Looks like things are about to get serious with that rumour. A few days ago, Edmund McMillen (co-creator of The Binding of Isaac series) ran a little poll on Twitter to ask fans if they would be interested in seeing an Isaac amiibo someday. Out of 10,266 votes, 48% responded “Fuck Yes!”. Even though it was nice to see fans willing to add a Binding of Isaac themed amiibo to the 60+ figurines amiibo family, Nintendo clearly didn’t have anything to do in this particular matter so nothing official would come out of that. But today, Nicalis is kicking things up a notch.
The indie studio behind the recently released Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Nintendo Switch threw a few hours ago another teaser on its Twitter account, asking fans one again if they’d be interested in an Isaac amiibo. And this time, there’s a prototype of it. At time of writing, fans are massively shouting their need to add the amiibo to their collection. So if Nicalis isn’t trying to fuck with us (and that would be mean, like Isaac’s mother mean…), we can expect an official announcement in the days/weeks to come.
