QuoteThe Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a remake of the original The Binding of Isaac. It is produced and developed by Nicalis, and designed by Edmund McMillen. Nicalis is developing it for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam. Nicalis was in talks with Microsoft and Nintendo relating to the possibility of a release for their consoles. An iOS version of the game was a possibility "if it's not garbage." McMillen expressed an interest in seeing it released for the Nintendo 3DS. The game features local two-player co-op but not online co-op to avoid delays.The soundtrack is composed by Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans, and features remixes of music from the original game. The graphics have been changed to a 16-bit style due to McMillen's distaste for the original's art style.A poll was conducted by McMillen to gauge interest by fans of which art style they preferred with the result being that most fans didn't care either way. It will include all of the content from The Binding of Isaac and its Wrath of the Lamb expansion, as well as new content that is the same size as the content added with Wrath of the Lamb. It includes a new final chapter and ending, at least three new playable characters, and "tons more items, rooms, enemies, bosses and the like." Edmund intends to make the game something that people who played the original would want to play. Some of the new content would be content cut from the original version due to the limitations of the Flash engine.In January 2014, Edmund announced on his blog that the development of preexisting content had finished and that they were now moving onto the development of new content. At this time, he also said that development was "beyond the half point."
