Blaster Master Zero to Hit 3DS in Spring 2017!
Blaster Master is a wonderful blast from the past, but it’s time for that ship to not necessarily sail, but maybe make some room for a new ship. An updated ship with bigger and better things. We’re talking about Blaster Master Zero, of course! What is now considered a classic NES game, will serve as the base for the upcoming Blaster Master Zero, which is due out in the Spring of 2017, and will be available in the 3DS eShop.
“Using the original Blaster Master game as a base, we are setting out to create a fully 8-bit experience in a way that both hearkens back to the golden age of the NES and uses the current generation hardware to optimize and power up the game for the players of today.”
The game is going to feature a plethora of new things, including new bosses, new weapons, new levels, better gameplay, improved mechanics…honestly, the list can go on, but you get the point. This game is basically going to be a fully upgraded version of its former self and we are all winners because of it. After acquiring the license for the game from Sunsoft, Inti Creates are the ones with the plan, and they really seem pumped. “Using the original Blaster Master game as a base, we are setting out to create a fully 8-bit experience in a way that both hearkens back to the golden age of the NES and uses the current generation hardware to optimize and power up the game for the players of today,” they stated in their announcement.
The story will take place several hundred years in the future, long after an ice age had destroyed most of the planet’s surface and forced what was left of humanity underground. Now, after having been able to survive on the surface again, humanity is thriving. A young robotic engineer named Jason Frudnick has stumbled across a creature that does not exist. Not according to records, at least. He begins to study it and even names it “Fred”. One day, however, Fred escapes, and Jason sets out on a crazy adventure to bring him back. Along his journey, he encounters the underground world humanity had once called home, and happens upon a beckoning SOPHIA 3rd.
