The Binding of Isaac Port for Nintendo 3DS?

The Binding of Isaac Port for Nintendo 3DS? on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Recently, we featured The Binding of Isaac in our "If You Like... 2D Zelda" article, citing it as a brilliantly dark, sinister and disturbing game that needs to be played by fans of classic Zelda. Well, with any luck, Nintendo fans might finally get more of a chance to experience it, if Team Meat game designer Edmund McMillen's comments are anything to go by.

In his blog, he has been answering questions from fans. When asked if he plans to release The Binding of Isaac on Nintendo 3DS, he replied:

A publisher I know is currently asking Nintendo if they would be ok with Isaac on the 3DS, if they say yes then I'll had [sic] the game off to them and let them port it.

Perhaps the game could see a release on the Nintendo eShop, rather than at retail.

When questioned on the chances of Super Meat Boy appearing on 3DS, it was a flat out "No" from Ed.

Finally, a fan asked if the team had been working on Nintendo's next generation system due in 2012, the Wii U. He responded:

No, not at all. The next games we are working on are primarily developed for the PC. Nothing that I've seen about the WiiU development wise seems that excited to work with and console exclusives are not smart for indies to do.

That said, if a game we are making for PC works really well on the WiiU without feeling gimmicky we will totally do it.

Edmund McMillen, you legend. Please bring TBoI to 3DS, do it now.

Btw Az, Team Meat aren't the creators of Isaac. Ed McMillen and Florian Himsl (Himsl isn't a part of Team Meat).

Ed McMillen and Tommy Refenes, aka. Team Meat have also confirmed development of a new game, though nothing has been revealed about it yet.

Odd rejection of Super Meat Boy, cant be space reasons this time as 3DS downloads can go at least upto 200MB.

Man do I hope we get this one...esspecially after Super Meat Boy got canceles for Wii!!

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422
TBoI not on 3DS (guest) 29.04.2012#5

Might I mention that Nintendo canceled TBoI for the 3DS because of "Questionable religious content".
