Binding Of Isaac developer Edmund McMillen has confirmed that the title is currently being remade for a console and full PC release with a whole host of updated features.
Edmund McMillen has confirmed that “Binding of isaac is currently being remade for a console release” in addition to an iOS and Android version of Super Meat Boy whilst responding to fan enquiries on his Formspring. He states that the title will be a “remake with a wrath of the lamb size expansion added to it + more and it wont be out till next year”.
McMillen is aiming to bring the title to all consoles, including OUYA “if the publisher wants to do it”, and says that “the console version of isaac will feature A TON of new modes, bosses, items, playable characters, co-op and a million other things we couldnt do in the flash version.”
In regards to updating the Flash version of Isaac, McMillen cited that “the file size is so large that it takes 10-15 trys to export a functional swf file.. if we add or edit anything it gets worse and worse and is getting to the point where the fla becomes corrupted every other save.. we cant add anything without breaking EVERYTHING. so yeah thats why the flash version is totaly done.”
In regards to rumours about the addition of co-op, the developer stated that fans will “have to wait and see”.
