Blaster Master Zero 3 was announced yesterday at the New Game+ Expo. This title is the third and final entry in the Blaster Master Zero series. With it comes the climax of this intergalactic saga. The game is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC (Steam and Epic Games store). Inti Creates and Sunsoft are set to release it on July 29th at a price of $14.99. Here is the announcement trailer:
Jason, the protagonist of the franchise, travels to the planet Sophia, where the whole mess began. His ultimate goal is to save the heroine, Eve. How that unfolds remains to be seen. Players will have to wait several more months for the conclusion of the story, when the final chapter of the Blaster Master Zero trilogy arrives this summer.
The series fondly pays homage to the original Blaster Master games of the retro era, with its pixelated graphics and nostalgic soundtrack. The original Blaster Master game on the NES was released in North America back in November of 1988. Gamers in Europe at the time had to wait several more years until it released there in April of 1991. It was known for its unforgiving difficulty, but it was a pretty cool game nonetheless. It borrowed a number ideas from another game that launched the previous year, called Robot Warrior (aka Bomber King in Japan). These ranged from gameplay elements, to enemies and even bosses.
