The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, the latest game from Super Meat Boy co-developer Edmund McMillen, is in development for Xbox One, Wii U, and the New Nintendo 3DS. McMillen originally announced the news yesterday, which was April Fools' Day, with some taking it as a joke. However, it's actually happening.

"So for those that only read headlines, Binding of Isaac Rebirth is FOR SURE coming to Wii U, new 3DS, & Xbox One soonish!" he wrote on Twitter. Attached was a Vine of the New 3DS version (see below).

Meanwhile, Binding of Isaac producer Tyrone Rodriguez said in his own tweet that the game will not be censored at all when it launches on the new platforms.

"The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for new 3DS, Wii U, or Xbox One is not censored in any way," he said.

In February 2012, McMillen said Nintendo blocked The Binding of Isaac from launching for the 3DS not because of its M-for-Mature rating, but rather due to its "questionable religious content."

The Binding of Isaac sees players controlling a child who must escape the clutches of his mother, who is out to kill him after the voice of God commands a sacrifice.

It appears Nintendo has been able to get past whatever objections about The Binding of Isaac it originally had.

The Binding of Isaac was originally released in 2011 for PC. A remake of the game, Rebirth, launched in 2014 for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. For more on the title, check out GameSpot's review of The Binding of Isaac.
