NIS America brings Shikabane-gurai no Bouken Meshi to the west as Monster Menu: The Scavenger's Cookbook for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch

NIS America has announced that they are localizing Shikabane-gurai no Bouken Meshi as Monster Menu: The Scavenger's Cookbook. It is coming to the west in spring 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The title was previously released in Japan earlier this year on January 27.

In Monster Menu: The Scavenger's Cookbook, players cook the monsters they slay to get stronger. Several adventurers were shown in its announcement trailer, including Amanda, Reuben, Sigmar, Lumetia, Moira, Joshua, Klaus, and Chanel. People can freely customize the appearance of their own characters as well, once they've chosen a class for them.

Throughout Monster Menu: The Scavenger's Cookbook, battles will revolve around each character's diet because their calorie and fluid levels will deplete as they fight and engage in other activities.

For more information on Monster Menu: The Scavenger's Cookbook, we shared a handful of gameplay details when it was announced in Japan on October 2021. Later in November 2021, we described the game's roguelike and survival elements, and in the following month even more news was shared with the title's jobs, equipment, skills, and more.
