Transform and Ink-Roll Out: Splatoon gets a Transformers homage


Make like a Squid, Kid

Nintendo's friendly shooter Splatoon is definitely looking to be the mimetic flavor of the moment, judging from the amount of buzz it's been generating online, but hey, if it somehow results in awesome art and whatnot, I'm all for it.

Last thing to add to the "Oh God, please make this happen" list is a nifty bit of fan art from Twitter user Kamizono144, who re-envisioned one of the game's cephalo-children as a Transformer toy, complete with a detailed transformation diagram with step-by-step instructions for converting kid to squid and vice-versa.

For now it's just a funky picture, but you could easily see it happening in some capacity. I wouldn't be surprised to see some kind of mock-up appearing at a future Wonder Festival or in the pages of our toy-loving buds at Tomopop.

Check out more of Kamizono's art on Pixiv, where they've put up a four-issue Transformers and Kantai Collection crossover manga.
