According to this, publisher Mastiff has licensed the gaming rights for the Major League Eating franchise in the States. We couldn’t make this next sentence up, so we’re just going to paste it: “Major League Eating, which oversees all top eating events in the nation including the July Fourth hot dog-eating contest, counts among its members Takeru Kobayashi, the Japanese eating phenomenon, and American Joey Chestnut, current champion of the world.”

Pathetic. Major League Eating: The Game (really) has no release date as yet.
