Ever since We Write Things launched, Overcooked has been a game we’ve talked about at great length. Beloved by everyone here at the site, Overcooked is a hectic, yet hilariously fun co-op cooking game. Developed and released last year from the duo of Ghost Town Games and Team17, Overcooked remains one of my favorite games from 2016.
As the title has received new DLC and content for gamers to enjoy, new platforms have emerged for it. Today, Team17 is announcing Overcooked: Special Edition. This version of the game will be coming to Nintendo Switch this coming Thursday, July 27.
The special edition will include the base game in addition to its recent DLC. Add-on content includes The Lost Morsel and Festive Seasoning DLCs. In total, there will be 44 campaign levels for gamers to conquer. Nine additional levels are available for head-to-head matches with either two or four players. Generally speaking, up to four players can play together locally.
There are 22 different chefs gamers can play as, and they range from a human, to racoon, to dinosaur. Each level is a unique kitchen that changes to provide new wrinkles in its gameplay. Players must adapt and learn to work together as a team. Whether you’re making soup, burgers or pizza, Overcooked is a great time with friends.
Earlier this year, Overcooked received several BAFTA awards in the form of Best Family Game and Best British Game. These are well-deserved honors for a game that is so much fun.
Those who are looking to pick-up Overcooked: Special Edition on Switch can do so this Thursday, July 27. The game will be available for $19.99. I’ll say it now so it’s out there. Here’s hoping a sequel to Overcooked will arrive in the months or years ahead. Stick around here at We Write Things for more on Overcooked.
