Fan the Flames

Looks like you'll be needing to heat up the pot by fanning the fire beneath it. You'll be using motion controls, pressing A and moving the joy con in a forward motion.


You'll also be stirring up the ingredients, it looks like you'll be rotating the R-stick and moving the joy con around.
