Game Of The Week – Toriko: Gourmet Battle
Based on the popular Toriko anime and manga series Gourmet Battle tasks players with searching for precious foods in order to create the ideal full-course meal. However the evil Gourmet Corps have other plans as they try to take over and control the world’s entire food supply.
Gameplay features multiplayer brawls similar to those found in the Smash Bros series and offers players over 45 characters to choose from.
Unfortunately due to the relative anonymity of this series in the West it is highly unlikely we will see a localisation of this title in the near future, but we can hope!
