Previously expected as a Nintendo Switch launch title, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ has been delayed although it is still on for a March release. Amazon.com lists the game as a 17th March release, whether that is accurate or a retailer guess isn’t known.
In a post today, Nicalis revealed that the game would not be out at the same time as the console.
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, as part of the delayed release, every launch edition includes two limited sticker sheets and features a reversible alternate cover. Not only that, it includes a full colour 20-page manual.
Remember manuals? They used to be little booklets explaining controls and other useful information about the game you were buying. Publishers dropped them in the name of cost savings and made them available digitally instead.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ launches for the Nintendo Switch sometime in March 2017.
