The Nintendo 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games offers both local and download play multiplayer for up to four players. Download play gives the players the option to compete in both highlight match and event medleys, controlled by the host. During this mode, after completing an event, the usual option to quit is replaced with the option to disconnect the other players.
In this mode, the player can use tickets earned in-game for competing in events and playing various events to spin the badge machine and collect various badges in the game. The number of tickets that the player has earned is only shown when viewing the machine and are given no indication that they are earned when playing in other modes. A maximum of 999 tickets can be held at once. A badge can be earned by using the stylus to spin the handle onscreen, or by pressing the A Button. 160 different badges can be obtained from the machine, distributed across three different rarities- there are 100 common badges of various objects that come in blue capsules, 40 uncommon badges that come in yellow capsules of minor Mario and Sonic characters, plus six of the London 2012 Olympic mascot Wenlock, and then 20 rare badges of the athlete characters that come in pink capsules. Badges with higher rarities have a higher background, with the rare badges appearing with an exclusive square shape. Each badge can be collected multiple times, with the number obtained also recorded. The player can also press the Y Button as a shortcut to their badge collection.
Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games features a ranking system for each of the profiles in the game, based on the completion of the save file. Progress for various modes in the game, including medals earned, badges collected, and Story Mode episodes completed, which give the player a star ranking from 0 to 5. Each ranking can be accompanied by a number of different titles, which can change without the player going up a rank and can be affected by the events that the player plays most frequently. The following titles are available for each rank:
The Nintendo 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games features a total of 57 events, the most of any instalment in the series. The events are split across 11 different classes, and make use of most of the features of the Nintendo 3DS as inputs for them. Each event has a specific character group that is used for it, and the player can only choose from characters in that group to play the event- for example, 100m is a Heroes event, and hence the player can only use Mario, Luigi, Sonic or Tails to play it. Each event has three difficulty settings which alter the performance of the COM characters in the events, as well as being given a game level rating which estimates the complexity of the event, going from one to three stars. Different events also require different numbers of characters, and as such may require the player to select multiple characters to compete in the event, or to pick one out to specifically control in the team. Some of the events also record records, which will have a starting record when the game is first played, but if the player manages to beat the record, their record will be stored as the top one for the event instead.
On March 1, 2012, a demo of the 3DS version of the game was released on the Nintendo eShop. Five events are playable in the demo: 25m Rapid Fire Pistol, Football, Trampoline, 100m Backstroke, and BMX. The player cannot choose their character or name, as it is always set to "M&S". The demo can be launched a maximum of 30 (20 in Europe) times once downloaded.

Similarly to many of the other games in the series, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games was developed by Sega and Group 4 of Nintendo Software Planning & Development, with Sega also handling the publishing in most regions, and Nintendo publishing the game in Japan and South Korea. The game shares many of the key staff with the Wii version of the game, with both featuring Nobuya Ohasis as producer and Okitane Usui as executive producer. Osamu Ohashi as chief producer from Sega, and Tomoyoshi Hamane, Emi Watanabe, Toyokazu Nonaka, Hiroshi Sato, Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata in various production roles for Nintendo. The Nintendo 3DS version does have some specific staff, with Koji Shindo as director and Shinya Takahashi as a general producer for Nintendo. Many of the staff for this game have returned from working on earlier instalments in the series.
You can boot up the demo for 30 times. When you died or beat the game you can go back to the title screen without closing the demo. You can play it as many consecutive times as you want on a single use. There's no problem with that. But if you boot the demo up and close it down immediately, it counts as a use.
On a side note, I nearly crapped myself while playing the RE demo. (I'm not good at playing horror games.) The graphics really surprised me though. I saw the screenshots but actually playing the game blew me away.
My demo is downloading as I type this! I cannot wait to try the demo out before I get the game. I didn't want to buy RE Mercenaries to try the game out. I just hope it's a new demo instead of a months old.
Limited or not, I like having the option of playing a demo. The game is released in around two weeks, so 30 plays are more than enough. And I guess the demo works, since I was not really that interested in this game, and now it smells like a must buy.
@cheapogamer4life: My 3DS menu expanded from 60 to 120 shortly after the June update. Someone else told me in the forum section that the menu will expand automatically to 180 when you fill it up. I have 100 slots used on my 3DS home menu, and so far it has not expanded, nor have I seen any hardcore proof (screenshots) online that it will or won't expand itself. NOA's website makes no mention of this issue. I'm curious to see what happens though when I try to stuff that last item. If they simply won't fit, you could probably keep more items without deleting/redownloading by swapping SD cards, kinda like the old-fashioned memory cards of old, but you're supposed to shut down the system before swapping cards. Game carts with extra data stored on the SD card, like the MK7 channel, would probably get screwed up by the swap, though.
