Video features gameplay footage, previews original story

The official website of FuRyu's upcoming Shokugeki no Soma: Yūjō to Kizuna no Hitosara (Shokugeki no Soma: The Dish of Friendship and Bonds) Nintendo 3DS game began streaming the game's promo video on Sunday.

The video features the opening theme of the Shokugeki no Soma anime, "Kibō no Uta" (Song of Hope) by Ultra Tower.

The game will ship on December 17 for 5,980 yen (roughly US$48) and will feature an 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.

Shun Saeki and Yūto Tsukuda 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.

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