UFO Kamen Yakisoban was the main character, played by Michael Tomioka, in a series of TV commercials for "UFO" instant yakisoba noodles produced by Nissin Foods. A feature film was released in 1994 directly to VHS video, which also featured Dave Spector as Kettler. The theme from the movie, sung by Hironobu Kageyama, was released on a CD single.
The video game has two versions, one with a drawing on the cover and another with pictures of the actors, changing only the end of the name of the game from one version to another. The noodle superhero wants to marry the princess, but Kettler wants her for himself. The hero wears a bowl of UFO yakisoba on his head. There are five stages to overcome until the princess can be rescued.
