After teasing an announcement, Blaster Master Zero and Blaster Master Zero 2 PS4 ports have now been officially announced by Limited Run Games. Previously, the second game was listed on The PlayStation Network, and this makes things official. Both games will release on the PlayStation 4 on June 29, 2020.
While the teaser picture seemed to show both the games bundled together, it turns out that the games will be released separately. Additionally, physical copies of the two games will be released for both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The physical releases will include all DLC on the game cartridge and will be available to preorder on May 29, 2020 at 10am ET.
Additionally, there is a Classic Edition for Blaster Master Zero 2 that will include a poster, the original soundtrack for the game, and a retro cover and cartridge sleeve. This will be available for both the PS4 and Switch.
For those who are more into the music, there will also be a vinyl release of the soundtracks for Blaster Master Zero 1 and 2. It will cost $37.99. It includes a booklet with notes by Ippo Yamada from Inti Creates, as well as a download code for a digital version of the OST.
Finally, there is a grand Collector’s Edition which includes a whole bunch of extra stuff, including posters, certificate, the OSTs, figures of Sophia III and Gaia Sophia, and commemorative non-functioning NES carts. It will cost $129.99.
All the above will be sold starting May 29, 2020 at 10am ET onwards and will be available for open pre-order for four weeks. This means that people won’t need to fight for a limited amount of copies, as there’s no upper limit and it is being made to order.
Blaster Master Zero PS4 will release on June 29, 2020 and is available for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Nintendo 3DS. Blaster Master Zero 2 fires onto the PS4 on the same day as well and is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch and PC.
