Blaster Master Zero 2 gets Gunvolt protagonist Copen as DLC character

Blaster Master Zero 2 Copen DLC character Gunvolt

Blaster Master Zero 2 was revealed and launched out of nowhere during a Nintendo Nindies Showcase event back in March of this year. The indie tank-blasting sequel didn’t make major waves, but it was still an incredible game for fans of the series. The previous game had some beefy replayability thanks to added EX characters that switched up the gameplay and progression. Now, fans of Blaster Master Zero 2 can look forward to the first EX character for that game being introduced soon, in the form of Gunvolt character Copen.

Appearing in the Mega Man Zero-inspired Gunvolt¬†game series as the Proto Man-style rival of main hero Gunvolt, Copen serves as the protagonist of the latest entry in the series, Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX.¬†All of these games are developed by Into Creates, so it doesn’t come as a huge surprise to see Copen make the jump over to Blaster Master Zero 2.

What is surprising, though, is just how much unique content is packed into this new character update. Copen retains practically all of his abilities and EX Weapons from the Gunvolt series, including his floating machine gun attack and his devastating ultimate attack. He starts levels outside of his tank, which is an interesting change, but when he does finally climb into a vehicle you’ll notice it has a completely different design from the regular tank in the game.

The Copen DLC for Blaster Master Zero 2 is currently in development and has no release window yet.
