Ready to witness the sickness of a brand new street balling experience? Lethal League Blaze is here and today it is launching on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, along with a release on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, Lethal League Blaze from Team Reptile sees you partaking in a bit of a new ball game – one which is high speed, intense, and has been deemed highly illegal by the ruling bodies of Shine City.
This ball game is unlike any you would have previously taken in, making American Football like tame and rugby look like a sport for the weak. See, the goal in Lethal League Blaze is to work your magic with the ball in order to beat down your opponents, utilising angles, special moves and extremely violent plays to see yourself crowned Lethal League champ. Winning is everything in Lethal League Blaze – there is no room for a loser.
But for every strike that takes place, the speed of the action in Lethal League Blaze increases, with the ball fast travelling at unprecedented speeds as you tag it to your colour and battle it out. With a single player option holding things together, and an online matchmaking mode which seems perfect for the craziness this brings, the £16.74 asking price for Lethal League Blaze fast becomes a non-issue.
It helps that there are a whole host of secrets and unlockable extras to enjoy too, and so when you’ve had enough of the madness of the fight, have blasted through the Arcade Mode and have nailed that of the Story, you’ll quite possibly want to go through the whole thing again with a different playstyle or game mode. And that’s all without mentioning the rather wicked set of tunes that help push Lethal League Blaze into the mainstream.
- Up to 4 players: Play locally AND online with up to 4 players.
- Easy to pick up, hard to master gameplay: Start off simply hitting the ball. Then use the whole moveset and finish up with Parry mindgames.
- Tons of unlockable extras and secrets: Unlock characters and their outfits as you play. New modes and stages are in there too and even the soundtrack can be unlocked to play at leisure.
- Play on your own: Step up to the plate by yourself and beat a series of opponents in the Arcade Mode to reach the beat-blasting bossfight or play the event-based Story Mode.
- Modes and options: Pick your preferred style of play like with HP, one-shot kill or points. And then there are game modes like Strikers, using goals, and something called Lethal Volley…
- Wicked Tracks: A Breakbeat, Hip-Hop and House soundtrack featuring the likes of Hideki Naganuma, Frank Klepacki, Pixelord, Bignic and of course Klaus Veen.
Sound familiar? It may well be seeing as the original Lethal League dropped onto Xbox One back in 2017 you can check out our review of that right here. Just remember though, this is Blaze, and it could well be an altogether different experience.

The usual download of Lethal League Blaze can be actioned by heading over to the Xbox Store for Xbox One, the PlayStation Store if you prefer the PS4 way of life, or that of the good old Nintendo eShop for Switch players. We certainly won’t judge on your preferred option!
Want to get an overview of what Lethal League Blaze on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch plays out like? You’ll want to take in the trailer below – just prepare yourself for those funky fresh beats.
Lethal League Blaze is an intense, high speed ball game, with unique characters, outta sight sounds and none of that weak shit. In Shine City, the anti-gravity ball game has long been illegal. The group who kept playing was dubbed the Lethal League. Even now, with their sport pushed underground, players and crews compete in the League for challenge and respect. In the game, the goal is to beat your opponents with the ball. You can manipulate the ball to get the perfect angle and use your character’s special moves to surprise them. But every strike speeds up the ball or even doubles its speed, up to shatteringly extreme velocities. You can tag the ball to your color, but on those high speeds the tables are quickly turned. You can play locally with friends and foes, by yourself in the singleplayer modes or battle it out online!
