Inti Creates has revealed that Blaster Master Zero has been downloaded 80,000 times from the Nintendo Switch eShop.

The title took 35 people six months to develop, and is based on the much-loved NES original. Inti Creates did not state if it was happy with the commercial performance of the game, and sales figures for the 3DS eShop version have not been revealed.

Inti Creates is becoming something of an old hand when it comes to reimagining past classics; it assisted in the production of Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 and is currently working on Bloodstained, considered by Castlevania fans to be the true heir to that esteemed series.
