Splatoon, Nintendo’s new hit IP comes out this week.

It’s an all out turf war in Nintendo’s Splatoon. A game where you
control inklings (human in squid form) as they battle it out for
control of the land.

Wait a sec… A human like squid that shoots ink… That reminds
me of someone.

That’s it, Ika Musume (AKA Squid Girl).

And looks like others have picked up on this. In fact, Shinryaku!
Ika Musume creator, Masahiro Anbe, has expressed his interest for the
franchise through twitter.

A girl inkling in a school uniform that Masahiro Anbe shared.
Taking this a bit further, this image was recently revealed through Nintendo’s twitter feed.
Then in this week’s Weekly Shōnen Champion and Famitsū magazines we got these two pieces of art work.

While not much is known at this point, all evidence seems to be indicating a collaboration of some sorts.

Splatoon will be released in North America and Europe on May 29 and in Australia on May 30.
