: Edmund McMillen's hit indie title The Binding of Isaac
is no longer getting a Nintendo 3DS eShop release, due to "questionable religious content" in the game."
McMillen was looking to release a 3DS version of his dungeon crawler, which he recently revealed has sold over 450,000 copies on PC
. However, he explained today
via Twitter, "After a long internal debate Nintendo has decided not to allow The Binding of Isaac
on the 3DS."
He noted that the reason was due to the game's religious connotations, and added cheekily, "Thank God Steam exists!" referring to the successful sales of the game via Valve's Steam platform.
