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.
