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.


  • A Button – Catch

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Be the first player to react to the rumble and catch the capsule. Catch three capsules first or end with the most capsules to win."
  • Advice 1"Press A Button the instant you feel the rumble. If you press it early, the capsule goes to the other team!"
  • Advice 2"If you've turned the Rumble Feature off, an exclamation point will appear instead."
