The 2011 independent video game The Binding of Isaac is set to spawn yet another sequel, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, later this year. However, though the title is officially expected to reach the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms, a hint from its developer signals that an iPad version could eventually be released, too.
TouchArcade shares the tidbit, and draws our attention to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth’s FAQ Web page. There, in response to a question asking about the game’s potential release for other platforms, the developer explains:
as of now, Steam, Ps4 and Vita … but the rest arent [sic] out of the question. we [sic] would love to release on all systems, the ball is in their courts though. we [sic] miiiiight [sic] also test the game out on ipad [sic] and see how it works, if it works ok then we will also release there.
From what we understand, Rebirth is around the same size as The Binding of Isaac: Wrath of the Lamb. Much like the original game, all three are rogue-like dungeon-crawlers which situate the protagonist, Isaac, against an array of monstrous creatures.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will also offer gamers both single player and co-op modes of gameplay, and it features new items, new enemies new environments, and 16-bit graphics. The game’s developer notes that a Nintendo 3DS version could ultimately launch, but explains that Rebirth’s potentially blasphemous content presently goes against Nintendo’s publishing guidelines (for this reason, the original game received an age rating of 16+ in Germany back when it was first released).
Below, we’ve included a trailer for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. Is it a game you’d like to see launch for the iPad?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLtZW3xIix0&feature=player_embedded
