Planet Entertainment says Cooking Mama: Cookstar isn't on the Switch eShop yet because "the whole world is upside-down with delays"

The mystery isn't over yet

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.

This statement by the publisher just makes me believe other accounts of the situation even more.

If you're the publisher of the game, and your only comment about the game showing up on the e-shop fully released, then quickly removed, is 3 unrelated sentences strung together to try to imply what the delay is without making a statement either way (without ever addressing the fact the game was already on the e-shop), then chances are you're trying to cover up something shady.

And even worse, if that is the case, it means they're taking a global disaster affecting the entire world and trying to use it as an excuse to cover up for their own inadequacy. That would be absolutely disgusting.

Why would only the eShop version have been hit with a delay and not the physical version?

It's because they found the Cooking Mama Hot Coffee mode the developers acidentally left in

The Cooking Mama Drama has unironically gave me more entertainment these last few days than I would have by actually playing it.
