Capcom celebrates Resident Evil 6 by, er... opening a restaurant? Food is alternately exciting and disgusting

So you've just announced the latest entry in one of your two biggest franchises. The trailer is a barn-stormer and everyone is excited. Life is great. You want to splash out. So you do the obvious thing that a multinational Japanese game publisher does. You open a restaurant and start peddling edible brains.

That's what the house of Resi did this week. Yep, the Capcom Bar now exists in Shinjuku Tokyo, and its cool-but-possibly-sick-inducing-after-you've-been-in-there-for-a-while cobalt lighting scheme belies a multitude of genius (and occasionally horrible-looking) game-themed dishes. Resident Evil, Phoenix Wright, Monster Hunter and the Sengoku Basara (or Devil Kings) series are all represented with a plethora of imaginative conceptual touches. Some of which might even be so imaginatively conceptual as to make you do a little dry wretch. But that just proves that they're entirely successful as far as I'm concerned. 

From the Resi camp, for example, you could have a brain-cake dessert: 

Or how about 'Tofu Mode', if you're desperate to know what a Resident Evil 2 side-game tastes like: 

In terms of Phoenix Wright, you could have - amongst other things - a stack of onion rings with a croquet and chip gavel: 

Fancy something more Monster Huntery? How about an Airu Village mushroom and clam chowder?

Or maybe the truly horrific-looking leg of some manner of beastie. Probably a monster. That has been successfully hunted:

Want more of this culinary Capcomian madness? Of course you do. Click over to the restaurant's site for the full menu. And yes, they do have a Resident Evil herb salad.

And some sodding beautiful cocktails.

    For Thanksgiving they could bring you a turkey in a barrel that you have to break open by punching it.

    I still think this is an elaborate joke. But! If it is true, I'd like to order some Amaterasoup (comes with a little sprig of clover). Or how about some Ghosts and Goulash (that well known Transylvanian delicacy)?

    loved the okami joke. Also that Phoenix Wright dish has got to be the fanciest way to serve onion rings I've ever seen but what really confuses me is why onion rings?

    This all looks amazing... but I reckon I'll wait till they offer Super/Ultimate/Gold Editions of their items. Oh and those condiments are DLC extra, but SO worth it.

    I checked out the cocktails and thanks to google chrome's translate button it says this about the Resi cocktail called "shotgun" "If the selector is big damage shotgun at close range hit! Massive damage to your liver! ?" Now it may not be perfect grammar because of the translation but I'm liking the massive damage to liver bit.
