Binding of Isaac Afterbirth + Arrives on the PS4 Later This Month (VIDEO)
After making its rounds on the Nintendo Switch, The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth + is finally headed to the PlayStation 4 later this month. Though the official date for the port has until now been unannounced, a GameStop listing for the product has the Nicalis, Inc. title scheduled for release on September 19. The creator of the roguelike shooter himself, Edmund McMillen, retweeted confirmation of the September date, so it’s a definitive lock that those looking to purchase the PS4 version have less than two weeks left to wait. A tweet with the confirmed date can be found below, along with a cool remix for the original trailer for The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth +.
