Dungeon Crawling Cooking JRPG ‘Monster Menu: The Scavenger’s Cookbook’ Shares 8-Page Mini Manga

Publisher NIS America has shared an official English mini-manga for the upcoming Nippon Ichi Software-developed dungeon-crawling RPG, Monster Menu: The Scavenger’s Cookbook. The brief read primarily highlights the cooking mechanic players will be able to engage with.

This dungeon-crawling strategy JRPG fittingly has cooking mechanics for the cast to get a leg up on foes. Players will have to make their 4-person party via character creation, gather items and ingredients during exploration, and tactically battle monsters. Survival and roguelike elements are also included in this experience. Further, English audio will be implemented.

In gameplay, players can gather materials and ingredients to cook, restoring calories and water. Stats and skills can also be learned via cooking. Additionally, poorly cooked dishes can be utilized as weapons against foes. Combat is turn-based, with the order depending on the units’ speed. Team-up attacks can occur if certain teammates are in the vicinity of each other as well.
