FuRyu is developing the "taste personal experience cooking battle adventure" game. The company plans to release the game this winter. The game will feature Sōma Yukihira and other familiar students at Tōtsuki Culinary Academy as they participate in cooking battles.

The original manga's story follows Sōma, who works with his dad at his family's restaurant. His dad is a culinary master, and he often hosts cooking battles with his father. His father then enrolls him in an elite culinary school that is very difficult to enter, and the graduation rate is only about 10 percent.

Yūto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki launched the manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in November 2012, and Shueisha will publish the 13th compiled volume on June 4. Yuki Mirosaki, a cosplay chef and model, also contributes to the manga, and each volume of the manga features recipes.

North American publisher Viz Media is releasing the manga in North America. The company initially decided not to add the manga to its digital Weekly Shonen Jump anthology because the series is "a little racy," but then it began publishing the series in the anthology last November.

J.C. Staff's television anime adaptation of the manga premiered in April. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs and Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video.
