Splatoon 2 – Japanese Splatfest #1 results

Posted on August 5, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

The first actual Splatfest for Splatoon 2 has drawn to a close in Japan. It was a close race all around, but ultimately, Team Mayonnaise came out on top.

Mayonnaise edged out ketchup in terms of both popularity and solo battles respectively at 56 percent and 51 percent respectively. However, ketchup did have one slight victory in team battles at 51 percent.

The final tally was two points for Team Mayonnaise and one point for Team Ketchup.

We’ll have to see how the other Splatfests play out this weekend.

    too bad for mayo garbage that ketchup is winning popularity in NA with all these ketchup vs ketchup matches

  • Huh, I’m glad for mayo but it’s interesting that ketchup tried to edge out in the end.

    For the past week or two since it was announced I have read mayonnaise as mustard, no joke. My brain autofills in the phrase “ketchup and mustard,” wow. I thought like mustard was white in Japan or something when they announced ink colors, that’s how much I could’ve sworn it was mustard.

    Not shocked mind you. I heard Japanese Mayo is different from American Mayo.

      it’s all oil and eggs. in japan mayo is used really commonly on impressive foods unlike how people slather it on burger buns in the west. the japanese are the masters of cold food.

  • Justin McQuillen

    i am a chef in real life and i can confirm that mayonnaise is objectively better than ketchup. there is actually no real debate here, ketchup is garbage food while mayonnaise is one of the most handy food inventions of all time. get rekt.

    Hah! It seems that my victory aura even affects tiny island nations in the east.

  • Japanese Mayonnaise is so good, man. Heck, yeah.
