March 9th for $9.99 in Europe and North America on the Switch as well as the 3DS.
Damn I absolutely love the fact that they didn't try to bring this into the next gen of gaming with flashy 3D character models but really focused on keeping this in line with the 8-bit original from 1988.
Why would I buy it on the Switch when I have a perfectly fancy 3DS you ask?
Because the Switch comes with two tiny controllers and Blaster Master Zero on the Switch supports two player Co-operative multiplayer!! Not only that but it will also be one of a handful of games that takes advantage of the HD Rumble support, which means you can finally feel it in the palm of your hand when your SOPHIA 3 Battle Tank comes crashing down into the ground from 40 stories up.
