Due out on July 29.

Inti Creates has released new information and screenshots for Blaster Master Zero III introducing returning characters Leibniz and Kanna, SF Dungeons, and the first three stages.

Get the details below.

■ Familiar Faces Make their Return for Blaster Master Zero III

Leibniz
Demon on the Sidelines

“I really couldn’t care less who breaks you. I just wanna be there to see the spectacle when it goes down.”

Blaster Master Zero III

He is the pilot of the Metal Attacker “GARUDA.” Leibniz was bested by the mutants during his own battle against them, and as a result his home planet was destroyed and his partner was lost forever.

Ever since his first encounter with Jason and Eve, he treated them as enemies, relentlessly pursuing and attacking them. After the events in Area Ω, his mind began to change, and he went so far as to defend the Earth from another mutant assault. However, he appears to regret this decision, telling Jason that “If I knew it would end up that way, I never would have gone.”

Kanna
Head of Daisies, Heart of Oak

“Awww yeah, are you ready~? It’s Kanna time, baby!!”

She is the pilot of the Metal Attacker “EIR.” Kanna lives alongside her support droid, Kenwood, in the hyper-strange environment of the planet Stranga. It’s like, totally bonkers, but Kanna appears in this game for some reason.

■ New Areas are Ready to be Explored in Blaster Master Zero III

In addition to some of the areas that Jason will traverse in his travels throughout Blaster Master Zero III, we have the challenging new SF (Sophia Force) Dungeons to showcase!

Challenge the SF Dungeons!

You’ll discover Sophia Force bases scattered all across the planet. Infiltrate these to find useful support items such as a “Life Energy Guard” that temporarily protects Jason and G-SOPHIA from damage.

—Life Energy Guard β

A shield that protects G-SOPHIA’s life from dropping when it takes damage.

—Spin Balancer

Reduces the amount of energy used when performing a Spin Dash.

Sophia’s cutting-edge anti-mutant robot soldiers are waiting inside the bases to to ambush Jason. If he enters unprepared, he can easily take more damage than the shields he picks up can handle!

SF dungeons are made up of multiple floors. If Jason runs out of life inside, he’ll have to retry from the entrance.

When Jason reaches the item storage on each floor, Fred will create a wormhole for Jason to exit through. Feel free to leave if you’ve had enough, but if you keep going, you may find even more items! Consider the risks and rewards, and make the call!

Dimensional ruptures appear even in SF bases.

Will you battle your way through normal space, where deadly robots await you? Or will you challenge the unknown in super-dimensional space? The choice is yours!
