Cooking Guide with international dishes and three new DS Lite colours are coming to Europe next month.

Nintendo’s Cooking Navi interactive talking cookbook series has been very successful in Japan where three different versions have been released. The game series features synthesized voices for instruction, voice control, terminology and utensil guides, tutorials, and everything you would need to follow along while cooking. Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What To Eat? was announced for Europe in release lists earlier this season and will feature 250 international dishes rather than the 200 Asian dishes included in Cooking Navi.

Cooking Guide: Can’t Decide What To Eat? will be available across Europe starting the 20th of June.

In the same announcement, three new DS Lite colours have been confirmed for Europe on the 13th of June, a week before Cooking Guide. These will be Red, Turquoise, and Green, with Green as a European first. The retail price will be the same as the existing colours at £99.
