Splatoon 2’s Splatfest carries over the mayonnaise vs. ketchup theme into the actual ink

Posted on August 4, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Splatoon 2’s first actual Splatfest carries the same topic worldwide. It’s the battle of the condiments: mayonnaise and ketchup.

Even in the battles themselves, Nintendo is holding true to the Splatfest theme. The ink colors have the same exact mayonnaise and ketchup theme. Pretty neat, right?

The first Splatfest is already underway in Japan. It’ll begin at 12 AM ET / 9 PM PT tonight. In Europe, it’s scheduled to start at 4 PM on Saturday. Each event lasts for a full day.

    I am shocked, I say, shocked. It’s not as though this happened with literally every other Splatfest before.

    I mean, sure, the colors involved are weird, but this…really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. I’d be more surprised if they changed it, honestly.

    • DeltaPeng

      I’m pretty sure every other splatfest only had t-shirt colors change, not ink

      • Lief Katano

        Nope. All Splatfests – both in the first game and 2 – forced Inklings to use the color of the team they picked for all battles going on during Splatfest that contributed to the goal (ex. a Ketchup vs. Ketchup fight would use the normal colors, but Ketchup vs. Mayo would use red and white).

    I feel like this is a test to see if people are mature enough to handle these colors. If a ton of people start making inappropriate plaza posts then that could be their sign to not use these colors again.

      So you haven’t seen the posts on the square right now, huh.

      • There’s always been inappropriate posts, and quite a few. I think the ratio of them will be telling.

        • Dascylus

          People should’ve expected this the moment they moved to a more social media based method of posting memes. They can’t really moderate Facebook or Twitter posts, after all.

      • ≈ KobobKC ≈ ᔦꙬᔨ

        Yeah I’ve seen them.

    • ronin4life

      I already turned off posts after the furry brigading soo…

        we will follow you to the ends of the world

  • José Pedrero

    Okay, here comes the memes about how much mayo looks like… well…

  • Francesco Gentile

    Okay now memes and idiot things will start, unfortunately. But i’m surprised by Nintendo, a lot of things are changing

  • theFooFighter

    Oh god there’s ©um and blood everywhere

    • Hidden Flare

      Finally someone says it.

    • hi-chan!

      I hate it when blood comes out 🙁

    • Exy

      Is this better or worse than when Splatoon 1 did piss and blood?

  • tHe_MaN_wItH_nO_hAnD

    Too bad no one is mature enough to handle these colours outside of Japan, wonder how long before it gets changed, hope I get to play a few rounds and take a few screenshots

    • Hidden Flare

      You really think no one in Japan will make the same jokes?

      • It’s not like they won’t, but they probably won’t make them as much on the plaza; they may save most of the jokes for Twitter or something.

        • NintendoPSXTheSecond

          2ch lol

          • Oh goodness, yikes. Better there than the plaza though.

    • Tlink7

      Japan has immature people just like the rest of the world you know…

      • tHe_MaN_wItH_nO_hAnD

  • Airsh Bornely

    Awesome! They don’t look to saturated to be mistaken for “other” things, but of course people will still make jokes. Sucks I can’t participate in this since I just order the game and won’t get here until Monday after the Splatfest has ended.

  • Blanco8x8

    Can’t wait to have strangers shoot mayonnaise all over my face…

    • ronin4life

      …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

      …….ok

    • Ninty Kad

      …….That must have came out wrong…. right?

  • shani

    Wait, what? I thought Nintendo always excluded red ink because of its similarity to blood?
    Would be nice if they included the full colour spectrum in the normal game.

  • Jacob Groves

    Funny u know. Colour of those look like blood and c u m. 🙂

    I love Splatoon 2 so much and one of best games this year. 🙂

  • ChaosNocturne

    you know they are actually just making massive amounts of fry sauce

    • Xelor41023

      Fry sauce is the real winner of the splatfest.

  • ChaosNocturne

    looks like my rear after my bf got done last night

    • Frank Rodriguez

      DAAAAAAAYUM, LOL!!

    • Ninty Kad

      Jesus crust…

    • Well, get it then, ChaosNocturne. Heyyy~!

  • Coonfoot

    Remember back in the first game when the developers said red ink wouldn’t be a thing because it looked too much like blood? My, how things change…
