Domestic Goddess Cooking Mama is turning into a little bit of a mini Martha Stewart and expanding her emipire beyond the kitchen to the world of babysitting, with 505 Games’ Cooking Mama World: Babysitting Mama for the Wii. The game, which is due for release on November 12, is the first videogame to come bundled with a life-sized baby doll peripheral designed exclusively by Cooking Mama Limited. All you need to do to bring the doll to life is place the Wii Remote in a pouch in its back. During the game, players must play along with Mama and follow her instructions so that you can carry out all your babysitting duties correctly. These including feeding your baby, playing with toy blocks, changing nappies and helping baby to take its first steps. All the while, the onscreen baby meter will display your baby’s mood and show how well you’re looking after it. If it’s giggling and smiling, then you’re doing great, but if it’s crying… not so much!
The game features over 50 different challenges which can also be tackled in multiplayer mode, allowing two* babysitters to go head-to-head to see who’s the best babysitter of all!
No word as yet as to how much the game and doll package will cost when it’s released on November 12.
