The ending to Rumble Ready

The minigame consists of two teams of two players each, though only two players face each other at a time. The point of the minigame is to react to the rumble faster than the other player to receive a capsule, which falls from a machine. If the Rumble Feature is turned off, an exclamation point appears instead. If a player attempts to catch the capsule before the rumble, the capsule automatically goes to the opposing team. The first team to get three capsules is the winner. If neither team has three capsules after a certain number of rounds, the team with more capsules wins.


  • A Button – Catch
