McDonald's stores across Japan are hoping to cut training time in half for new part-time employees. The fast food chain has teamed up with Nintendo to develop a game designed to teach employees proper food preparation. The game, called eSmart, will become a McDonald's training tool later this year. The Nintendo and McDonald's training game is rumored to be similar to Cooking Mama games and will help employees learn the correct way to build sandwiches--bun, ketchup, onions, pickles, cheese, meat, bun, for example.

McDonald's plans to incorporate two Nintendo DS systems into each of its 3,700 Japan locations. Software development aside, McDonald's will spend 200 million yen (about $2.2 million) on the new training program.
