Think Recettear: An Item’s Shop Tale, but instead of managing a store you’re in charge of a bar. That’s the premise of Adventure Bar of Wonderland Portable. The goal in this upcoming PSP game is to have the best bar in the kingdom.
How do you do this? By rising the ranks in cooking contests and drink sales tallies the monarchy arranges at fixed times. Sounds like Wonderland is one kingdom that doesn’t have to worry about a pending apocalypse.
Adventure Bar of Wonderland Portable still has dungeons to explore and monsters to fight. That’s how you’ll find ingredients to cook exotic dishes. Adventure Bar of Wonderland Portable has a turn based combat system and uses something similar overkill mechanic from Final Fantasy X. Defeat an enemy with full force and you have a better chance of getting rare food. Developer Rideon Games created more than 10 types of dungeons and over 400 recipes for their PSP game.
Adventure Bar of Wonderland Portable will be available on Japan’s PlayStation Store on July 12 for 600 yen ($7.30).
