Toriko’s Fighting Game Is All About Food

By Spencer . June 23, 2013 . 11:47pm

While you’re waiting for J-Stars Victory Vs., you can play a fighting game starring one of Jump’s characters. Toriko: Gourmetga Battle is a four player free for all brawl with giant monsters in the background.


Food items also show up on the battlefield, there are over 130 kinds of food items like soup, fish, drinks, salad, and dessert that you can eat. In the heat of battle, these fill up your calorie meter (CP) which lets you do super attacks. Food can also strengthen your character stats when a battle is over. Toriko: Gourmetga Battle has the Four Heavenly Kings, a number of enemies, and Terry as playable characters. Other characters like Komatsu are in the game as support characters.


The fight for the Ultimate Meat begins when Toriko: Gourmetga Battle comes out on July 4 for Nintendo 3DS.

    looks awesome for a 3DS game. really want it, but unfortunately, i already got an NA 3DS. can’t go getting a jap one again. damn region-locking. that’s why i’ve been spreading this petition i found around:

    • niko

      Unless you can find a way to adjust the currency rate so Japanese games are not 40% more expensive than I don’t see how Nintendo abandons the region lock because it would kill that market. Region locking will never go away on the 3DS.

      What you want is Nintendo to release Japanese games not available here on the e-shop or something of that nature. That’s more realistic.

      You can’t petition a company to harm their business. That’s like me starting a petition for you to hit yourself with a hammer. I’m thinking if i get 10,000 signatures you’d still ignore me.

    Is there an official site for this game?

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Lucky me I have a JP 3DS.

    Is this, or do you think, this game is English friendly? I do want some more fighting-styled games for my J-3DS but I really don’t want to guess this entire game as I know nothing about Toriko.

      It seems so, you can download the Demo on your J-3DS now.
      My experience is that some missions want you to beat up everyone on the screen, some missions will want you to eat more than anyone (perhaps later it will be you vs three people – Gigant Battle and Jump Stars did this) and some will want you to pick up certain food and eat it.

      It seems fairly easy to get through with maybe some mission descriptions aside, if you know your kana, you can even follow it over the occasional kanji in the game.

      As you haven’t tried Toriko yet, I wouldn’t recommend it on the basis of you having little investment in the franchise. Perhaps you could get Jump Super/Ultimate Stars or One Piece Gigant Battle 2 which are better titles based on what I’ve played.

        Alright, thanks for letting me know. I’ve fully completed JUS twice already so that’s fully out of my system, lol.

        I’ll just get Senran Kagura Burst to hold me off until MH4.

        Again, thanks for the head’s up.

        • British_Otaku

          No problem. I should probably get to playing Senran Kagura Burst as well, I finished the original earlier this year and am currently finishing off the achievements and such to see what the last bits of content are…

    another namco bandai game not getting localize. Why dont they ever localize for Nintendo system. Til waiting for Tales of Heart and Innocence

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Please stop the betrayal posts. A fighting game centering a character with spotty at best Western experience that adds foodie elements to the mix. I’m sorry, but that’s just one game not coming over, regardless of the system it is on.

      • Haseyo

        People never think of the business reasons for things not getting localized.

        Money first people. That’s ALWAYS a company’s thought process. Never get that twisted.

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

        Leave me alone. I was only stating what on my mind geez.
