Finally, after years of doubt and uncertainty, The Binding of Isaac – in its newer Rebirth form – is officially heading to Wii U and New 3DS.
If you’re unfamiliar with The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, this remake of the 2011 top-down 2D dungeon crawler throws you into the maniacal world of Isaac, who must traverse through his mothers basement to escape religious sacrifice. During your adventure, Isaac will encounter various monsters and bosses that he will have to slaughter. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth features an additional 17 new “normal” bosses, plus 3 new “final” bosses (including Mega Satan). It also contains all content from the original Binding of Isaac and its expansion, Wrath of the Lamb, in addition to new items, rooms, characters, and enemies.
There was a lot of disbelief that Rebirth would not come out for Nintendo platforms, based on the original game getting rejected on 3DS back in 2012, which was due to its “questionable religious content.” When creator Edmund McMillen announced the ports to Wii U and New 3DS on April 1st, he revealed a version of the game that would be edited for Nintendo platforms. Thankfully, that was just a joke, Nintendo seems perfectly fine releasing the uncensored game, and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will launch on Wii U and New 3DS intact. Older versions of 3DS and 2DS will not be able to play, unfortunately.
No date was revealed, but expect The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth to hit the eShop soon.
