Binding of Isaac turned down due to 'questionable religious content'

Nintendo rejects indie title for 3DS

Nintendo has rejected indie title The Binding of Isaac from appearing on the 3DS.

Taking to twitter, developer Edmund McMillen said the action adventure game, available on Steam, had been turned down due to “questionable religious content”.

“After a long internal debate Nintendo has decided not to allow the Binding of Isaac on the 3ds,” said McMillen.

“As many assumed the reasons were due to the games ‘questionable religious content’. Thank God Steam exists.”

Despite the disappointment, he later said that the indie developers were not on bad terms with Nintendo, and would still look to bring future titles to their platforms in the future.

“FYI everyone, we are not at all on bad terms with Nintendo. its their platform their rules, this wont effect any future games with them,” he said.
