Reggie Fils-Aime Wanted The Binding Of Isaac On 3DS Since 2012

293452-ReggieIsaac2

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is coming to the New 3DS and the Wii U this summer, but there was a time when this seemed like nothing but a pipe dream, due to Nintendo not wanting the game on the eShop.

Blocking a game from sale, either because of an AO rating or some other reason, is the most effective way to try to censor a game developer. When it’s a chain store like Target taking an older game like GTA V off the shelf, it’s not really a big deal. However, it’s a different story when a console holder like Nintendo blocks the one and only path a game has towards being produced on a console. Situations like these more resemble outright censorship.

Nintendo of America’s Reggie Fils-Aime might agree with that statement. According to an exclusive interview between Destructoid.com’s Jonathan Holmes and Isaac creator Edmund McMillen, Reggie was in support for Isaac on 3DS way back in 2012, though it was former Nintendo indie developer Dan Adelman who was really pushing for the game to make it to the handheld. Now that the game is finally on the way, will you all be downloading a copy?

McMillen Says The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Is Being Developed, Would Like On Wii U And 3DS

Edmund McMillen the developer behind Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac has confirmed that The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is currently in development for consoles. McMillen says that the new look of the game might soften up the folks at Nintendo, as they were opposed to bringing out the original on Nintendo platforms. Here’s what he had to say.

“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. I’m wary about how the game might control on iPad, but if they can make it work, I’m all for it.”
