Gear was introduced in the Wii U exclusive action game Splatoon in an update on 8/6 as a collaboration between it and Masahiro Anbe’s series Shinryaku! Ika Musume’s and its titular character Squid Girl.

In the issue of Weekly Shonen Champion released on the same day, a new illustration of Splatoon protagonist Inkling and Squid Girl was published.

New Collab Illustration in Weekly Shonen Champion

Inkling, who can transform into the shape of a squid in Splatoon, and Squid Girl, an invader who comes from the ocean in the slapstick comedy Shinryaku! Ika Musume.

Given that both protagonists share the common feature of being squids, when Splatoon first went on sale there were official collaboration illustrations published, and it was announced that they were working on collab gear.



*I heard there’s a collab illustration in today’s issue of “Weekly Shonen Champion” of the usual squid alongside another type named “Squid Girl.” Apparently there will be another collab aside from the illustration.*
*Please go see the rest of this picture in “Weekly Shonen Champion.”*



*It looks like “Squid Girl” gear has been introduced in “Splatoon.”*
*I see, so that’s what that earlier illustration was about!*
*After this update, the gear will appear as bouillabaisse.*
*It would be fun to complete the look to appear like Squid Girl.*

The gear being announced will show up in the game’s item shop as ”bouillabaisse” at random. The grand prize winner of the gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu’s collaboration design ”Squid Fashion Contest,” the “Sushi Shop Taisho” gear, has also been added.



*The “Sushi Shop Taisho” gear, the grand prize winner of the recent Weekly Famitsu “Squid Fashion Contest,” will also be added after today’s update.*
*This will also appear as bouillabaisse, so if you see it, be sure to get it.*
