Blaster Master Zero will release on the Nintendo 3DS eshop in Spring 2017 according to an announcement by Inti Creates. The company acquired the license to the original game from Sunsoft and has been working on remastering and expanding it, adding new levels, enemies, etc.
This is exciting news. I remember playing the NES Blaster Master as a kid, and having the damnedest time controlling the vehicle (my Mega Man skills were on point, but outside of that and Bionic Commando, I cannot vouch for my fine motor control as a six-eight year old kid). It’ll be good to dig into Zero, see what I can make of it now that I’m in my 30's, and likely even worse at control than I used to be. >.<
