Air Rally 2 (かえってきた バドミントン Kaettekita Badominton?, "Return of Badminton"), knows in Rhythm Heaven Fever as Air Rally (バドミントン Badominton?, "Badminton"), is the 13th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 35th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It features Baxter and Forthington playing badminton in the sky. It's the sequel to Air Rally in Rhythm Heaven Megamix.

Gameplay

Air Rally gameplay
Air rally

The Gameplay is the exact same as the prequel, but the tempo is now much faster. The game takes place much higher in the sky.

In addition to the increased tempo and altered aesthetics, the game will attempt to visually mislead the player by having the two planes distance from each other. The beat remains the same, however, so don't be fooled!

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: Swing racket (hit shuttlecock)

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Swing racket (hit shuttlecock)

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The player hits the shuttlecock towards Forthington.
  • Barely: The player hits the shuttlecock, but it is knocked to the side, and Forthington serves another one. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: The shuttlecock flies past the player, and Forthington serves another one.

Baxter's Racket

Baxter's Racket
Forthington's Rival
Ever since Baxter started using this racket, I haven't been able to keep up with him! I can't believe how much better he's gotten--I must practice...and maybe buy a new racket!

Skill Star

After you pass the boat in the background and the rhythm changes, hit the shuttlecock at the right moment the second time to collect the star.

Trivia

  • The American names of the characters, Baxter and Forthington, is a pun to "back and forth".
  • Sometimes in the background, the player can see the Blue Birds and their captain from Rhythm Heaven flying through the sky, replacing the normal birds. One can also be seen in the Superb epilogue screen.
  • If you miss the last shot of the game, Forthington says, "Come on! You can't miss the last shot! That's just lame! Anyway, good game!"
  • There is no practice for this game in Megamix, but there is a new one that changes distance between Forthington's place to far away while Baxter's place on his right side, making it difficult to hit shuttlecock at the same time.
  • The second "Bu-bum bum bum!" was changed in Megamix.
  • Some of the clouds that block your view from the evening and the night section in the original game of Rhythm Heaven Fever are missing in Megamix.
