Blaster Master Zero III will come riding onto Xbox One in July


At the start of March, we received wicked news that Blaster Master Zero III was currently in development, and getting set to bring its interstellar action to PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Publisher Inti Creates has now confirmed that this climactic chapter will also release on Xbox One alongside its aforementioned brethren on July 29.

This third and final entry in the resurrected retro franchise will see protagonist Jason get behind the wheel of the G-SOPHIASV battle tank one last time, going all-out in a do-or-die mission to save the life of his dear friend Eve. The new title will see the action return to the planet Sophia, as well as spanning several galaxies and dimensions. It sounds like an epic, and a great way to cap off a very enjoyable trilogy.

In Japan, Inti Creates will also release the Blaster Master Zero Trilogy: MetaFight Chronicle, which will include all three titles in the series, alongside their respective DLC. In addition, MetaFight Chronicle will feature newly recorded dialogue for the first two titles in the series. Unfortunately, there has yet to be any confirmation that this compilation will be headed west at any point.
