Last month, Tyrone Rodriguez of publisher Nicalis revealed that The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth (an expansion to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth) would be launching on consoles soon, and we finally have a better idea of when that will be. Nicalis has officially announced that Afterbirth will be launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 10th. Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly when the Wii U version will be coming out. However, Nicalis confirmed that it’s still in the works, and we can expect it to release sometime “in the coming months.” In the meantime, you can check out a breakdown of what’s included in Afterbirth below.
