Virtual stoves can also be fun. This is the idea behind MasterChef: The Official Video Game, the adaptation of the popular television show to consoles and computers that hits stores today. This party game for up to two players is inevitably reminiscent of the acclaimed Overcooked and allows you to relive the show through different mini-games.
The game is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch in physical and digital formats, and on PC digital only (via Steam). As can be seen in the images and the trailer, the title developed by Drakhar Studio recreates both the set of the program and its kitchens.
"Players will compete for victory alongside other AI-controlled challengers on the show's set and in outdoor events in the square and on the beach," the game's official website states. Another interesting detail is that the gameplay is divided into three phases: the search for ingredients in the supermarket, the preparation of the dishes in the kitchen and the final serving.
In addition to this three-part structure, the game also includes a simple character editor and, perhaps most interesting to fans of the show, "real recipes from the show to practice on their home stoves and bring the game to life." real".
In addition to the developer Drakhar Studio from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, behind the official Masterchef video game are the Catalan publisher Selecta Play, the audiovisual production company Shine Iberia and RTVE.
