The Binding of Isaac Coming To Consoles With A Better Version Than PC

The Binding of Isaac is a great little game, and though it may be a bit rough the edges it is a whole lot of fun. The game is currently available on PC, though there were some rumors of it coming to the 3DS that eventually got squashed. Some news appearing now, however, says that the game will receive a rebirth on consoles with a better version than what’s currently available on PC.

Edmund McMillen posted on his official blog that Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will be produced by the same studio that rounded up VVVVVV for the 3DS. There will be a lot of changes implemented into the port which will include two-player co-op and content deleted from the Flash version of the game. Added to this, McMillen says that some other things will be getting changed as well:

-Nicalis is working on the port for Ps3/Vita and PC (steam) and is also currently talking to MS and Nintendo about releasing on their platforms. we are also looking into an iOS version if its not garbage.

-The remake will feature all the content featured in BOI+Wrath but will also feature another Wrath sized expansion over the top that will feature a new final chapter, ending, 2 new playable characters and tons more items, rooms, enemies, bosses and the like. the goal will be to make replaying the whole game not only worth it but also make i so it feels very fresh and new.

-The remake will feature content that was removed from the flash version of the game due to limitations (secret stuff!)

-The remake will feature LOCAL 2 player co-op… no online play because that will just extend the release by another forever.

-The game will be getting a full 16bit make over, im doing this because i think the art is tired and im sick of looking at it. i think a fresh coat of paint is needed and i think its kinda appropriate/funny to do a damake for the remake.

McMillen also mentions on the blog that players who already own the game on PC will be getting a special pre-order discount as long as he can work things out. Right now there’s no release date set for Rebirth, but from what we can tell it’ll be most definitely worth the wait.
