Sunsoft released Blaster Master: Enemy Below in 1998, five years after Blaster Master 2, known simply as Metafight EX in Japan. This adventure runs very similar to Blaster Master in terms of gameplay, but adds in a password option. Jason gets access to new abilities and items, and even Sophia 3rd gets a slight upgrade (to NORA MA-02) and access to new technology.
Jason is approached by a scientist, who informs him that they've been experimenting with tissue samples from the original Plutonium Boss. The experiments, of course, are now running amok and it's up to Jason to stop them.
Enemy Below operates nearly identically to the original Blaster Master. However, new items enable new options. Additionally, Jason will need to collect a Key in each area to access the Chamber containing the boss.
This mode is enhanced with items that allow Sophia 3rd to jump higher, and give Jason's Gun an extra boost. Jason's health is completely restored when hopping into his faithful tank.
Jason's Gun has a maximum of 3 levels here, which can be increased, but his capabilities remain otherwise more or less unchanged. His Grenades pack a mean punch and are far stronger than the gun, but cannot be rapidly thrown and have a smaller blast radius. Jason also cannot move diagonally anymore.
Jason uses the Power and Gun Capsules for himself, and Hover for Sophia 3rd.
