Edmund McMillen has said work on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is coming along swimmingly!

The original Binding of Isaac was a classic game in the Steam top sellers for a reasonable amount of time. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is the team’s attempt at a “rebirth” of the franchise. The main reason for this is because the first game was an experiment that was supposed to fail.

However, after Edmund McMillen had seen the success of the game, he thought he would do the franchise justice and make it a full, polished game.  Rebirth will be a console re-release of the original game that features an overhauled art style and a bulk of new content.

Platforms and release dates are still to be confirmed, but there are rumours of it being on PS3, Xbox 360, Steam and handhelds.
