Warning: puns follow.
I’ve been drooling after Battle Chef Brigade since getting a taste at PAX West in 2015. The lead chefs at Trinket studios: Tom Eastman, Eric Huang, and Ben Perez, learned to cook at Disney Interactive’s Wideload Games before forming their own kitchen, so you know they’ve got skillet making delicious games.
Since tasting the demo, I’ve been watching from afar as the Trinket Studios team have labored over their dish. Only the best ingredients have been used, including hand-crafted artisanal animations, meaty brawler mechanics, a dash of RPG progression, and topped with a delightful match-three crumble.
The final dish invites the patron to imagine themselves a budding chef, hunting their own food and using collected ingredients to prepare a meal for judges, in the manner of Iron Chef.
I don’t know if you’ll see a review from me. It’s likely I’ll be playing this souperb game for flours on end, unable to wok away.
With pop-up locations on both console and PC, you doughn’t have any reason to walk pasta this one. Battle Chef Brigade is fresh from the oven and waiting for you at the Nintendo Switch store, or on Steam, for $19.99.
