Free DLC for Blaster Master Zero Includes Hard Mode, New Characters

Let some of Inti Creates stars help you blast powered-up mutants.

The war against the mutants never ends in Blaster Master Zero, and now you can recruit some new soldiers through DLC.

The studio behind Blaster Master Zero, Inti Creates, outlined the new content available for the Nintendo Switch / Nintendo 3DS side-scroller through a trailer distributed yesterday. First up is "Destroyer Mode," which offers powered-up mutants for you to test your skills against. Should be a good challenge for anyone who's already completed the initial journey. Look for it on May 4.

Also of note: You can play through the game as Gunvolt (from Azure Striker Gunvolt) and Ekoro from Gal Gun and Mighty Gunvolt.

Both characters use their trademark powers to defeat enemies. Gunvolt sticks foes with miniature lightning rods, then unleashes a torrent of electricity. Ekoro uses love and sunshine to bring her foes to ruin.

Gunvolt is free to download from May 4 through 17. After that, he costs $1.99 USD to download. Ekoro is likewise free to download from June 1 through 14, and costs $1.99 USD after the grace period.
