Inti Creates previously announced that Dragon Marked for Death has managed to sell 120k copies worldwide. To celebrate that milestone, the team said they were working on a special wallpaper. Well, that wallpaper is available now! You can see a sample of it above, and download different sizes here.
As was announced yesterday, The Empress from Dragon Marked for Death is being added to Blaster Master Zero 2 as a DLC character. She'll be hitting the game on April 20th, 2020, which is the same day Version 3.0.0 is launching as well. You can check out more details on the Empress as well as the Version 3.0.0 in the Inti Creates video above.
During Inti Create's special live-stream, the company announced that Blaster Master Zero II has sold 250k copies worldwide. To celebrate the milestone, the company will be releasing Dragon Marked for Death "Empress" DLC on April 21st, 2020 for $2. Blaster Master Zero II director Satoru Nishizawa shared the following comments on the DLC.
“For the Empress, we took her abilities and gameplay elements from Dragon Marked for Death and remade them so they fit seamlessly into Blaster Master Zero II. We really did whatever we could to recreate her signature attacks. In the top-down segments, we gave her some new moves with the addition of her counterattacks… This really sort of brings it all together for the Empress’ Blaster Master Zero II gameplay.
Now, she doesn’t have quite as many abilities as the last EX character, Copen, so when she comes across a hurdle she can’t clear on her own, hop aboard her special Metal Attacker, the D-ATTACKER, and start exploring. Does the ‘D’ stand for ‘Dragon,’ or ‘Dragostea,’ or…? Anyway, this tank doesn’t just look different, things like aggro indicators, damage display, and more were added to really maximize the Dragon Marked for Death-ness of the whole experience, so I hope you have a great time with the new content.”
Inti Creates will be hosting an English live-stream tonight at 11 PM ET to showcase more footage of the Empress DLC. For now, you can check out the debut trailer for the DLC below (9:57 mark).
Inti Creates hosted the 11th episode of their live-stream series, and they shared a bit of information about Dragon Marked for Death. Since launch, the game has managed to sell 120k units worldwide.

You'll be able to watch the stream on YouTube, Twitch, and Niconico.
Want to know what to expect from this live-stream? Inti Creates shared the following message that gives an outlook on what's coming.
“We decided it was about high time bring back the show so that we can deliver not only the latest information, but special announcements, and more as we try find new ways to communicate with you while we are stuck indoors during this crazy time in the world. Even though this is technically episode #11, this time around, we’ve rebuilt the show from the ground up! We’re still delivering the content you expect from this show, but with a new group of MCs: Diana Garnet (singer of the Dragon Marked for Death theme song, English voice of Joule in the Gunvolt original video animation) and Kenta Tanaka (Bandit in Dragon Marked for Death)!”
The only thing officially confirmed for this 11th episode is a special video message from Dragon Marked for Death producer Yoshifumi Hashimoto of Hakama.
Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu has announced that the company has three new games in the works. It appears an announcement of at least one was supposed to be made at BitSummit, but with that event's cancellation, the company held back news on the game.
While a final decision hasn't been made, Aizu is currently considering different methods of revealing these games. He even teases a Nintendo Direct-style presentation as one of the options.
