The Binding of Isaac creator asking about interest in an amiibo

Posted on April 16, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Edmund McMillen, creator of The Binding of Isaac, is asking fans if they’d buy an Isaac amiibo. McMillen put out a poll on Twitter to gauge interest (see it here, has a bit of strong language).

Indies have rarely taken the opportunity to create their own amiibo. Yacht Club Games is the only studio to have taken on the challenge, having created a Shovel Knight figure last year.

Is an Isaac amiibo something you want to see happen? Would you buy one?

    I hear the binding of isaac soundtrack all the time, the plot of that game is about a sad, poor boy and his nemesis:his mother.

      His mother? Wow, that’s deep…

      The old BoI soundtrack by Danny Baranowski was better in every way. Rebirth’s one is worse.

    I’d probably buy it, but that’s more because I like amiibo, and less because I like the character Isaac

    On the contrary, Capcom has an entire line of “Monster Hunter Stories” amiibo. They’re only available in Japan, is all. (I imported all six. They’re awesome!) Also, HAL produced a BOXBOY! amiibo which, like the Monster Hunter ones, appears to be getting no American release.

    This game is too nasty for amiibo.

    • Jonathan Cromwell

      Wasn’t aware that amiibo were a hallmark of purity.

        Because youre a man child who can’t understand that amiibo are children’s toys.

          Bayonetta is becoming a children’s toy? You mean the witch that removes her clothes to amplify her powers will end up in the hands of kids? WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO??? (Already preordered mine!)

            Smash Bros is a game for kids yes, and so are amiibo. Get over it.

            Got it. I’ll do a little bit of training with Dark Pit, since he’s one of my mains when I play. Then it should be easy enough to just waltz over to EVO and win over $20K. There should be a bunch of little kids there who don’t know how the game works. Thanks for the ideas!

            Don’t respond to bait.

          • TruExtent

            Normally I wouldn’t. But this guy is making it too easy to respond and I’m having some fun. I’m assuming (for now) he is too. =D

          • Justmadeanaccount2

            It’s okay. I have him blocked so I can’t read his comment anyway. lol

    If the amiibo could some how help me while playing, I’d be down. The Switch version is my first time actually playing the game. It’s tough. Anything to help or give me a boost. Hell, how about full compatibility with other amiibo that gives a random boost/bonus while Issac’s specific amiibo gives a specific boost/bonus?

  • HeatPhoenix

    Isaac does not have very compelling designs, so no thanks.

  • Douglas Siano

    Only if we get the Mod Boosters on switch.
