Biggest E3 News Evar: Giant Plush Baby Revealed

Recommended Videos

About a month ago, Majesco announced that the be-kerchiefed main character of their best selling Cooking Mama games would be getting another new avocation, other than gardening: babysitting.

Which kind of goes without saying, doesn’t it?  Otherwise how did she get to be Cooking Mama?

Anyway, the point of this is that E3 has finally yielded photos of the new peripheral for Babysitting Mama for the Wii: a plush baby to shove your Wiimote inside of. I mean, a baby to put on your Wiimote.  I mean – goddammit, Nintendo.  /facepalm

According to Joystiq:

Using a plush baby into which you have tucked a Wiimote — and also using the Nunchuk that is somehow hanging out of this plush baby or something — you play 40 minigames in the usual Cooking Mama style; representing tasks like feeding and changing a baby, or rocking it to sleep.

Also:

Majesco was sure to tell us that the design of the doll, and the design of the packaging, had yet to be finalized.

Presumably you will have to take the the rubber jacket off your wiimote if you want to use the Babysitting Mama plush.  I have no further comment.
