The wait is over, Binding of Isaac fans: on July 23rd, the improved Rebirth version of the randomized roguelike is seeing a wider release – and yes, this finally includes the 3DS.
After a blog update by creator Edmund McMillen confirmed the game for an Xbox One release, developer Nicalis tweeted a screenshot of the game in action on the 3DS, along with confirmation that it will also be coming to the Wii U. Although information that Rebirth would be released on these consoles has been circulating for a couple months, no date has been confirmed until now.
The wider release coincides with the upcoming launch of the DLC content Afterbirth, which according to another blog post, is meant to be released sometime this summer.
After a history of difficulty getting Isaac approved by Nintendo, it’s nice that the game is finally seeing a release on their consoles. At this point however, those of us with hundreds of hours logged in the game are probably content with the PC version.
