We didn't think Majesco would find any reason not
to pick this up, but we're glad to see an official announcement. The company will publish Cooking Mama Ltd.'s latest, Gardening Mama
, in North America, with a scheduled spring 2009 release.
According to the press release, Gardening Mama
features not only planting and maintaining crops, but also segments in which players use those crops after harvesting -- including examples like making strawberry jam and carving pumpkins. Gardening Mama
also features four-player multiplayer gardening, and the ability to share the products of your labor with other players online.
