The results are in for the first true North American Splatfest in Splatoon 2. Ultimately, it was mayonnaise that beat out ketchup.
Ketchup was much more popular than mayonnaise with 73 percent of the vote. However, mayonnaise took home the battles – just barely so – in the other categories. That helped Team Mayonnaise win by a score of 2-1.
Mayonnaise was also victorious in Japan. We should be finding out about the European results later today.

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