Blaster Master Zero is a reimagining of the original 1988 Blaster Master for the Nintendo Entertainment System, developed by Inti Creates for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch.



There are 3 modes of the gameplay; the tank, traveling on-foot and top-down sections. The tank is most powerful, but the player regularly needs to leave the tank to access other parts of the map. The caves found while on foot transition into a top-down section. The player can encounter bosses in these sections.
