The Binding Of Isaac Could Still Come To Nintendo 3DS

There’s still a chance that the popular Binding of Isaac could come to the Nintendo 3DS. The developer revealed the news on Tumblr and said that it isn’t beyond the realms of impossibility. The original Binding of Isaac was cancelled for the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo stated that the title had “Questionable religious content.” Let’s hope that the Binding of Isaac Rebirth comes to the platform.

    1. Let me try to explain:
      What makes rogue likes so appealing is the fact that you have to learn and master the games mechanics, rather than memorizing the game itself. Its always new, the levels change everytime you play, you get other Items, new advantages and/or disadvantages.

      1. I’m not sure what the binding of isaac is about, but if it disrespects Abrahamic religions you can’t complain if it gets rejected. Really what would you expect. I wouldn’t make a game disrespecting buddhists or hindus even though I don’t believe in their religions. You have to show respect when it comes to certain topics. There are some fanatical people who will do more than complain and actually go after you.

        1. Because releasing video games that disrespect women with their tits hanging out or disrespecting gay/lesbians with the lack of marriage equality, or disrespecting athiests by forcing religious ideologies within games on people surely makes sense. They should allow all games, they are not the publishers, the game is not Adult rated, the game is not 1st Party, why do they care about it’s content?

          1. There are very few games with religious ideology. If having it in a few games is disrespectful to atheists then 99% of all games are disrespectful to religion for not having it. Not only that all the games that have it are making a mockery of it, such as assasins creed that’s using religious figures for their stupid story line. Most life or dating sims have the whole gay thing if that’s what you’re into. Women having heir tits out isn’t disrespectful to all women. If a woman gets offended by that it’s probably because she’s a feminist, and feminists don’t count. I don’t even consider feminists human beings. Last but not least they care about the content of the games they approve because if they approve games disrespectful to certain religions, I like many other consumers, will stop giving them my money. I buy every nintendo home system and handheld day 1, but them disrespecting my religion is certainly a way for me to stop supporting them. There are some things that are off limits.

            1. “If a woman gets offended by that it’s probably because she’s a feminist, and feminists don’t count.”

              *Tips fedora with one hand and opens bag of Cheetos with the other*

              Absolutely euphoric.

          2. You had me until you basically approved of sexist, objectifying, racist and homophobic titles to be published.

            Because who cares about how virulent the industry is to specific groups of people and how millions of gamers are “enjoying” hate and in turn regurgitating it everywhere they go. It’s all about acknowledging video games as a ~true art form~ in some kind of laissez-faire exercise.

            Video games, just like movies must be subject to criticism, analysis and a “no, we are not going to set this loose in society”. The blame-shifting mantra of media “reflecting the world” doesn’t hold water when one acknowledges the reality of how people are being courted into clear patterns of violence due to the media they consume, despite how much industries and consumers love to pretend that somehow movies and video games are pure fun and have no actual psychological and behavioral effects on people.

  1. Could still come my ass. I want to see the word confirmed and Wii U in the same sentence. At least once. Please! Is it too much to ask for? Smh, whatever. I don’t even know what this is. But I have to ask what the fuck did Nintendo do in the past to always almost never get support anymore? Didn’t they like have all the best third party games on the SNES? …What happened? :/

    1. Very restrictive publication policies since the NES and direct competition with Nintendo’s first-party software happened. Besides, Nintendo is a very hermetic company (just take a look at the Wii U’s architecture), they don’t really design their consoles with third-party developers in mind.

      1. But they tried to make Wii U go for the hardcore audience this time and everyone is just shoving it off.

        1. Well, if you mean “this generation”:

          1- Wii U’s architecture is weird
          2- External studios need time to adapt to the console, make rushed ports to grab some quick cash
          3- They don’t sell
          4- “Huh. I guess we’re not wanted here”.

          That’s it in a nutshell, more or less. Exactly the same that happened with the 3DS: Nintendo handed third-party studios the perfect scenario for a blue ocean strategy and they wasted it. Twice.

          1. Yep. Twice Nintendo has given 3rd party a chance to dominate the console with the lack of Nintendo 1st party titles, & twice 3rd parties have screwed the pooch.

            1. If you’re talking about the Gamepad, didn’t that get criticised for small disks? Like, the developers weren’t able to include all of their modes or something like that, Idk. And the Gamecube also got criticised for it’s design too. And if you were also referring to N64, well, the controller had issues. And It used cartridges which they also got criticised for. Every single generation, Nintendo always gets AT LEAST one thing wrong with their system preventing 3rd parties from working on.

              1. I’m talking about the 3DS & the Wii U. Both systems had a lack of 1st party titles their first year & what did 3rd parties do: gave half assed games, threw the Wii U versions under the bus by releasing such things as a trilogy for the same price *cough*MassEffect3*cough*, not doing their part to advertise their games for the console with heavy advertising, and using the bullshit “We’ll make games for it when the install base is higher!” So I repeat, they screwed the pooch.

  2. It just means Nintendo hasn’t said no to the game, but to the content within it. Unless Edmund censors the game or tones it down, it’ll never come to a Nintendo platform. I hope he just gives up on it, as much as I’d want to play it on my 3DS, I wouldn’t want a watered down version.

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            Pathetic, my PC can handle Skyrim 40.000 texture mods and makes Watch Dogs look like garbage…

            1. I’m simplifying my explanation for the average consoletard like Dark Horse Rider here. I used WD because it was one if the more “demanding” PC games

    1. Think of it as Nano Assault on the Wii U, but not in space, you arent a ship, you’re a boy in a cave, with shittier graphics, dead animations, but a crazy story (or at least decent.)

  3. Oh and wasn’t this game going to come but got denied by Nintendo for religious content? Well, I guess it isn’t technically their fault. Dang.

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      Because if they did, either one of the 3 major religions would get butthurt and then complain…

      That’s another reason to why I hate when empires makes games or characters based on reality, including ours…

      Why make an American outfit for Mario oin Smash, it’s just stupid and I don’t care if it is taken from a golf game, still American representation…

      Humans have forgotten what games are supposed to be, an escape and the creation of your fantasies that doesn’t involve anything based on real world garbage…

      1. Nintendo is my Blood

        I can see why Nintendo would leave it, it touches on subjects that can insult or offend people

        I don’t want a game that is just a representation of this filthy world

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          Too bad like 95% of all games are just that today…

          Specially all these idiotic games people love so much today but then somehow trades it back to the store after completion, hypocritical retarded apes…

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          Anout 89 primitive lifeforms already tried that before, it didn’t work, neither will you, move along…

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          Says the blind retarded ape that can’t read since I had already stated that…

          Still represents America whether it’s from a game or not idiot…

          1. Your life has to be so sad if you have to impersonate yourself as a fanatic of a company for which you dont wotk and you have to use verbal diarrea to impresionate.
            Im sorry for you ill continue my real life, ill continue studying medicine and screwing with my flesh girlfriend please never stop to live yourself as a character without friends in real life : )
            (And that was my firts and last coment in this stupid page)

            1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

              Have run out of arguments so this thing has to resort to pointless ramblings about his primitive existence…

              Exposed and owned, now go and engage in your primitive animalistic rituals, shoo shoo…

            2. No one really cares about your personal life

              NC is just role-playing, and people are getting so mad over it….

    1. What’s awesome? The fact that desperate people have to ASK the developer if they even have plans to port it over? LOL

      1. That’s called interest my friend.
        People will ask if Devs have plans to develop the game for the platform to see their thoughts on the matter. Maybe you should just leave the Internet if you’re the stupid that you can’t tell desperation from someone just wondering if the game is getting a release on their platform.

        So yeah I stick by my words, this is awesome news and I can’t wait to play it on my 3DS.

        Have fun with your PC Hard8

        1. What’s awesome news? The fact that the dev says they still have occasional thoughts about 3DS? LOL they haven’t even confirmed it yet, calm your tits

        1. Wasn’t that PC Gamers begging for GTA V because no many people wanted it on the “Next Gen” consoles yet it was a nice surprise so really PC gamers are just as bad if not worse.

    1. The binding of Isaac is available on retail.
      Super meatboy is available on retail.
      Terraria & minecraft are available on retail.

      1. sasorideidara obi the puppet master clown destroyer

        puppets need titles in order to be a work of art. just like granny chiyo and kankuro puppets.

        1. And Microsoft calls you their Bitch, and look how much of a Puppet you are… a terrible one that keeps bitching about Nintendo yet has a Mario T-Shirt, Zelda Posters on your wall and you cried when your Wii U gamepad charger broke….. You’re basically a damage controlling troll who can’t troll for shit.

  4. The Nikkei is reporting that Nintendo’s third president Hiroshi Yamauchi died this morning at 85. Yamauchi died of pneumonia at a hospital in central Japan and a funeral will take place on Sunday. A spokesman for Nintendo said that the firm was in mourning over the loss of the former Nintendo president Mr Hiroshi Yamauchi, who sadly passed away this morning.

    “Hiroshi Yamauchi transformed a run-of the-mill trading card company into an entertainment empire in video games. He understood the social value of play, and economic potential of electronic gaming. Most importantly he steered Nintendo on its own course and was unconcerned by the actions of his competitors. He was a true visionary.”

    – Ian Livingstone, co-founder of Games Workshop and former chairman of publisher Eidos.

            1. Nintendo is my Blood

              Not you J, Slowpoke over there, you are one of the MNN defenders, helping keep the trolls in check and what not
              A man’s been dead over a year and NOW he is posting it? I call retardation

              1. Well then excuse my previous comment. God damn this site needs a better comment section. I could’ve sworn you replied to me. :/

              2. Repost* not report you fucking idiot. It was just a parody of those people in this website making random claims about Reggie dying or having sex or some shit like that

    1. Wait a minute, that was last year.. Motherfucker, it’s not funny to post about people’s deaths. God damn, I almost had a heart attack. -.- Still, so sad…

        1. Not really angry or anything. Just.. Not a very good idea to post about a serious issue such as death. That’s a serious matter. :/

            1. What the hell are you talking about? I said I wasn’t really angry. So if somebody dies and I’m still concerned about their death a year after I’m being a retard? How?

              1. Nintendo is my Blood

                No HGJ, not you, I was talking to the guy who feels it is necessary to report something that happened a year ago

                The definition of Slowpoke is he

                You are an ally of us

                  1. Nintendo is my Blood

                    I didn’t see that and I don’t think every one else saw a “joke” in there either

                    It was more like a “Hey look at me everybody, give me attention because no one else will”

                    1. If you’ve never seem them before then you’re either not frequent or forgot about them. I just posted it as a PARODY

                    2. Nintendo is my Blood

                      I have been on this site for over 2 years, I have seen them but your post was in no way a “parody”

                      It was just some repost of a story that happened a year ago, and your repost of Hirochi Yamauchi dying WAS true so I don’t see any irony or satire

                      it was just a desperate cry for attention on your part

                    3. *facepalm* you’re really sad.

                      It’s seen as a parody because it’s ridiculously similar to the ones the trolls post. I don’t seek attention, I have better things to do. Even if I was, you seem to be feeding me anyways.

                      You’re simply being an overreactive fanboy. Get over it, and move on in life. If you don’t get my comment, don’t even try

      1. Nintendo is my Blood

        A joke? No one found it funny

        more so that your idea of a joke is reposting an article about a man dying… a year ago. what kind of joke is that, more like retardation

        1. Couldn’t think of a better word, joke was the closest. And I’m not laughing over Yamauchi passing away either, but I’m laughing at the fact you thought I was slow, then resorted to using a long-ass URL of an image to prove your pathetic point which was already swatted away quickly

          1. Nintendo is my Blood

            You are just a pathetic attention whore, your “jokes” are not funny and you are slow

            and technically, that is standard URL size you baboon

            1. You’re amazing at damage controlling. Completely ignored my explanation for the word “joke” in my comment. In fact you seemed to have missed my whole point.

              1. Nintendo is my Blood

                Blah blah blah
                get out of here you miserable swine, and take your lame “jokes” with you

                    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      I just love how you and Stranga are virtually the exact replacements of our previous Nintenlords of this site…

                      Nintendo is my Blood “=” Nintedward…

                      Stranga “=” N-Dub Nation…

                    2. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                      I know but your way of commenting is very similar to Nintedwards…

                      As is Strangas to N-Dub Nation…

                    3. No, I’m perfectly fine, but it seems like you’re the one overreacting and crying. Sad isn’t it, when you lose an argument?

                    4. @Nintendo Commander but whatever happened to Nintedward and N-Dub Nation? I heard rumors Nintedward got a PS4 though. Not sure about N-Dub… But that guy was an extremist =_=

                    5. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis


                      I don’t know, but I think N-Dub Nation still reads the news in here but just stopped commenting and Nintedward I’ve seen sometimes on the Wii U…

      1. Sounds like something either Hard8 or BrokenGamezHD would say… but something tells me you’re really Hard8.

  5. Nintendo didn’t allow it on their consoles because they couldn’t even handle a 16 bit indie game, LOL

    1. Actually it was down the heavy Christian references in the game…. Just saying for a PC gamer, you don’t do much research

          1. Yet the 8th gen consoles have had better games than PCs… 3D World, MK8, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD and so on

            1. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

              And on steam we have a lot of shovelware, which he likes to shove up his ass to impregnate himself with to give birth to shitware.

  6. the legend of zelda shrimpshield?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  7. Who cares if people get offended, ninty didn’t care that SMT IV had genocidal angels or that God is a DLC boss battle

    1. Nintendo is my Blood

      well sonicjms, this game touches on controversol subjects like child abuse, gender identity, infanticide, neglect, suicide, abortion, cultism and satanism

      Nintendo allow for a certain amount of violence but controversy is not an option for them

  8. I look at it this way… if they were willing to put ‘The Letter’ on the Wii U eShop… which looks to be the worst game in the history of the service… then ANYTHING deserves to be on either of the eShops.

  9. i have seen in the legend of zelda shrimpshield that there are boplobins in the forest that lead to a temple

  10. retro studios mickial calbot said that he is develping diddly kong raceing2 with monster games and mr tanabi
