Following Office Create’s official statement about Cooking Mama: Cookstar, Planet Entertainment has released a response via the official Cooking Mama: Cookstar Twitter account. We’ve transcribed the response, errors and all, below: 

Planet Entertainment wants to explain the mystery surrounding the Nintendo Switch game to all Cooking Mama Cookstar fans.

Office Create, the rights holder to Cooking Mama, approved a detailed game design in 2019. 1st Playable the game developer and Planet followed the exact approved design. That design is the exact game on Nintendo Switch which also includes many additional Office Create suggestions which add gameplay value. 

Unfortunately, creative differences arose as Cooking Mama Cookstar was near completion that were outside the scope of our agreement and the game design approved by Office Create. 

By contact, Planet is fully within its rights to publish Cooking Mama Cookstar. There is no active litigation or ruling that prevents Planet from publishing the game. 

Cooking Mama fans have been very enthusiastic about Cooking Mama Cookstar, including the many new features including Vegetarian and, Unicorn food, Potluck Party plus more.

We appreciate the overwhelming response and support from Cooking Mama Cookstar fans.

Office Create has our total respect. We thank them for their wisdom and wish them well. 

The Twitter account was quiet during the game’s release last month, but has since started tweeting more by responding to fans and squashing a bizarre cryptocurrency mining rumor. Notably, a comparison video of Cooking Mama: Cookstar in relation to Cooking Mama: Cook Off was tweeted yesterday. 

 

 
This is just another dish in the ongoing saga of Cooking Mama: Cookstar’s release and the drama surrounding it. We’ll continue to report on any further updates, so stay tuned.
