The Binding Of Isaac Afterbirth+ No Longer A Launch Title For Nintendo Switch

The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth Switch delay

While Nintendo Switch doesn’t have one of the most impressive launch lineups ever seen, it still has some big games that could turn out great. While The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ was set to be one of those games, that will no longer be the case.

A blog post was published by developer Nicalis today, where they said that “For those of you who have pre-ordered already you may have noticed your order shifted date. We were unable to confirm the revised release date until now (due to issues way beyond our control), but can confirm that the Release Date for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Nintendo Switch has been pushed back. It’s still March, but we won’t make 3.3 (insert sad face here).”

However, they did have some good news to share about the game to go along with the delay. They announced that the Nintendo Switch version of the game will come with a reversible cover and a 20-page instruction booklet, along with two free sticker sheets and an Isaac sticker. They also remind everybody that this edition of the game that comes with the 20-page instruction booklet will be for the launch edition of the game only, with the booklet not being included in any future Switch production runs.

They also gave an update on the game’s booster packs, saying they’re “still working very hard implementing and testing all the initial mods from January into the first booster pack. Expect maybe one or two more updates before the Booster Pack kicks in, but it’s coming. And keep your mods coming into the workshop, we’re reviewing as many as we can.”

The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ is currently only available on PC, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions also set to debut later this year but don’t have concrete release dates.
