Office Create Corp.

We would like to appreciate a fans and business for their support over a years for a Cooking Mama franchise. As many of we know, Planet Entertainment LLC (Headquarters: Connecticut, USA; “Planet”) recently expelled “Cooking Mama: Cookstar” for sale in a U.S., Europe and Australia. This was an unapproved recover in crack of Planet’s agreement with Office Create.

In Aug 2018, Office Create protected Planet to rise a Cooking Mama: Cookstar diversion for Nintendo Switch™. Unfortunately, a peculiarity of a diversion builds unsuccessful to accommodate a standards that a business design and deserve. Office Create deserted a far-reaching operation of deficiencies inspiring a altogether feel, peculiarity and calm of a game. Yet, notwithstanding being contractually thankful to scold a identified deficiencies and resubmit a corrected diversion for Office Create’s approval, Planet proceeded to recover Cooking Mama: Cookstar but addressing all of a rejections and but Office Create’s approval.

We have also schooled that Planet and/or a European distributor has been compelling an arriving European recover of a PS4™ chronicle of Cooking Mama: Cookstar. Office Create has not protected Planet (or any other entity) to emanate any Cooking Mama games for PS4™. Office Create itself has not been concerned in a growth of any PS4™ Cooking Mama game.

On Mar 30, 2020 Office Create told Planet of a evident stop of a permit due to Planet’s conscious element crack of a permit contract. Despite such notice, Planet continues to publicize and sell a unapproved chronicle of Cooking Mama: Cookstar on a website in bullheaded defilement of Office Create’s rights. To date, Planet has not reliable a standing of a unapproved PS4™ version.

Office Create is evaluating all authorised movement opposite Planet to strengthen a customers, egghead skill rights and a Cooking Mama series. In a meantime, we appreciate a business and constant Cooking Mama fans for their continued support and unequivocally bewail any difficulty and beating that has been caused by Planet’s conduct.

So according to Office Create, anyone in possession of Cooking Mama: Cookstar technically has an unapproved duplicate of a game. This would also explain because Planet Entertainment resorted to offered copies directly from a Cookstar website.
