One day, a young man named Jason Frudnick, known for being a genius in the field of robotic engineering, discovered a strange creature that he has never seen before.

Shortly after that, an accident occurred in the lab and Fred managed to escape.Fred jumped into a hole that seemingly appeared out of nowhere.Jason followed, and before he knew it, he found himself in a cave where the battle vehicle “SOPHIA III” awaited him.

    Here’s one thing I can’t find anywhere: does the 3DS version actually use 3D or is it a 2D only title?

    • NoneMoreNegative

      I was wondering the same thing. The 3DS eShop shows 2D screenshots, and nary a mention of 3D anywhere. I think the answer, most unfortunately, is no.

    Thanks for this amazing remake! Loved the original Blaster Master. I just beat the 3DS version today. Now that I Unlimited Mode unlocked now I will have to replay it again sometime. Only thing that was disappointing is that the game was not playable in 3D. Hope you do an original sequel to this game. So we can ignore all the other crappy sequels. Would be fun to play on other planets.
