Japanese netizens have noticed something strange about Nissin’s latest special edition of it’s venerable Cup Noodle brand.

The new Black Seafood variety features a white squid on the packaging — reflecting the use of said sea critter’s ink in this item — surrounded by splotches of bright colors. Many have pointed out the resemblance to the artwork associated with “Splatoon 2,” Nintendo’s video game about squid-like kids shooting paint at one another.
