Limited Run Games has teased a limited physical bundle of Inti Creates’ Blaster Master Zero and Blaster Master Zero 2, and more information is set to be announced on Monday, May 25, 2020. The illustration released shows Eve from both her first and second game appearances, as well as Sophia-III and G-Sophia, the tanks from the two games.
The series is a reimagining of the original Sunsoft sidescrolling and top-down hybrid adventure game, incorporating both story elements of the American localization with lore elements of the Japanese version of the game, Metafight. The first game takes place on Earth in a subterranean region, where our protagonist Jason finds a tank called Sophia-III. Meanwhile, the sequel takes place soon after the end of the first game and is set across different planets in space.
While both games were released as digital-only games on the Nintendo Switch at first, the games were later released on PC. Recently, a PlayStation Network listing for the second game was also found, so it’s currently unknown if the limited physical bundle will simply be for Nintendo Switch or include a PlayStation 4 version as well.
Blaster Master Zero is available for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Nintendo 3DS. Blaster Master Zero 2 is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch and PC.
