Blitzball was a water sport played by younglings on the planet Langston.[1] In 22 BBY,[2] Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Initiate Mill Alibeth went on a mission to Langston's mining district. There, they witnessed a group of younglings playing the game in a lake while walking through the rubble.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

"There's a reference to a sport called Blitzball played in a local lake. Blitzball is basically underwater hockey played as a minigame in Final Fantasy X. As a former NHL writer, I freaking loved Blitzball and spent hours winning leagues"
―Mike Chen[3]

Blitzball appeared in the 2022 novel Brotherhood, authored by Mike Chen.[1] The game was included as a reference to Blitzball, a minigame from[3] the role-playing video game[4] Final Fantasy X. According to Chen, Blitzball is basically "underwater hockey played as a minigame in Final Fantasy X." Chen included the game due to his past work as a writer for the National Hockey League.[3]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 Brotherhood
  2. Brotherhood is set between the beginning of the Clone Wars and the Battle of Christophsis, as the novel's plot involves Anakin Skywalker becoming a Jedi Knight, a rank he attained between those events. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates both events to 22 BBY, Brotherhood must be set in that year.
