The Binding Of Isaac: Four Souls Kickstarter Campaign Announced For Themed Card Game!

SANTA CRUZ, California, June 27, 2018 — Edmund McMillen today announced that the crowd-funded Kickstarter campaign for The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls has launched and is now open for backing. The all-new project from Edmund McMillen, the video game designer and creator of indie mega-hits Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, is a card game based on the themes and storylines presented in The Binding of Isaac series.

The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls will take elements of what fans experienced in the iconic video game series and drop it in physical form onto players’ card gaming location of choice. 2-4 players can randomly choose from four different playable characters, each with their own unique abilities that can affect the gameplay. Once started, players will have the opportunity to encounter an endless array of familiar monsters and items from the video game series as they decide whether to barter, play cooperatively or betray their opponents.

“Designing this was fun and easy and I’m treating this as I would any video game that I’ve ever worked on,” said designer Edmund McMillen. “The goal is to make a very playable and entertaining card game that has a lot of strategy to it and embodies everything that’s unique about The Binding of Isaac.”

In order to make this dream not a nightmare, a Kickstarter campaign has been created forThe Binding of Isaac: Four Souls with a 30-day target goal of $50,000. If met, backers who provided monetary pledges will receive their tier of goods, which range from digital items to the base game plus expansion packs, collector’s editions, bonus swag items and more! With love and support and crowdsourcing help from fans, The Binding of Isaac: Four Soulscard game will release in winter 2018.

A working prototype for The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls has already been created and includes 100 Monster Cards, 100 Loot Cards, 100 Treasure Cards, 100 Pennies, 4 Character Cards, 4 Power Cards and 2 dice. Each game begins with players selecting a Character Card and receiving 3 Loot Cards and 3 Pennies. Players then take turns playing Loot Cards to attack monsters in order to gain resources that can be used to purchase items. Once strong enough, players can battle boss monsters that will yield souls. The first player to end their turn with four souls is crowned the winner.

Nicalis launching The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for Wii U and New 3DS on July 23rd in North America!

Nicalis releases Gamepad Preview video for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth on Wii U!

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is coming to the Nintendo Wii U & New 3DS platforms!

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.
