Badminton is a series of two events in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Nintendo 3DS). The two events are Singles and Doubles.
This version is for the Tricksters group. Its game level is three stars.
In or Out?
A badminton shuttle is thrown. The player must decide if it's in or out. If the shuttle goes past the red line behind the character, it is out. When the shuttle is in, it has to be hit. When the shuttle is out, it has to be dodged. The shuttles will speed up over time. The shuttles will also start acting differently. They will sometimes drop down when it seems like the shuttle would be out, or the shuttles will move in a curvy line. Also, sometimes the camera view will change and make it harder to decide if the shuttle is in or out. The game ends after missing 3 times.
This version is for the Heroes group. Its game level is two stars.
Rule the Rally!
Two players are on each side. The two teams rally the shuttle back and forth. The player must hit the shuttle when it starts blinking red. Hitting it a little early or a little late will allow the opponents on the other side to hit a powerful shot together. The rally gets faster as the game continues. The player needs 3 points to win.
