Blaster Master Zero

Blaster Master Zero introduced a new update last week. With the addition of the EX Character Mode stemming from version 1.2, Inti Creates is letting players experience the game with brand new characters. Each one will have new abilities and weapons.

Gunvolt from the Azure Striker Gunvolt series is the first character to be made available. He’ll be free until May 17. After that, you’ll need to fork over $2 for the character.

If you’ve yet to purchase Blaster Master Zero on Switch, you can obtain the DLC regardless. Simply visit the game’s eShop listing and scroll down to the “Downloadable Content” area. Select “EX Character Gunvolt”, and then the “Free Download” button. That’s it! Then if you decide to pick up Blaster Master Zero later on, Gunvolt will be available.

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.

Here’s an overview of the new modes:

During a live stream hosted earlier today, Inti Creates showed off upcoming Blaster Master Zero DLC with a first look at Gunvolt. We’ve posted the recording below.

Inti Creates has big plans in store for this year’s BitSummit. The company said today that it will not only reveal plans for Blaster Master Zero’s DLC, but also reveal two new games. It’s unclear if the unannounced titles will be on Nintendo platforms, though it’s certainly a possibility.

BitSummit will take place between May 20 and May 21. It will be held at the Miyako Messe in Kyoto.

Blaster Master Zero was reportedly going to receive an update on March 16. Well, it’s already tomorrow in Japan and version 1.1 is now live.

The only relevant note about this update is that it adds support for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. To receive this patch you just need to launch the game while being connected to the Internet. And of course, you can check which version of Blaster Master Zero are you playing by looking below the game title in the title screen.

Blaster Master Zero won’t just be on Switch. The 3DS is seeing a simultaneous release as well.
