Here’s the latest Monster Menu trailer. It begins by establishing that everyone around Piohne attempts to face its dungeons. The player is one of them, but it’s overwhelming. They turn to eating a rotting monster out of starvation. It knocks them out.

From there, it goes over how things actually work. People will explore dungeons to get materials and face monsters. When they have ingredients, they can combine them to create expected dishes. Eating that can provide stat boosts and bonuses to make them stronger and better able to handle fights. While the exploration adn survival elements are roguelike, the battles are turn-based and strategic.

The Monster Menu: The Scavenger’s Cookbook release date is May 23, 2023. It will show up on the PS4, PS5, and Switch. Limited editions with things like an art book, soundtrack, and apron are available in the NIS America online storefront.
