Japanese noodle maker Nissin just announced a new Cup Noodle called “Black Seafood” that looks incredibly similar to a recently released game. Hrm. I wonder which one...


The Japanese at the bottom of the label reads “Squid Ink Black Seafood.” According to the official press release, the packaging has a “colorful splash pattern” and a “pop” style design.


Elsewhere on the release, there is no mention of Splatoon 2 or Nintendo.
