After a 13-year hiatus, Iron Chef is returning to Japanese television. The show, which originally ran from 1992 to 1999 in Japan, became a cult hit abroad after it was dubbed for Western audiences (see above).
It's not yet known whether host Takeshi Kaga and his bell pepper will be returning for the show. Gamers will remember that Shigesato Itoi, of Earthbound fame, appeared on the show as a judge.
New episodes of Iron Chef broadcast on Japanese TV starting this October.
