Heard about this from elsewhere (Reddit maybe?) In the reveal trailer, when it gets to the new special moves, one of them is a splat bomb launcher that has a design based off the Ultra Machine baseball pitcher toy Nintendo made in the 60's. Appears at 1:09.
While it's not a perfect match it does have design similarities like the a red base, blue holding rack and the rotating white launch arm (it even a notch in it though the original has 2 notches as seen below) it's also now been mirrored so it launches (bombs) from the Inkling's right side instead of the left.
Don't know if the jetpack special will count as being FLUDD inspired though . . .

^ Yeah, those are definite unmodified Ultra Machines in RRDB, (I feel like I'm mentioned this cameo before and how weird they looked). Also appears throughout the WarioWare series and in Animal Crossing.
Better images of the "Bomb Launcher" Special have appeared from the official Splatoon Tumblr.
It appears to have have changed (from the original trailer version) to look even more closer to the actual toy. It even has the projectile loader and white flappy launcher on the correct sides. The cross shape bit of blue plastic on the ball holder is there in the new version (from the toy) and explosives are actually stored in visible plastic balls unlike the beta version which has none.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
