Update (Tue 26th May, 2020 01:30 BST): As suspected, Limited Run Games will be releasing physical versions of Blaster Master Zero and Blaster Master Zero 2 on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Pre-orders will open for four weeks starting on 29th May.
There'll be the option of a standard edition or classic edition ($54.99) for each game, or a collector's edition ($129.99) containing both titles. Whatever you decide to get, all of the DLC will be included on the cart.
The classic edition of Blaster Master Zero comes with a reversible poster, original game soundtrack, and a retro cartridge-sleeve to fit your game case. The classic edition of Blaster Master Zero 2 is much the same - including a reversible poster, original game soundtrack, and a retro cartridge-sleeve to fit your game case.
The "huge" collector's edition contains a certificate of authenticity, SOPHIA III and Gaia-SOPHIA metal tanks, the original soundtracks, reversible posters, commemorative non-functioning NES cartridges and more. Take a look below:
And last of all is a standalone soundtrack, which comes with an autographed poster by Ippo Yamada. This will be made available on 29th May for $37.99. For additional info, check out the LRG Twitter page.
Original Story (Sat 23rd May, 2020 10:30 BST): One classic game that's made a comeback during the Switch generation is Blaster Master, thanks to the release of Blaster Master Zero and Blaster Master Zero 2. We loved both entries in our reviews, and while we'd often tell you to go and play them right away if you haven't already, in this case we're going to advise you hold off just a little longer.
You see, the physical specialist Limited Run Games recently took to Twitter to tease some sort of Blaster Master announcement for next Monday. Take a look below:
The artwork appears to be based on the Zero entries, so we're guessing it'll be some sort of physical release tied to either one or both of these games. A lot of fans are also requesting a double pack as well. Whatever the announcement is, we just hope it involves the Nintendo Switch.
