The July/August issue of French gaming mag IG Magazine features an adorable cover with close to a dozen familiar female game characters, all drawn Cooking Mama-style. Magweasel's Kevin Gifford could probably correct or confirm this, but I don't think I've ever seen Mama as the centerpiece for a magazine's cover.

Her prominence is appropriate considering that Majesco just announced another DS entry (Cooking Mama 3) to her successful casual franchise yesterday. I imagine some will take issue with the cover, though, construing it as sexist for seemingly suggesting that these female characters belong in the kitchen.

Soulcalibur's Ivy, crossing her arms in the background, realizes what's going on and will have no part of it. You can see a larger version of the cover after the break, and read about the forthcoming 270-page issue's articles (in French) here.
