Publisher Nicalis Gauges Interest for a Binding of Isaac Amiibo for the Nintendo Switch
It looks like The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ may be getting its own Amiibo soon. The game’s publisher, Nicalis, took to Twitter recently to gauge interest in an Amiibo for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, which was released on March 17. The Tweet sent out by Nicalis says “What’s that? You really want an #amiibo from The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on #NintendoSwitch?” Accompanying the Tweet was a picture of what a Binding of Isaac Amiibo would presumably look like, though it already looks like a legitimate, post-production Amiibo.
Honestly, it would be difficult to imagine a Binding of Isaac Amiibo that isn’t simply a naked and crying Isaac. It just fits. When a Twitter user asked if the existence of such an Amiibo would “Make the game less painfully difficult”, the creator of Binding of Isaac, Edmund McMillen, chimed in with a simple “NEVER!” Given the game’s harsh difficulty level, it was certainly a fair question to ask.
This isn’t the first time we have heard about the possibility of a potential Binding of Isaac Amiibo. Just a few days ago, Edmund McMillen also took to Twitter to gauge potential interest for the product, this time with an actual poll. As seen below, the poll is mostly straightforward, with the two potential “Yes” answers reaching a combined final total of about 7,000 votes, with 3,000 votes for “No.”
Q: would you buy an Isaac amiibo?

Despite both the creator of the game and the game’s publisher championing the potential existence of a Binding of Isaac Amiibo, there is currently no information on the product, other than the Amiibo mock-up picture shown above. That said, Nicalis most likely would not have Tweeted about it if it wasn’t going to happen at some point. Hopefully in the near future, we can all be proud owners of a naked and crying Isaac Amiibo.
