Things have been quiet here on the Inti blog for some time now, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! In fact, it’s -because- things have been so busy that the blog has unfortunately been quiet, but I think it’s about time to end that streak.
Our most recent game release was the Steam version of Blaster Master Zero 2 , and in the days that lead up to and followed the release we’ve been showcasing never-before-seen design documents and trivia that covers all of the game’s characters (and more)! Rather than make you good folks dig through our Twitter feed for everything, we decided that we’d put them all in one place for your viewing pleasure! We hope you enjoy all the art and commentary from director Nishizawa, designer Suzuki, and illustrator Natsume.
During our panel at Momocon 2019, we revealed for the first time that Blaster Master Zero is coming to Steam on June 14, 2019 in North America, Japan, and Europe!
After acquiring the license to the legendary NES classic Blaster Master from Sunsoft, we set out to create a new game that both pays homage to the original and takes the gameplay to the next level with numerous new and improved gameplay features added.
The graphics for the game use the original Blaster Master at a starting point to create pixel art that both appeals to a modern audience and harkens back to the glory days of the NES.
With new bosses to fight, new areas to explore, and a host of new features and upgrades, Blaster Master Zero is a fresh new blasting experience for newcomers and series veterans alike!
All DLC characters released on the Nintendo Switch and 3DS versions of the game will be available for the Steam version. Blast your way through mutant hordes as Gunvolt (Azure Striker Gunvolt, Ekoro (Gal*Gun Double Peace), Shantae (Shantae series) and Shovel Knight (Shovel Knight series).
Blaster Master Zero starts the story over again from “zero”!
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 had never seen before. No records of this mysterious creature could be found, so Jason gave it the name “Fred” and took it to his lab to begin closely observing it.
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.
With his curiosity in this incredibly high tech vehicle piqued, Jason hopped abroad SOPHIA III and began his adventure in the vast subterranean world in search of Fred.
Mutant scum never learn! Blaster Master is back!
