Video game fans will soon be able to garden in the virtual world. Gardening Mama, a new Nintendo DS™
gardening simulation game, was announced last week by Majesco Entertainment
Company, a provider of video games for the
mass market. Developed by Cooking Mama Limited, the team that created the
Cooking Mama franchise that has sold 2.5 million units
domestically, Gardening Mama brings back the beloved matron to
cultivate a cornucopia of fruits, flowers and vegetables in her
backyard.

Advertisment

Gardening Mama transforms the DS stylus into a universal gardening
tool that players will use to plant, nurture and harvest flowers,
fruits and vegetables. Gamers can manage their garden through the
seeding, blooming and maturation phases, and then produce items from
the plants they've grown (i.e. grow strawberries to make jam or raise
pumpkins and then carve a jack-'o-lantern). A robust multiplayer mode
lets up to four friends compete to grow the biggest harvest and
Treasure Box mode lets players share items they've grown with online
friends. Gamers can also decorate various gardens while creating goods
like pergolas and hanging baskets. In addition, players can change
Mama's outfit to their liking while customizing the screen design to
their preference.

Gardening Mama for DS is expected to release in Spring 2009.
