Blaster Master Zero Has Sold Over 80,000 Copies

Launching six days after the Nintendo Switch released, Blaster Master Zero has sold over 80,000 copies via the eShop. It retails for $9.99 and is a remake of the original that appeared on the NES back in 1988.

Developed by Inti Creates, the team behind Mega Man 9 & 10, Blaster Master Zero was worked on by a team of 35 people over the course of 6 months. The company revealed that as of May 10, 2017 the title had been downloaded over 80,000 times. It’s unclear if the company considers that to be a success or a disappointment, but we imagine they wouldn’t be sharing this news if it was negative.

We’ve been having a great time with the game and it’s one of our favorite digital downloads for the Switch. You can read our full review right here.

  • I hope this continues to sell well! I’d love to see more retro remakes from the NES and SNES era come to the Nintendo Switch.

      Same here. I’ve written extensively about Blaster Master, but what if they took on some of the other SunSoft games, like “Journey to Silius?” Imagine that as a remake!

      • For sure. The music in Journey to Silius is so amazing. Other games like Uncle Fester’s Quest (which is hard as nails) and Gremlins 2 would be great candidates. Of course Batman is another fantastic choice, but with licensing I doubt that would ever happen.

          I forgot they did Gremlins 2. Batman is one of my favorite NES games of all time. I have a soft spot for Fester’s Quest…up until I get to the last level, when everything gets overly difficult. I think Inti Creates does fantastic work, so who knows?
