Blaster Master: Enemy Below, a remixed port of the original Blaster Master, was released on the Nintendo eShop in Japan late last year. That was a Game Boy Color title. Soon, the original NES/Famicom game will be available as well.


Blaster Master—or Chô Wakusei Senki Meta Fight as it’s called in Japan—will be released for the 3DS Virtual Console in Japan on September 5th.


The one main difference between the American and Japanese version of Blaster Master is that Meta Fight has a completely different story.
