Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games[edit]

Blaze reappears in as an All-Around playable character in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. She is now voiced by Laura Bailey, reprising her role from 2010's Sonic Free Riders. In this game, Blaze wears her athletic wear from Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for most Events, her winter gear for Equestrian events and a new outfit for Gymnastics and Aquatics events. In the opening, Blaze appears at the start with all of the other athletes, as well as competing in Synchronized Swimming and Dream Uneven Bars. An updated version with the athletic wear of the Mii outfit appears, and Blaze is also a character that can be spoken to in order to play minigames and earn stickers in London Party mode.

In the Nintendo 3DS version, Blaze is included in the Girls group, meaning that she is only playable in certain events. In the Story Mode, Blaze first appears protecting a group of Toads with Peach from some Fog Imposters, which they manage to defeat and then save Daisy and Amy. The group then find Rouge, and after recovering from her brainwashing she leads them to Hyde Park's Fog machine, which Blaze destroys. Blaze decides to stay behind in Hyde Park with the other girls, Rouge and Toads to keep an eye on things there. She later calls Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Tails to support them when they face Bowser and Dr. Eggman, and appears at the opening ceremony for the games. In the bonus episodes, Blaze appears volunteering to help with the invitations with Peach, the Toads and Amy, and challenges Amy to an Olympic Event to try to stop her when she asks to deliver Sonic's invitation personally. Although Amy wins, Blaze manages to accidentally knock the invitations onto the floor, so Amy decides to stay anyway to help pick them up. Blaze later helps Princess Peach when she tries to stop Daisy from taking Amy on a shopping trip. Blaze helps to mail the invitations out, and after the group concludes that Bowser and Dr. Eggman got their invitations, Blaze tries to head back to the hotel, but is convinced to go on a shopping trip with Peach, Daisy, Amy and the Toads instead. A badge of Blaze can also be obtained from the badge machine.
