Fans of the Switch and 3DS are proving that small studios can make a huge dent, with Inti Creates announcing that Blaster Master Zero has sold more than 100,000 copies across both systems.

The action-platformer has proved a strong hit, recreating the original Blaster Master that was released for NES back in 1988. This news comes only a few months after Inti Creates announced that the game had sold over 80,000 copies worldwide, with commemorative wallpaper released to celebrate. This time around the company has celebrated the milestone with another free special wallpaper, which can be downloaded here.

Due to the success of the game WayForward's Shantae joined the fight on the 6th July, with Yacht Cub Games’ Shovel Knight being added today (3rd August). The character is free to download for the first 2 weeks, but after that a purchase will need to be made.
