Iron Chef video game coming to the Nintendo Wii and DS

Video games with true interaction make the Wii even more appealing.

Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine lets players square off in Kitchen Stadium and battle through a series of fast-paced and intense culinary challenges. Each victory advances players closer to a final showdown that will determine who will reign supreme as the next Iron Chef America.

I hope the bonus rounds let you battle it out with the real Iron Chefs. Give me Hiroyuki Sakai and Rokusaburo Michiba any day over these Iron Chef America guys. And don't forget floor reporter Shinichiro Ohta shouting out "Fukui-san!" every few minutes.

I've written in the past about why the Wii is the ideal platform for video games that have more interaction than those console games that typically only require you to work out your thumbs.

And lest you think that I am all about Wii violence, I like the idea of cooking that lets all us Food Network junkies live out the chef fantasy without having to do any real work.

As a side note I ate at Iron Chef Chen Kenichi's restaurant in Akasaka about five years ago and the food was unrecognizable (despite claiming to be Chinese), but just think of all the fun gameplay that entails.
