Grab a skillet, turn on the oven, and get ready to cook when Waku Waku Sweets hits the Nintendo Switch later this year.

Developed by Aksys Games, Waku Waku Sweets invites players to roll, mix, and bake their way to becoming a master pastry chef with more than 100 different recipes featuring tasty treats from around the world. Using the Joy-Con controllers, players can sharpen their skills using realistic motions that have been designed to mimic real-life recipes, like sifting, pouring, baking, and frosting.

In addition to featuring a variety of confectioneries, the game also features a multitude of different hairstyles and clothing options to make the player’s pastry chef entirely their own. Customization doesn’t stop there as players can design their own unique patisserie with furniture and more.

Players can move up the ranks at work by cooking for their co-workers, complete solo quests, challenge your neighbors, or share your sweets with the village.

Waku Waku Sweets is rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB and will release on the Nintendo Switch in Winter 2019. It will retail for $39.99 USD.
