Inti Creates is making Blaster Master Zero 3, the developer announced during 2021’s New Game+ Expo, and fans won’t have long to wait for it either. Blaster Master Zero 3 releases July 29 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, though pre-orders aren’t open just yet.
Blaster Master Zero 3 follows series hero Jason once more in his final fight against the mutant threat. This time, Jason travels back to the series’ roots, to the planet Sophia, to rescue Eve, his co-pilot and the series’ other protagonist.
It’s the most intense Blaster Master yet, Inti Creates said in the announcement trailer. While Blaster Master Zero 3 retains the series’ traditional switch between side-scrolling action and top-down shootouts, there’s a twist this time. Jason uses the Vision Reversal Visor to switch between dimensions and bring the intergalactic fight to a dramatic close at last.
Blaster Master Zero originally launched for the 3DS and Switch back in 2017, with Blaster Master Zero 2 releasing in 2019. Both games have found their way on to PC and PlayStation 4 after their initial release, so it appears this will be the first time a game in the most recent series will launch on all three platforms at once.
