Nintendo Switch fans will soon be able to play Binding of Isaac Afterbirth
Nintendo Switch fans have been given some good news, as a delayed game is finally given a UK release.
Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ was originally pencilled in as a Nintendo Switch launch title. However, despite launching on March 17 in the US, the highly-rated shooter has remained absent from the Nintendo Switch games list in the UK.
But publisher Nicalis has since announced a partnership with Headup Games to bring Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ to Europe.
The exact release date is yet to be revealed, but it will launch at some point in Q2 2017, so fans can expect it this summer.
Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ will be released online and at retail, priced at €39.99, which works out at around £35.
The game features over 500 items and weapons, 20 different endings, 13 playable characters, over 50 unique bosses, a new playable character, online leaderboards, more than 30 Challenge modes and 6,000 rooms with over 4 billion combinations.
