30 years of Final Fantasy celebrated...with CUP NOODLE???
by Michelle "Ms. Geek" Klein-Hass
We are so stunned, like dehydrated vegetable. Square Enix's Final Fantasy series of games have teamed with Nissin for some pretty epic collaboration. The first indication of this was when it was revealed that Nissin had bought product placement in Final Fantasy XV, including a Cup Noodle side-quest. Then came the Final Fantasy x Cup Noodle TV spot.
Now, the celebration continues with a series of 15 "Final Boss" Cup Noodle cups. Each of the Big Bads from the Final Fantasy series of adventure games is portrayed on their very own Cup Noodle, starting with Chaos from the first game:
To cosplay favorite final boss from Final Fantasy VII, Sephiroth:
All the way to the rest of the Big Bads from the series. If you feel the need to "catch 'em all" Japanese fans are able to buy a full-set for 6,085 Yen, which at this current exchange rate is $54 US. A bit pricy for Cup Noodle, but I'm pretty sure nobody's ripping into the pack and eating these noodles.
In a few random full-sets, Nissin will be including 30 Ultimata Weapon Forks. They don't look like they are particularly practical for eating Cup Noodle, but they are pretty sweet looking, as you can see.
Just the ticket for killing that stubborn Final Boss you encounter in a dark alley somewhere.
