It’s a lengthy, cumbersome name, but Everyday Today’s Menu For Emiya Family from Grid Software and Aniplex will be landing on the Nintendo Switch in May.
The game is a waifu-filled cooking sim based on the anime and manga of the same name, Today’s Menu for the Emiya Family, which is actually a spin-off of the Fate/Stay series where instead of doing battle and trying to alter the shape of history, Emiya finds himself at home, cooking and preparing traditional Japanese cuisine.
The game contains a wide mixture of different recipes to master, each with their own section of mini-games that make unique use of the Switch’s capabilities. You can get an idea of what the gameplay is like with the trailer below, courtesy of Dante’s Nintendo Switch World.
Preparing the meals isn’t just about completing a single mini-game, though. As you can see in the trailer, you’ll need to prepare each part of the course and then combine it. You’re rated and ranked on how well you complete each task.
Along the way you’ll encounter different characters with different desired dishes in the gastronomic arts, and attempt to appease their palate with your adept culinary art techniques.
And since the game is made by the fine folks in Japan, and it’s themed around Fate/Stay, it means there are plenty of waifus present throughout the game to help make the experience that much more enjoyable, something you won’t get from Western-made games.
Everyday Today’s Menu For The Emiya Family isn’t due to drop for the Switch until this May, but unfortunately it’s only releasing in Japan for now. I imagine if it gains enough traction on social media or enough foreign import sales they might consider a Western release.
For now, you can keep an eye out for it on the Nintendo of Japan eShop come May.
