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 / won't it saga over its next updated version, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, for Wii U; that's now looking like it's off the table.

As we highlighted in an article covering the fate of Afterbirth on Wii U, it has been hinted that the next and final revision of the game could come to Switch - The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ - which will add new content and most tellingly mod support.

Nicalis head honcho Tyrone Rodriguez now seems to have cryptically confirmed this latest version for Switch in Spring 2017. A series of tweets utilise the first words in each to spell out a message, as shown below (via Reddit)

It'd certainly be a welcome early arrival on the Switch's eShop if this is indeed a teasing confirmation. Let us know what you think in the comments.
