Blast Ball is a multiplayer mode and in-universe sport game that will appear in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. It was teased on June 14, 2015, two days before the full game's reveal. Blast Ball can be played alone or against local or online players. Players who do not possess a copy of Federation Force will be able to play this mode through Nintendo 3DS Download Play. The game mode has been released as a standalone title, Metroid Prime: Blast Ball, in the Nintendo eShop as a free downloadable demo in both the European and American storefronts.
This game has up to 6 players and is essentially a space version of soccer. The players are split into two teams, Indigo and Gold, and play in Mech suits. The object of the game is to shoot a large ball into the opposing team's net to score a goal, and the first team that scores three goals wins the match. To complicate things, the ball damages players on contact, and must be propelled using weapon blasts rather than kicks. Additionally, each time a goal is scored by one team, the opposing team's net will shrink in size, making the next goal more difficult. A sudden death overtime mode can sometimes happen when teams are tied, in which both goals expand to their full size again. Due to the use of Mech suits, players are encouraged to attack the opposing team; damaged players will be temporarily disabled, allowing the opposing team to score easier goals. Power-ups appear in predetermined zones of the arena at regular intervals. These include Repair Capsules which can heal players, Shields, Adrenaline, and Eject.
