose for resources to make potions and outfits, so why is a cooking game based on that any different?
The game was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter in 2014 and clearly, many people are intrigued by the seemingly odd premise, but Battle Chef Brigade will soon be wining over everyone else too.
Battle Chef Brigade will be released on Windows PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch in 2017. A PS4 release is also planned.
