Japan's insatiable hunger for Monster Hunter can only be cured with ... actual food, inspired by Monster Hunter. Chain restaurant Anrakun is preparing a special menu of four dishes inspired by Capcom's multiplayer hack 'n slash, including a "cow bone" (pictured left) and boney sausages (pictured right). These delicacies are not cheap, going for 609 yen each (~$7.38).
