Blaster Master coming to Wiiware

Holy wow. Remember this game? You were some kid named Jason with a frog. The frog turns into a monster and then disappears and you follow the frog in a battle tank called Sofia the Third (WTF, right?). Well, the game has been remade and is coming to Wiiware. All of the goodness is there including the ability to hop out of your tank for overhead combat. All I remember is that this was hard as heck when I was a kid and I don’t think I ever finished it.

Here’s a fairly cool play through of the game and this lets you play it online, just so you can whet your appetite for 8-bit action.

I also remember that my buddy Rick finished the game way back when. He was always better at the NES than I was.
