Cooking Mama is back for another round of garden-tending action in Gardening Mama 2: Forest Friends, a newly-announced series entry coming to the Nintendo 3DS this spring from publisher Majesco.
Following up on 2009's Gardening Mama for the DS, Forest Friends introduces 50 new horticulture-themed challenges. In addition to fulfilling in-game requests, players can deliver harvested fruits and veggies to forest shops in order to earn new items, decorations, and seeds. Gardening Mama 2 also features SpotPass functionality, rewarding players with unlockable garden backgrounds for meeting up with fellow gardening fanatics.
Majesco notes that the Cooking Mama series has sold over 13 million units worldwide since its launch in 2006. Gardening Mama 2 is due to hit the Nintendo 3DS in April.
