Mario Batali and Masaharu Morimoto will be in the upcoming video game Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine for Nintendo Wii and DS. Eater has the full press release from the video game developer Destineer with quotes from the soon-to-be-digitized star chefs:
"I’m delighted to be involved with Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine," said Chef Batali. "My video game counterpart is as passionate and competitive in the virtual Kitchen Stadium as I am in real life, and I think the participation of Chef Morimoto and I adds a great level of authenticity to the game.
Adds Chef Morimoto: "Having been an Iron Chef in both Japan and America, I am pleased to partake in another exciting frontier – video games! Hopefully Iron Chef: Supreme Cuisine can inspire a new generation of great chefs."
Judging from the video game's box design, we can look forward to Cat Cora and Alton Brown in the game as well.
