Hell's Kitchen: The Video Game Announced

Ubisoft announces Hell's Kitchen: The Video Game, based on the reality television show starring notorious British chef Gordon Ramsay. The game is slated for release this September offering the chance to be berated by Chef Ramsay just like a real contestant on the show (This celery is RAW! You could KILL somebody!), and the chance to unlock genuine recipes (It's a cookbook!). Word is:

SAN FRANCISCO – July 10, 2008 – Today Ubisoft announced that it will publish Hell's Kitchen(TM): The Video Game, for Wii(TM), Nintendo DS(TM), PC and Mac®. Developed by Ludia, Hell's Kitchen: The Video Game is based on the U.S. hit FOX television program from Granada America featuring world-renowned Chef Gordon Ramsay. The game will allow players to experience the show's high-pressure kitchen and dining room challenges as a faithfully rendered 3D Chef Ramsay watches their every move.

"I had a great time doing the voice for my own animation,” said Gordon Ramsay. "Being in a video game is a new experience for me and I'm very pleased with the results.”

After executing the three phases of an order – preparation, cooking and service – Chef Gordon Ramsay will score each meal. As they progress through the game, players will be rewarded with access to recipes from Chef Ramsay's own repertoire.

"Hell's Kitchen has everything a great video game needs: pressure, excitement and intense competition,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft North America. "We are very excited to be bringing the intensity of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and the Hell's Kitchen experience to the virtual world this fall.”

Hell's Kitchen: The Video Game will be released worldwide September 2008.

Key Features:

• Chef Ramsay watches players' every move and judges them as they progress by yelling at them, praising them or shutting down the kitchen if their skills don't meet his expectations.

• As players progress, they'll gain access to authentic Gordon Ramsay recipes, including many that are offered exclusively to game owners.

• In Career Mode, players can earn stars to build their way up from a Single-Star restaurant to a prestigious Five-Star establishment. As the player advances through the ranks, their star rating advances and the recipes become more varied and intricate.

• In Arcade Mode, the pressure builds as customers become increasingly demanding. Players will be challenged to keep up with the pressure before time is up, or Chef Ramsay loses patience and closes the kitchen.

The US series was a bunch of no-hoping New Yorkers hoping to make a fast buck with Ramsay's appearance and his overhaul of their flea-bitten restaurant, whereas the real British show has Ramsay actually helping and encouraging the failing enterprise through product innovation and light restyling.

Different show -- you're thinking of Kitchen Nightmares.
