Nintendo DS Hell's Kitchen The Game
Video Game based on Hell's Kitchen Features Virtual Celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay

Ubisoft will release Hell's Kitchen™: The Game on Nintendo DS™, PC and Mac in September and on Wii™ in November 2008.

Developed by Ludia, Hell's Kitchen: The Game is based on the hit television program 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 Christian Salomon, vice president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft. "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."

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

Hell's Kitchen: The Game will be available on Nintendo DS™, PC and Mac in September and Nintendo Wii™ in December from all major gaming retailers.
