Blaster Master Zero has sold 80,000 copies on Switch so far; other details

Posted on May 12, 2017 by (@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS eShop, News, Switch eShop

At a recent event in Tokyo, Inti Creates shared some info on the sales and development process on Blaster Master Zero. The Switch version of the game was in development for six months (alongside the 3DS version) and the development team consisted of 35 people. To date, the Switch version has been downloaded 80,000 times.

While this may not sound all that impressive, given that Inti Creates were willing to publicly share this number, they must be satisfied with the game’s sales so far.

    this looks like a failure then, 80.000 in todays sales is nothing.

      Are you insane? Do you know anything about sales? The reason why games have to sell big is because they have to cover marketing expenses. However, indies and even physical games that don’t have huge marketing campaigns don’t need to sell millions at all.

      I’d say this was as good as they could hope, 80k for a game that wasn’t even known to exist until the day it launched on a brand new console with a 3 mil userbase. This game doesn’t need to do Mario Kart sales to earn back the cost.

      Lol, never change

    This article only mentions the Switch version. We still don’t know how much the 3DS version sold.

    Not that bad for an indie game tbh

    • jimmy

      Is it considered indie since its from Blastermaster, a known Sunsoft game?

      • hi v3.0

        It’s considered indie because it was made by an indie studio

  • MoYeung

    Did you try the demo?

    This is good. I remember when they was celebrating 90k, then 100k 110k… for Azure Striker 1, monthly. The game is out for just 2 months til now. Will keep selling.

    I hope they release a physical version soon, like Azure Striker did!

    I’m not a sales analyst, but the number doesn’t sound that bad. 100k plus with 3DS sales, probably.

  • R.Z.

  • Dilly
