Time to celebrate. It's been almost five years since the first Monster Hunter action role-playing-game launched on the PlayStation 2 in Japan. What better way to celebrate than with cake.

The first game went on sale March 11, 2004. Other MH titles followed, and the series is credited with being the PSP's "must-have" title in Japan. To date, the franchise has shipped 3 million copies.

To mark the anniversary, eatery Pasela Café is offering customers a special menu with MonHun-themed food like the pictured Monster Hunter "honey toast", which is limited to the first fifty orders. First come, first served.
