After Being Delayed, The Binding Of Isaac Afterbirth+ Comes To Nintendo Switch Next Week

Isaac Afterbirth

Many fans would probably come to the agreement that were it not for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild being available at the Nintendo Switch’s Launch, then more vocal complaints might have been heard about the console’s launch library than has been the case since the Switch released just over a week ago. At launch there were only a handful of games available, one of which was supposed to be The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+, which was hit with a delay just weeks before the Switch’s release. Unknown at the time how long the game would be delayed, we now know that The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ is indeed coming next week.

The tweet seen above was posted earlier this week on the official Nicalis, Inc. Twitter account. The tweet shows images of physical copies of The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ making their way through the assembly line, as the description announces the game’s official release date as March 17th, 2017. The game will be available for download on the Nintendo eShop, while the physical edition seen in the images above will include a reversible cover, 20-page color instruction manual and a limited edition sticker sheet.

This release is one of several new expansions and updates of the original 2011 release of The Binding of Isaac that adds new content, such as new monsters, bosses, items and a new playable character. Afterbirth+ is also scheduled to arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during Q2 of this year, while the PC version is available now. What do you guys think?
