Co-op cooking romp Overcooked 2 is celebrating Chinese New Year with another free update. The Spring Festival, like last year's Chinese New Year update, includes a pair of new chefs and new kitchens to put them through their paces. Check them out in the trailer above.

Since we're about to enter the Year of the Rat, one of the new chefs is a cute rodent, but it's also accompanied by an equally adorable turtle. I'm going to feel very bad for shouting at them when I inevitably mess up the orders. 

You'll be able to cook in five new levels themed around the Spring Festival, and once again you'll need to watch out for a rogue dragon who couldn't care less that it's getting in your way while you try to run a business. Dragons all have inherited wealth, so they can never understand the plight of the small business owner. 

The Spring Festival update is out now for free.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
