It was not an April Fool’s joke. The Binding of Isaac Rebirth is coming to New 3DS, WiiU and Xbox1. I, for one, am excited for the New 3DS port, I think the strange, insanely difficult platformer will play fantastically on Nintendo’s newest portable console. And we are assured that there will be no changes made to the game, and it will port uncensored. Good news all around. Unfortunately, the Scientology items remain an April Fool’s joke.

The other good news pertains to an expansion referred to as “Afterbirth.” They tease 100+ new items, a new playable character, new endings, pathways and over a hundred hours of new content. These include bosses, enemies, floors, and achievements. They also tease at least six new music tracks and a whole new game mode. One of the new items shown off is referred to as the “friend ball”, and it allows you to instantly kill an enemy, trap it in the friend ball, and turn it to your side. That might make a game that sometimes borders on impossible a little easier.

Should be exciting.
