Nintendo kicked off its Nintendo World Championships at E3 2015 by announcing a new Nintendo 3DS game called Blastball, a sci-fi football (soccer) game that involves giant mech suits and play a lot like Metroid Prime Hunters
Rather than have players kick a ball around like they do today, they compete in giant mech suits and shoot at the ball from a first-person view!
With two teams of three going at each other, the goal (pun intended) of Blastball
is to get a giant orb into your opponent’s net by blasting at it with a laser gun, using boosts and power-ups gathered while playing.
As if that wasn’t interesting enough, the net gets smaller every time a goal is scored and you can actually attack and disable the mechs on the other team.
The initial fan response to Blastball
at E3 was somewhat muted, but everyone seemed into the intense action after the demonstrations were over. It looks like a fun game.
