Blaster Master Zero Kicking Off a String of Inti Creates PC Releases in June
Inti Creates plans to support PC more going forward and are kicking things off on Steam on June 14 with a port of Blaster Master Zero.
During Momocon 2019, Japanese developer Inti Creates announced its plans to bring over its strong library of platformers to PC. They’ve created some awesome titles like Dragon: Marked for Death, the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, and more in recent years. That being said, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and Gal*Gun VR are its only major self-published titles that have made their way to PC at launch, so it makes sense that Inti Creates would want to expand on Steam. The first title they are bringing over to Steam on June 14 is Blaster Master Zero, as revealed in the trailer below.
When it released in 2017, Blaster Master Zero was one of the first major indie games on Nintendo Switch. This, alongside the fact that it was a great game based on a beloved IP, allowed it to find great success. It also released on 3DS and even received a string of DLC characters based on other indie games. Earlier this year, it even received a Nintendo Switch exclusive sequel in Blaster Master Zero 2. It is certainly one of Inti Creates’ primary series currently, making Blaster Master Zero a good game for them to start with on PC.
Blaster Master Zero is set to hit PC on June 14 for $9.99 in North America, Europe, and Japan, and will even be available at a 10% discount for those that decide to pick it up right at launch. This PC port will also serve as also a “ultimate edition” of sorts for the game as it will include all DLC characters. This means Gunvolt from Azure Striker Gunvolt, Ekoro from Gal*Gun Double Peace, Shantae from the Shantae series, and Shovel Knight from Yacht Club Games’ wildly successful indie game of the same name will all be included.
If you haven’t tried this Inti Creates game yet, the PC release seems like it will be a good time to jump in. Some PC screenshots were released to commemorate this announcement and all of it can be seen below. Blaster Master Zero is currently available for 3DS and Nintendo Switch and will be the first of a new string of Inti Creates titles to come to PC on June 14.
