Last year, Cooking Mama Corporation filed a trademark for Camping Mama in the U.S. Like previous Mama games, this is going to be a Nintendo DS affair, but the game’s full title is Camping Mama + Papa in Japan.


While the Cooking Mama series has primarily been targeted at girls, developer Office Create say that Camping Mama + Papa can be enjoyed by boys, too. The game takes place on “Adventure Island” and has over a 100 mini-games to partake in.


These are divided into: cooking, action, thinking, capture, crafting and so on. One of these appears to involve swinging like Tarzan over a herd of hippos.


Camping Mama + Papa is slated for release on July 14th in Japan. You can find more screens of the game over at Impress Watch.
