Earlier today, a developer from the Cooking Mama: Cookstar team said that the game disappeared from the Switch eShop due to a legal dispute between the IP holder and Planet Entertainment, the publisher. Planet Entertainment is singing a different story on Twitter.
We know that Cookstar fans are anxiously awaiting for the game to appear in the eShop. As everybody is aware, the whole world is upside down with delays right now. At Planet Entertainment, we are as anxious as you for the digital download to be available!
The message above seems to point to the impact of the coronavirus having something to do with the game's digital release. This obviously flies in the face of what a dev team member said. Now we don't know what to believe.
On a personal note, I will say that I hope Planet Entertainment is telling the truth. If they're using the coronavirus as a cover story for the game's legal issues, that's absolutely disgusting. I sincerely hope that's not the case.
