PLay Ball

All work and no play makes for a sloppy soldier. That's why members of the Federation Force like to unwind with a good game of Blast Ball, a fast-paced team sport where only the best come out on top. Using your Mechs, you and your teammates must shoot the ball into your opponent's goal. It not only sharpens your skills in the field, but it's a real blast to play!

Pro Tips

Blast Ball is a tough, demanding sport that can make even the toughest soldiers crumble. Luckily, we've got some pointers to help you take your game to the next level.

Skill Shots

You'll discover right away that Blast Ball is no walk in the park. It requires top-notch sharpshooting skills — and sometimes a little luck — to get the ball where you want it. With a little practice, though, you'll be blasting with the best of them.


Whether you're looking for the ball, or trying to locate your teammates, it pays to be aware of your surroundings. If you're lucky, you also might spot a power-up that could really boost your game.

The incredible shrinking goal

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you—the goal really is shrinking! Each time you score a point, the goal shrinks a bit, so be sure to shoot early and often!

Even More Fun With Friends

You can play Blast Ball against computer opponents, but it's more fun to play with—and against—friends and family. Multiplayer supports up to 6 players*, and thanks to Nintendo 3DS Download Play, you only need one game, so gather up your crew and blast away!
