Sometimes game have “Platinum Hit” written all over them. And then, they are contenders for the “What the Hell are They Thinking?” award. When it comes to creating a videogame based on the world’s most gluttonous acts, the so-called sport of professional eating, we’ll let you decide which award is most appropriate.
Mastiff Games, a San Francisco based publisher mostly known for Gameboy titles, has acquired the video game rights to the Major League Eating competitions.
The MLE, which oversees all American eating events including the National Hot-Dog Eating Contest, the World Deep-Fried Asparagus Eating Championship and the La Costena Jalapeno Eating Contest, are all expected to be featured in Major League Eating: The Game.
According to Mastiff Games, Major League Eating: The Game will feature the world’s greatest eaters competing across 12 different food types. Built much like a fighting game, MLE: The Game requires players to show brilliant on screen eating and a mastery of offensive and defensive weapons including burps, belches and mustard gas.
Mastiff Games has yet to announce a release window or platforms for Major League Eating: The Game.
