Final Fantasy Cup Noodles Celebrate 30 Years of Boss Battles

Okay, we’ve known for a while now Nissin, the company behind Cup Noodles, and Final Fantasy are BFFs. They’ve shared multiple advertising campaigns, including this hilarious and bizarre FFXV/Cup Noodle ad.

But this latest collaboration may take the cake (or the noodle, rather). Nissin is putting out a series of limited-edition Cup Noodles that feature the final bosses of the franchise’s 15 main games.

The noodles, which are sold in a set, go for ¥6,048 (about $55) and ship in March.

How will Final Fantasy fans go about defeating these boss-level noodles? Sure, regular utensils might do the trick, but a lucky 30 folks who enter a raffle will win this 60cm “Ultimate Weapon Fork.” Yes, this is a real thing.

Or will be, at least. Potential fork-wielders can apply from March 9 to April 7.
