iPhone, iPad, 3DS, PS Vita | Genre:
The creator of The Binding of Isaac
has confirmed on his blog that his biblical adventure game will be remade for PS Vita, with an iOS version also a possibility.
Edmund McMillen - who also happens to be one half of Super Meat Boy
developer Team Meat - explained that the new version of The Binding of Isaac
will be a remake of the Flash original, and will boast a new 16-bit graphical style.
Nicalis, the team responsible for the 3DS versions of Cave Story
, will be handling the remake, which has been titled 'The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
In addition to fresh visuals (concept art pictured above) in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
, Vita owners can look forward to a new ending; a pair of new playable characters; and a host of extra rooms, items, and enemies.
There will also be a local two-player mode, and some fresh music from Super Meat Boy
composer Danny B.Reborn
Provided the Vita remake - which was hinted at back in March - is "not garbage", Nicalis may port The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
The team is even taking another run at getting the game approved for the 3DS, after Nintendo passed on the original due to "questionable religious content".
Nicalis expects to finish The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
by the end of 2013.
