About Blaster Master Zero

For those unfamiliar, Blaster Master Zero was a remake of the classic SUNSOFT game, as well as a reboot into a new series! Starring young science genius Jason Frudnick aboard the Metal Attacker SOPHIA-III, his trusty frog (?) Fred, and the mysterious Eve, it quickly found an audience of both fans of the original and players brand new to the franchise.

In 2019, Blaster Master Zero 2 saw Jason launch into outer space on a journey across dimensions, directly following Blaster Master Zero’s story. Jason encountered many new faces, including the pilots of other Metal Attackers and their partners, greatly expanding the Blaster Master cast and universe.

Jason’s thrilling saga came to an exciting climax in Blaster Master Zero 3, as the worlds of “Blaster Master” and the original Japanese “Chou Wakusei Senki Metafight” collided head-first on the planet Sophia! Jason would encounter friend and foe, both old and new, on the planet which served as the stage for the original “Metafight” game that gave birth to the series. I hope all the fans out there have gotten a chance to play it!

Check out the initial reveal trailer here!

Today we have a sneak peek at the opening sequence to the game and introductions for the  main characters! Enjoy!

Blaster Master Zero 3’s Opening Sequence!

In Blaster Master Zero 2, after a long and
perilous journey through space, Jason and Eve
finally made it to the planet Sophia.

―――However, a new crisis was already
there lying in wait for them.

They were attacked by Sophia’s army, the Sophia
Force, and their Interplanetary All-Terrain Battle
Tank “G-SOPHIA SV” was rendered inoperable.

Jason, Eve, and Fred were then captured and
immediately separated from each other.

“Why did they do this to us…?”

Before Jason could find any answers,
the Sophia Force base where he and the others
were being held captive suddenly fell into chaos,
allowing him to escape and recover G-SOPHIA SV.

The fate of Jason and Eve,
and the fate of planet Sophia…
all revolve around the threat of the mutant scourge.

But now, an interdimensional reversal of fate is beginning…

Meet the main characters from Blaster Master Zero 3!

Young Man Confronting a “Reversal” of Fate


“G-SOPHIA SV and I will never back down from our fight to save Eve!”

Jason is a young man who has battled against the mutant scourge aboard the battle tanks SOPHIA III, SOPHIA ZERO, and G-SOPHIA.

His intergalactic journey to save his partner Eve, who had been corrupted by mutant cells, at long last brought him to the planet Sophia, where he was captured by the planet’s military, the Sophia Force.

After taking advantage of a chaotic situation, he managed to escape and reclaim his new tank, G-SOPHIA SV.

He now finds himself desperately searching the planet Sophia for Eve, who has gone missing.

Partner Who Disappeared Into Super-Dimensional Space


“Don’t worry…I found the answer I needed.”

Eve is a young woman who crossed paths with Jason on Earth.

She is the support droid for the battle tank SOPHIA III, and she and Jason formed a deep bond during their battles against the mutants on Earth.

However, Eve became corrupted with mutant cells during their battles, and was in grave danger.

She overcame her corruption after battling the mutants in super-dimensional space, but after getting captured upon her arrival to Sophia, her whereabouts are
now unknown.

Mysterious Creature with a Shiny Metallic Body


“Ribbit ribbit!”

Fred was originally created to be the support drone (aka Support Animal) for the SOPHIA III battle tank, but has since formed a very deep bond with Eve and Jason after their journey through space togetherand their battles against the mutants.

He has the ability to create wormholes, which supports Jason and G-SOPHIA SV in their searches in many ways.

Supeme Evolution of the Metal Attacker


Official Name: “EARTH MA-001 SV GAIA-SOPHIA SV”

Based on the designs for SOPHIA III and SOPHIA ZERO, G-SOPHIA SV is a new interplanetary all-terrain battle tank (Metal Attacker) co-developed by Jason and Eve during their time on Earth.

It comes equipped with the Gaia System, which converts impacts to the vehicle’s chassis into energy.

The original G-SOPHIA parts that were destroyed during their journey through space were replaced with parts from the Metal Attacker ANDREIA that Eve had a fateful encounter with in Area Ω.

This refurbished version was given the codename “SV”, which stands for “Supreme Vehicle”.

Blaster Master Zero 2 Steam Release Celebrated With Design Doc Reveals

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.

Blaster Master Zero Makes Its Steam debut!

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!
