Please see my Everything you need to know about Yume Wo Katare post

I found these rumors on Eater, but nothing else.
Today I was walking by what I thought was ZING! Pizza at 1923 Mass Ave. when I noticed there were buckets on the floor and it appeared to be closed. I walked up to the window to peer in and saw that the window was covered with pictures of restaurant openings in Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo & Hyogo and magazine articles about ramen!!! Unfortunately, I couldn't read the articles because they're in Japanese. :(
Porter Sq. already has Sapporo Ramen in the Porter Exchange, but I haven't been excited about them since they changed their menu a few years ago. It will be very exciting to have another ramen option in Porter.
Also, I had no idea ramen had become trendy.
Update 7/18/12: Rumor has it that the new ramen place will open this fall. Can't wait!
Update 8/6/12: There are signs in the window saying "Sept Open"!
