Shokugeki no Soma – Mobile game based on popular manga announced

The game was actually revealed a week back, but it took developer Bandai Namco a pretty long time to release the first teaser trailer. The full name of the game is roughly translated as “Shokugeki no Soma: The Best Menu”, and it will be released in Japan on both iOS and Android devices later this year. A pre-register event is now ongoing, with a Super Rare version of Soma Yukihira up for grabs.

As seen in the teaser trailer above, gameplay is pretty simple. It involves conjuring awesome dishes, but rather than doing real chopping and cooking, players will have to follow directions and make use of the touch screen to perform each step. Pretty much like Dance Dance Revolution for fingers. It wasn’t mentioned how using different characters will affect the gameplay, though.
