Publisher Majesco has announced that it has reached U.S. sales of 1.6 million units of its now flagship Cooking Mama franchise since the original DS title launched in September of 2006, a title that has now become a million seller. Since the original release, Majesco has followed up with Cooking Mama: Cook Off in April of 2007, and Cooking Mama 2: Dinner With Friends in November of last year. No specific U.S. sales numbers were announced for the latter two titles. In a recent Gamasutra interview, Taito's U.S. representative Keiji Fujita said the original Cooking Mama had also reached sales of 500,000 in Europe, and was well on its way to becoming a million seller in Japan as well. The publisher recently announced that its Q4 and fiscal 2007 results, showing holiday sales of $11.9 million and losses down slightly to $1.5 million, were led, as usual, by the top selling franchise. Said Majesco CEO Jesse Sutton, "The success of Cooking Mama has been akin to catching lightning in a bottle. A unique concept, iconic main character and gameplay execution that fully utilizes the stylus and Wii Remote have proved to be a winning combination. We appreciate the continued support from all of Mama's fans and look forward to launching the fourth title in the franchise later this year."
