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.”
