Binding of Isaac 3DS a PossibilityBy Kyle Mann | December 30, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
Edmund McMillen of the famous Team Meat released The Binding of Isaac roguelike-meets-Zelda indie game on Steam earlier this year. Now, a publisher appears to be in talks with Nintendo in an attempt to get the brutal, graphic, mature game ported over to the Nintendo 3DS handheld. According to an answer the developer gave a fan question on Formspring, a Q&A social network:
A publisher i know is currently asking nintendo if they woudl (sic) be ok with isaac on the 3ds, if they say yes then ill had the game off to them and let them port it.Edmund McMillen
Now, you may recall that Super Meat Boy was originally scheduled to release exclusively on the Nintendo Wii’s WiiWare download store but was changed to a 360 title when Nintendo refused to budge on its meager 40 MB download limit for WiiWare games. The 3DS doesn’t have any such restrictions that we know of; however, The Binding of Isaac‘s mature subject matter may end up becoming an issue if talks ever get that far with the Big N.
Regardless of any hurdles facing the port, McMillen went on to answer another Formspring question asking whether the game would ever see an iOS or console port with, “NO, the only other system you might ever see isaac on is the 3ds and that will only happen if a company ports the game themselves.” Considering Team Meat’s rumored and stated problems dealing with Microsoft’s indie support on the 360, it’s no surprise McMillen wouldn’t want to work with them again.
