Batali and Morimoto "Star" in Iron Chef Video Game

You'll remember there was that one video game for Hell's Kitchen released earlier this summer, but it didn't get points for accuracy. For one, Gordon Ramsay said nice things and, like, smiled. Now we have an experience that's guaranteed to be infinitely more like the real thing: Iron Chef: Supreme Cuisine for Wii and Nintendo DS (whaaaat no PS3!?), with the chef avatars of Mario Batali and Masaharu Morimoto confirmed:

"Both Batali and Morimoto are lending their voices and likenesses to the game so that Iron Chef fans and gamers alike can play as these world famous Iron Chefs, or take them on head-to-head in the fast-paced culinary tournaments of Kitchen Stadium."

The renderings above are looking pretty good so far, and when it comes to the character in action, Batali personally guarantees us that it's all him: "My video game counterpart is as passionate and competitive in the virtual Kitchen Stadium as I am in real life." We'll believe it when we see the virtual Crocs.
