At BitSummit a couple of weeks ago, Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu hosted a special stage show. It was here where Mighty Gunvolt Burst and Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack on Switch were officially revealed. Before the two announcements were made, Aizu was able to talk about how Blaster Master Zero came to be.
Sunsoft originally reached out to Inti Creates about the remake. However, the company was pretty busy at the time, and only said that they’d think about it.

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.
