Gameplay modes

Free Play (Available for both versions)

Up to 4 players can play in any event. Like in Mario & Sonic at London 2012 Olympic Games, all the Olympic Events and Dream Events are unlocked from the beginning. Achievements also return.

Story Mode (3DS exclusive)

A single player mode in which Mario and Sonic, along with their friends who are recruited throughout the story, set off to save the Olympic Games from Bowser and Eggman.


The night after the opening ceremony, Bowser and Eggman are in the scientist's makeshift base. Both are concerned that, even they were invited for these Olympic Games, Mario and Sonic would still beat them in most of the events and get all the medals. Luckily for them, Eggman has built a gadget that consists of a ray gun and a belt: The ray gun is used to shoot at the person you want to steal his/her abilities from, which are later stored inside the belt's circuits. Without a doubt, they prepare themselves to steal the rest of the alhlete's skills so they can win the gold medals.

WFC (Available for both versions)

The player can access the Nintendo WFC to view and submit their best scores worldwide.
