It was rumoured last week that Steam’s sale item The Binding of Isaac was apparently being talked about being released for Nintendo’s 3DS handheld console. There is still no set confirmation for this however when speaking to Joystiq, Edmund McMillen – co-creator of The Binding of Isaac – said “If we land the 3DS port, it will include the expansion for sure”
The Wrath of the Lamb is set to be released within the next 2- 4 months if the project goes ahead. The expansion is set to have around 50% more content as McMillen shared to Joystiq : “enemies, alt chapters, bosses, items, characters, challenges, new happenings and mechanics as well as a ton of other little details.”
McMillen also mentioned about the progress of this project with “The only news I have on the 3DS is that it seems possible but it’s still going through higher ups to make sure there won’t be an issue with the ‘religious’ aspect” Rest assured though, if all doesn’t go to plan with Nintendo – there are other plans in the books for The Binding of Isaac. “If we don’t land the 3DS, the publisher I’m talking to has expressed interest in other digital platforms and is currently contacting them as well about the port.” said McMillien. This could only been that they’re planning on the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network and mobiles since the game is available everywhere online for PC, Mac and Linux users.

Across every genre of entertainment there are specific titles or releases that become synonymous with failure, that in the eyes of fans and critics alike embody the worst that the genre has to offer. They become the universal butt of any joke in that medium, the yardstick against which every other poorly-received release is measured. [...]
