The November issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is revealing on Saturday that FuRyu's upcoming Shokugeki no Sōma: Yūjō to Kizuna no Hitosara (Shokugeki no Sōma: The Dish of Friendship and Bonds) Nintendo 3DS game will ship on December 17.
The magazine also reveals that the game will have a completely original story. In the game, the students of Tōtsuki Culinary Academy gather on a lone island in Europe for a cooking battle tournament.
The cast from the anime will reprise their roles in the game.
The game's official website previously streamed a teaser for the game in May.
FuRyu is developing the "taste personal experience cooking battle adventure" game. 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. 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.
