January 13, 2010, U.S. – Nintendo’s new video game Fast Food Panic allows inspiring entrepreneurs to get virtual experience in running their own restaurant.

Available now for the Nintendo DS and later this month for the Nintendo Wii, the game puts players behind the grill as an entrepreneur of a small, lively new restaurant that features a menu of pizza, burgers and sushi. Those who impress customers with superior service and fantastic meals will find their restaurant growing and their kitchen overflowing with orders. Their hole-in-the-wall restaurant will turn into a culinary empire.
 
In order to move up the restaurant ladder, players will have to woo their patrons by perfecting their pizza-tossing, burger-grilling and sushi-rolling skills. As their restaurant's popularity and reputation increases, not only will gamers have to juggle cooking multiple meals at once, but they also will have to take on the additional responsibilities of taking out the trash, calculating checks, chasing away pests and washing dishes to make sure their customers’ experience is perfect.
 
Fast Food Panic was developed by video game publisher SouthPeak Interactive, in collaboration with Nobilis Games.
 
"Fast Food Panic on Wii is about bringing the whole family together with a variety of fun, competitive mini games, like competing to catch the most fish and racing to deliver orders the fastest," said Aubrey Norris, product marketing manager at SouthPeak.

The Nintendo DS version offers a more independent gaming experience "with increasingly difficult challenges and a grand assortment of recipes," said Norris.
