DEBRIEF: BLASTER MASTER™ AVAILABLE NOW ON WII VIRTUAL CONSOLE
Redding, CA – December 14, 2009 – Sunsoft, a division of SUNCORPORATION (JASDAQ: 6736), has today announced that Blaster Master is available in the United States on the Wii Virtual Console.
Originally titled Meta Fight in Japan, this groundbreaking game was given a story makeover and released in 1988 as Blaster Master™ here in the United States. It received strong critical acclaim and fan raves almost from the moment it hit these shores.
Blaster Master™ is still often listed on magazine and online charts as one of the top 25 NES games ever created. The sublime blend of side-scrolling shooting/platforming mixed with overhead perspective action/shooting areas is just as addictive now as it was then. The smorgasbord of old-school entertainment can be had for a mere 500 Wii points.
Fans are encouraged to improve their skills so they can finish this supreme test of gaming skill to allow them to take part in a coming promotion that will test their skill for prizes.
