Free Update for Blaster Master Zero Adds New Modes and DLC Characters

Inti Creates announced on the official site blog that they have released an update for Blaster Master Zero which is accessible for both the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS. Version 1.2, as it is called, will add downloadable character who will be free for a limited time as well as two new challenger modes and settings. For those new to the game, there is a free demo available in the eShop to try it as well! There will be two stages for choosing and includes local multiplayer capability. For more information on the rest of the update, here are the details:

  • Destroyer Mode
    • In Version 1.2, the all new Destroyer Mode, a super difficult “hard mode” that you can access after clearing the game, has been added! In this mode, it calls for you to make the right call at every turn and make use of your entire arsenal if you want to have a chance at defeating these powered up mutants.
  • EX Character Mode
    • Version 1.2 also comes with EX Character Mode, which allows you to play through the entire game as one of many brand new DLC characters that will be available. These characters aren’t just skins, though! They have their own set of abilities and weapons that create a gameplay experience completely different from that of the main protagonist, Jason.
  • DLC Characters
    • Every time a new character gets released for EX Character Mode, you will be able to download that character for FREE for a two week period following the release of the character! It’s the perfect chance to experience the game in a whole new way with beloved characters from a wide range of IPs!
      • Ekoro – The “elite” angel you remember from Mighty Gunvolt and the Gal*Gun series returns as a playable character! Take control of her chargeable, dual-wielding “Desert Angel” guns and other angelic weaponry and give those mutants a taste of your love.
      • Gunvolt – The main protagonist from the Azure Striker Gunvolt series strikes into the fray as a playable character! With Gunvolt’s septimal power of electricity, take control his “Flashfield” and “Prevasion” abilities and give those mutant baddies the shock of a lifetime!

Yes, the last one was indeed read correctly. For a limited time, DLC characters Gunvolt (May 4th – May 17th) and Ekoro (June 1st – June 14th) are making a cameo in Blaster Master Zero for absolutely no charge. Following the promotion, each character will be available for $1.99 in the eShop. All of the content above is now available for the Nintendo Switch and 3DS.
