Nicalis founder Tyrone Rodriguez has announced via twitter that the latest expansion for the Zelda tinged Rogue-like The Binding of Issac: Rebirth, entitled Afterbirth, should be coming to home consoles (Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One) in April.
Afterbirth adds a slew of new content to The Binding of Issac: Rebirth including new rooms, new bosses, new items and weapons, improvements to the weapon combination system, and (the thing I’m looking forward to the most) 2-4 player local co-op.
The Binding of Isaac was originally released in 2011, a loose retelling of he biblical tale. The game tells the tale of a young boy who must battle the demons in his mothers basement, after his mother attempts to kill him to prove her devotion to God.
Featuring tough as nails game play and best described as more than a little bit messed up. The Binding of Issac is also one damn fine game, even if its treatment of religion, (and the people who follow it) is a little bit harsh at times.
