In its latest financial results release, Majesco
reported satisfying sales for its Cooking Mama
franchise. It didn't provide specifics, but CEO Jesse Sutton said that Cooking Mama 3
"performed well," Gardening Mama
was "very successful" and Cooking Mama
in general was "the most successful third party franchise on the DS" and "an evergreen brand." So, naturally, Majesco is going to retire the series on a high note.
Oh, did we say "retire the series on a high note?" We meant "release two more games this year." Sutton said that following the success of the gardening-based spinoff, Majesco is working on two "additional extensions for 2010," as well as looking to "new media channels" for further extensions of the brand.
