The Binding of Isaac: Repentance comes oozing onto PlayStation and Switch in Q3 2021


Pre-orders now live on physical editions

PlayStation and Nintendo fans waiting to get eyeballs-deep in the grim ‘n’ gross world of The Binding of Isaac: Repentance have, at the very least, a release window with which to mark their calendars. Described by creator Ed McMillen as “the best version” of the twin-stick roguelike, Repentance will hit PS4, PS5, and Switch in the third quarter of 2021.

The supposed “final” chapter sees The Binding of Isaac fine-tuned to perfection, adding new playable characters, alternate paths and chapters, over 100 new enemies, a new final boss character, seven extra challenges, and multiple surprises. Nicalis Games suggests that Repentance brings with it “thousands of hours” of gameplay, ensuring that both newcomers and The Binding of Isaac‘s most fanatical followers will find plenty of dark deviance within.

The Binding of Isaac: Repentance launches on PC via Steam March 31 and on PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch later this year. In addition, pre-orders for PS5 and Nintendo Switch physical editions are now open on the Nicalis store, retailing for $59.99 USD.
