Inti Creates just wrapped up another live stream, and debuted the first English gameplay from Blaster Master Zero. We have the recording below.

Earlier today, Inti Creates hosted a new live stream for its Japanese audience. Blaster Master Zero, revealed for 3DS back in November, had its very first footage shown. Get a look at the recorded gameplay (which includes the opening movie).

Inti Creates has just announced Blaster Master Zero, a new entry in the Blaster Master franchise coming to the 3DS eShop in Spring 2017. The news was shared during the company’s Anniversary Fan Festa event in Japan.

According to a blog post, the rights for the original Blaster Master on NES were obtained from Sunsoft. After this, the team began working on the latest title in the franchise.

Here’s what Inti Creates is saying about Blaster Master Zero thus far:

“Using the original Blaster Master game as a base, we are setting out to create a fully 8-bit experience in a way that both hearkens back to the golden age of the NES and uses the current generation hardware to optimize and power up the game for the players of today. This of course includes new areas and bosses, and new gameplay elements such as extra sub-weapons, improved gameplay when battling outside of your SOPHIA 3rd tank, a more robust scenario, refined and expanded exploration mechanics, and more.”
