Exhibition Match (バッティングショー Batingu Sho?, "Batting Show") is the 23rd game in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 16th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. This game's setting is a baseball field, and you are playing as a slugger who must hit the baseball thrown by a pitcher to the beat.

Gameplay

Exhibition Match Wii gameplay
Exhibition match 3ds gameplay
The player controls Slugger the batter in yellow on the left side of a baseball field. On the other side of the field, Pitcher, a young girl wearing pink, will throw a baseball at the batter. The baseball will be thrown behind a curtain and will fly out after four beats. The player needs to swing on the fifth beat to hit the ball out of the park.

The entire game revolves around trying to mislead the player. The player merely needs to swing on the fifth beat; however, the game will try to use visuals and sound to make the player swing at the wrong time. This includes making the screen visibly beating it an unhelpful pattern, zooming in, cutting off music, and at one point zooming all the way out of the park. To do good on the game, the player needs to keep rhythm without the game's help.

Controls

Button Mode

  • A: Swing bat

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap: Swing bat

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The batter will successfully hit the ball at the screen (literally breaking it at one point) as the crowd cheers. The more hits the player make as the game goes on, the more the batter will show off, doing things like waving his bat.
  • Barely: The pitcher will also get more upset and nervous as more hits are made, and will even throw her hat on the ground if the first five throws are hit. The batter will simply tap the ball as it falls to the ground. The pitcher will be happy when this happens. A barely counts as a miss.
  • Miss: Not even hitting the ball when swinging will cause the batter to spin around from the swing, the audience amused. Not swinging at all will cause the batter to look confused as the ball goes past him. Either way, the pitcher will be happy.

Alternate Strategy
Only the best batters get to appear in these exhibition matches, but I hear that at least one got there by just being a big, scary guy that no one wanted to refuse.

Trivia

  • The game's general gameplay and controls make it reminiscent of the Rhythm Tengoku game Spaceball.
  • This game and Spaceball both show up in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, meaning the game has two separate Baseball games.
  • When the pitcher walks back, one can see her walking through the hat she threw on the ground. This error was fixed in Megamix.
  • The VS screen featuring Pitcher and Slugger in Megamix version has been redrawn a little to introduce them as they are ready to begin the match, but in Fever, the VS screen features their appearances in a close up.
