News: The Binding of Isaac confirmed for consoles; dev remains hopeful for Wii U and 3DS

Courtesy of publisher Nicalis, indie hit The Binding of Isaac is heading to consoles, complete with revamped visuals and extra content; as confirmed by the game’s developer, Edmund McMillen:

“I wanted the game to feature the second planned expansion that I couldn’t do in the Flash version, I wanted it to feature local co-op, I wanted the graphics to be totally remade in 16-bit but still look and feel like the Flash version, and finally, I didn’t want to deal with anything when it came to business. Nicalis has agreed to these terms, and development has started on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth.”

At this point, the term ‘consoles’ describes the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. However, after originally being denied a release on 3DS by Nintendo due to ‘questionable religious content’, Edmund McMillen remains hopeful that his remake will be granted a place in the Nintendo eShop; either on Nintendo 3DS, or Wii U:

“It’s still too early to tell for sure what consoles the game will end up on, but both Microsoft and Sony feel like it would be a perfect fit for their digital platforms, and we have a feeling the new look might soften up a few people at Nintendo for a possible Wii U/3DS eShop release.”

Would you like to see a game which draws so heavily on Nintendo’s classic Zelda titles appear on a Nintendo platform?
