    This makes me happy in the pants.

    Edit: Turns out its another remake, which is cool I guess. If it does well they might make a new one.

    The trailer almost made me not want it until the water stage with Jason in the water and then SOPHIA with a grappling hook!

    Source? All the sites I'm checking says it's a brand new, Wii-exclusive sequel, not a remake.

    Remake or not, I don't care. I love Blaster Master so much that I will force myself to play through it regardless. It was easily the most innovative NES game ever, and it had some amazing gameplay to back it up.

    EDIT after watching the trailer:
    Is it just me or is the screen zoomed in way more than in the original? Maybe it's because I'm used to the tank being super small on my DS screen. Not a big deal either way. God damn I cannot wait until tomorrow.

    This is a must buy for me. Very welcomed as there are not enough good 2D shooters these days, so I highly appreciate this.

    Awesome!

    Oh nice.
    I think the last Blaster Master was the first try at the 3D world with the game franchise but it was interesting at least.

    This re-imaging should be rather fun.
    I can't wait to give it a try. :3
