We will be seeing this as the game launches on November 11th, 2014 for North America through the PlayStation Network.

This expansion will also include a soundtrack app, which will include the songs for each character.
So what goes in in this game? Like before, the game carries on the games insanely silly and outrageous combos along with tempting specials and offbeat humour into a fast-paced rhythm game, which is set to a soundtrack of upbeat and fun Japanese songs while all the while cooking! The game will be released as a spin-off from the base series of which it comes from. This game will continue the story with the grand rivalry between the ever-competitive filled shinobi school-girls. This will include them taking a break from their ever-going fighting situation that has been going on. This time around they are cooking some amazing Super Dishes for their guests to eat from, all of this being hosted by shinobi master Hanzō himself. What is their prize? A magical scroll he has promised to them through his first ever “Super Dish Gourmet Cook-off”.
