Daisy makes a playable appearance in the third installment of the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games known as Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. She appears in both the Wii and 3DS variant. She is once again classified as a Speed character.
The third game in the Mario & Sonic series was released on November 13, 2011 in Europe.
In the introduction video, there are four shots with Daisy. In the beginning, all characters are standing on a stage in the Olympic stadium. Later, Daisy and the other girls are participating in synchronized swimming. Then, there is a shot of Daisy making a great save in Beach Volleyball. Eventually, all the girls are at an award ceremony, all wearing a gold medal (possibly from the Synchronized Swimming earlier).
Swimsuits were introduced in this game. Sega originally wanted to introduce the swimsuits in the first game of the series, but Nintendo rejected the idea. Sega still had problems, as some characters just can't wear swimming clothes (for example: Sonic can't take his shoes off, imagine Bowser in swimwear), so they decided that only the females would wear swimsuits.
You can obtain a Daisy suit for your Mii with the in-game scratch cards. To do this, you have to win by scratching two Daisy outfits. You can also get it by paying 10 blank cards.
Daisy holds the developer's record for the 100m Freestyle swimming event.
Bio and Statistics Edit
In the 3DS version, Daisy is in the "Girls" group, alongside Peach, Blaze and Amy. The group is limited to certain events, including Swimming and Beach Volleyball. Daisy's model looks the same as it does in the Wii version, but her eyes are static, possibly to maintain the frame rate.
Daisy also plays a major role in the "Girls Story" of the game.
Peach, Amy, Blaze and a few Toads finish preparing the invitations for the Olympic games. Later Daisy arrives and informs the rest of the girls that she is going shopping, and Amy asks to join her which angers the others as earlier Amy had promised to stay and help with the invitations. Peach then suggests a challenge for Daisy, being if she loses she will have to stay and help finish the invitations, but if Daisy wins, she and Amy will be free to go shopping. Daisy excepts and the two begin the event. Once Peach defeats Daisy, she stays to help.
On the morning of the Olympic Games, Amy shows up to Hyde Park to greet Daisy. After noticing the strange fog and the absence of Peach and Blaze they consult one another for information, the two then decide to make their way over to the park's entrance. Instead of finding Peach and Blaze, they encounter two mysterious fog creatures resembling Peach and Blaze. At first Amy and Daisy are convinced they were real but they soon come to the realization that they were impostors. Once Daisy and Amy defeat them in an Olympic event, the Fog Creatures mysteriously vanish. The two are attacked by a hoard of Fog Creatures. Later after defeating more Fog Creatures, Peach and Blaze find Amy and Daisy unconscious, when the two wake up, they become startled but are eventually calmed down by Peach and Blaze. They then encounter Rouge the Bat who challenges the girls to an event, Peach excepts and defeats Rouge in the 100m Backstroke event. The group then runs off too destroy a fog machine in the park. Once Blaze destroys the machine the girls encounter Mario, Luigi and Toad who later leave to continue their journey. Once Mario, Luigi, Sonic and Tails defeat Dr. Eggman and Bowser, Daisy can be seen alongside the other girls at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.
