Cooking Mama: Cookstar publisher in hot water for “unauthorised release”

UPDATE 10pm: Planet Entertainment has responded to accusations that it breached its contract by publishing Cooking Mama: Cookstar, in a lengthy statement which, if nothing else, is worth relaying for its surprise use of the words “unicorn food”.

“Planet Entertainment wants to explain the mystery surrounding the Nintendo Switch game to all Cooking Mama Cookstar fans,” the publisher wrote in a statement posted to Twitter.
