How the DualSense wireless controller immerses you in the culinary chaos of Overcooked! All You Can Eat

Hey Chefs! Today, we’re really excited to tell you that Overcooked! All You Can Eat will be a launch title for PlayStation 5! To get you hungry for the culinary delights to come, we want to share a delicious helping of info on the awesome DualSense wireless controller features that we are implementing. PS5 players will not only experience Overcooked in beautiful 4K at 60FPS with all new Trophies to earn, but also enjoy loads of cool new DualSense features.

For Overcooked! AYCE we looked at how best to implement the lightbar, the touchpad, the built-in mic and also for cool and exciting ways to use the DualSense wireless controller’s directional haptic feedback. We’re really happy with what we’ve come up with and we think fans will be too! Let’s take a tour: 

Overcooked: All You Can Eat


When playing Overcooked! All You Can Eat cooperatively with friends, your light bar will match the colour indicator of the chef you are playing. So, player one is red, player two is blue and so on. When playing versus, the lightbar will indicate the colour of your team.

The touchpad will be used to quick select emotes from the emote wheel. So whether you’re communicating effectively with your fellow chefs, or cursing them, your option will be just a swipe away! 


The in-built controller speaker offers up an awesome opportunity to further amplify the chaos of the kitchen. The beeping of a burning recipe, the dreaded alert for a failed order and the round timer will all play using the controller speaker as well as the in-game audio. Double the panic!

Haptic feedback

The haptic feedback system in the DualSense wireless controller offers a whole new level of immersion to Overcooked. Imagine not only being able to see and hear as your food burns but feel it. The horror!

Cooking and Environmental Indicators 

The haptic feedback will not only tell players when something is happening, but also where. Players will be able to tell which side of the kitchen the action is happening by feeling for which side of the controller the vibrations occur. It may be all calm on one side of the kitchen but if a pan is on fire on the other side, your DualSense wireless controller will tell you (it’s okay, we know it wasn’t your fault). 

The vibration will also match the in-game audio, giving you indicators for:

  • Cooking Warning 
  • Fire Ignition 
  • Food Ready
  • Recipe Time Out 
  • Level Timer Countdown 
  • Successful Delivery 
  • Wrong Order
  • Catch 
  • Rat Smack! (Yes, the rats are back!)

It’s been great fun exploring the new options offered by the power of PlayStation 5 and the DualSense wireless controller, and we’re really excited for players to get their hands on the most immersive version of Overcooked! yet. You can’t escape the chaos of the kitchen when you’re holding it in your hands! Happy cooking!
