Developed by Ghost Town Games and published by Team 17, Overcooked! All You Can Eat puts together the remaster of the first game as well as its sequel into one game. What makes this collection exciting to many fans is the fact that it was the launch title for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series S/X—the latest generation of consoles.
When it was released, the intense and fast-paced cooking simulator was only available on the two aforementioned platforms. In other words, its playerbase was definitely limited, especially since gamers have been having an incredibly difficult time trying to get their hands on the PlayStation 5 due to scalpers.
Fortunately, Ghost Town Games has announced that it will be introducing Overcooked! All You Can Eat to other platforms, making it more accessible to interested players who don’t have a PS5 or an Xbox X/S yet. The announcement comes with a playful trailer featuring none other than the Onion King, who is acting out the role of a news reporter. He then reveals the news that on March 23, 2021, the game in question will be launched on the Nintendo Switch, Steam, PS4, and Xbox One.

This means that by next month, more players will be able to experience the new and improved version of Overcooked, one of the best games out there in terms of multitasking.
Even though Overcooked! All You Can Eat will be the same across the different platforms, playing on PlayStation consoles actually offers players with a few benefits. It may not be much, but the systems’ controllers have a light bar which can be used to highlight the different players’ colors. This can be incredibly useful to ensure that players don’t get confused as to which character they are amidst the hustle and bustle of the busy kitchen.
Not only that, but using the DualSense controller actually has its own perks, too. For instance, this controller utilizes haptic feedback that can alert busy players when the food they’re cooking is on fire, or when recipes are timing out, among other things.
Long-time Overcooked fans know just how hectic and chaotic each level can get, and things can get out of hand really fast. So, having simple perks such as this can be a great help to keep the kitchen—and what’s happening in it—in check.
For Nintendo Switch users who are curious to see what all the hubbub around Overcooked is, Overcooked 2 is actually free on the Switch eShop for a limited time. The limited time Game Trials for the sequel will end on February 16, 2021. So, don’t hesitate to quickly grab this opportunity before time runs out!
Seeing as we’re still in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, multiplayer games such as Overcooked will be perfect games to play with either friends or family as we stay in the safety of our own homes. As such, it’s great that Ghost Town Games and Team 17 will be making Overcooked! All You Can Eat available to more gamers than ever before.
