Master More Than 30 Delicious Food Network Recipes in Your
Living Room

Hungry? Wish you knew how to whip up the perfect T-bone steak,
or maybe just a quick pasta with meat balls? Good news. Leading video games
developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., announced today that
Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked is now available at retail stores throughout
North America for Wii™. Developed in partnership with Food Network, the first
cable network dedicated to the power and joy of food, players can now learn the
real, practical skills needed to cook more than 30 mouth-watering Food
Network-worthy recipes.

Using the motion-sensing Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™, players
master an array of culinary techniques as they progress through recipes
developed by Food Network chefs themselves. Designed to take the cooking
experience from practice to practical, the game gives players the cooking
“chops” they need to create each dish in their real kitchen with ease. Even the
most kitchen-phobic of players can master staples such as “Overly Easy Bacon and
Eggs” or a “Classic Cheeseburger” and work their way to a tasty “Pan-seared
T-Bone Steak with Red Wine Reduction” or “Lasagna Toscana” – perfect for
impressing dinner guests, or just the chef.

In addition to cooking recipes straight from the Food Network
kitchens, players will also encounter Food Network personalities, Vice President
of Marketing and The Next Food Network Star judge, Susie Fogelson, and Food
Network Kitchens chef Mory Thomas, to coach and judge their culinary efforts
along the way.

For those looking for company in the kitchen, or a little
friendly competition, Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked lets up to four players
cook side-by-side in cooperative Hot Potato multiplayer mode, or face-off in a
two-player split screen competitive mode.

Developed by Red Fly Studio, Food Network: Cook or Be Cooked
is rated “E” for everyone by the ESRB and carries an MSRP of $39.99. For more
