Ain't Squiddin': Splatoon x Squid Girl is the crossover to watch


The deal is inked

It looks like Splatoon's the game to take the world by storm this year. Nintendo's paint-themed squid-kid shooter's quickly barged its way into the gamer hivemind on a spray of bright paint, and you know what that means: Cross-promotion!

And honestly, it couldn't have happened to a more appropriate property: The Big N have teamed up with Masahiro Anbe, creator of the Invasion! Squid Girl! manga to create crossover promo art featuring the game's "Inkling" squid kids and Squid Girl herself, and it looks like a free update in August may feature a Squid Girl-themed costume. 

For what it's worth, the game does seem quite rad, and it's only fitting that it be hanging out with a rad manga like Squid Girl, I squid you not.
