The start of a "strategic alliance" with Nicalis
Whenever we cover release details for Nicalis titles, in particular anything going to retail such as The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and Cave Story+, 'in North America' should be an assumed add-on. The logistical challenges and realities of retail distribution has meant that early efforts from the...
Those cool little manuals are getting packed up
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ was initially expected as a Nintendo Switch launch game, but its release slid back to later in the month. The good news is that, in North America at least, the title is now set to arrive on the eShop and at retail on 17th March - it'll be $39.99 on the eShop. The...
First run of physical copies come with "something special"
If you were getting a bit worried about the lack of games to buy on Nintendo Switch launch day then you'll be pleased to learn that The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ has now been confirmed as a day one release. Afterbirth+ will be available at both retail and on the eShop, and will cost...
Cryptic tweeting has the answer
The Binding of Isaac has had an interesting history with Nintendo hardware - early attempts to bring the game to the eShop seemed to be rebuffed due to its general themes, but then Nintendo softened and the critically acclaimed title arrived on the New 3DS and Wii U in its 'Rebirth' form. Then there was a will it /...
However, the Switch is a good possibility
For the past year or so, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth has been in something of a "will it, won't it" status on the Wii U. Though a port was initially unlikely, rumours began circulating that it would indeed be happening, and a confirmation came in April. However, this confirmation mentioned that the port...
It's lonely on top
For those of you that also game on other platforms, you may have been aware of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth. As yet another expansion to The Binding of Isaac, Afterbirth adds on potentially hundreds of hours of new content on top of the already massive campaign, with new game modes, characters, items, challenges, enemies, and...
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is humorously disturbing, potentially offensive and unapologetically gross. This is a game about a boy named Isaac who's scrambling through the depths of his basement to avoid his pursuing mother. But instead of delivering a spanking or a timeout like most mothers do, Isaac's mom is intent to sacrifice her...
Finally made it out of the basement
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is the first 3DS eShop title exclusive to the New model, utilising its extra oomph to deliver a portable version of the title that's graced a host of platforms, including the Wii U. A remastering handled by Nicalis, it had a long route to Nintendo hardware. This portable iteration...
Progress is being made on the Euro release, though
The Binding of Isaac certainly took its sweet time coming to a Nintendo platform, but now it's here, fans are finding that it's impacted by disappointing performance woes. At launch the 3DS version of the game was afflicted by bugs, but these were patched by an update shortly afterwards. However,...
Nintendo of America boss is quite a fan, it seems
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will be hitting Wii U and 3DS this year, and boy has it been a long time coming. The game was teased for Nintendo systems way back in 2012, but Nintendo was initially opposed to the idea - citing the game's "questionable religious content" as the reason for blocking a...
