The Binding of Issac: Afterbirth+ recently made its debut on the Nintendo Switch in North America, but those in Europe and Australia were left to wonder when they would be able to pick up a copy. Due to logistical reasons and the way retail releases work, Nicalis was forced to skip the PAL regions for their physical retail release, but this is about to change.
Headup Games has teamed up with Nicalis to bring The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ to the Nintendo Switch in Europe and Australia. Headup Games is likely best known for the recent Typoman (at least among Nintendo fans), but have had a rich history across multiple platforms.
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is set to arrive in Europe and Australia somewhere within Q2 of this year, giving it two to three months to arrive. Pricing (in Europe at least) is set for €39.99.
Nicalis president Tyrone Rodriguez has issued a press release that outlines plans for the partnership to continue going forward, he stated:
Nicalis has sought a partner that can take good care of our European fanbase. And with Headup Games, we’ve found it. They’re going to do their best to ensure our games get into the hands of European players.
If this partnership continues it means that European Nintendo Switch owners could look forward to getting the recently announced Cave Story+ in the future. For now. fans can look forward to the impending release of The Binding of Isaac in cartridge form.
