Muramasa: The Demon Blade Gorges on Japanese Food Porn

The edible videogame power-up is as old as Pac-Man. But few games linger so longingly on food as Vanillaware's Muramasa: The Demon Blade.

Between swordfights in this 2-D brawler for the Wii, protagonist Kisuke can take a lunch break in an old-school Japanese noodle house. Players fork over dough for different dishes that grant in-game bonuses. The main dishes are served with a hot, steaming bowl of soba - all rendered in the same lovely, hand-drawn art as the rest of the game.

Servings can't be gobbled up in one bite: It takes a series of button-presses to slurp down every bit of these virtual meals. With each swoop of the chopstick, the contents of the laquerware bowl slowly disappear until the entire dish has been polished off. (Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Wii)
