Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Finally on the Nintendo eShop.

Available for Wii U and New 3DS

The cult classic, download game popular on platforms like Steam and PSN has finally arrived to Nintendo’s systems, it’ll cost $14.99, the same as in every other platform.

The game is unfortunately skipping the previous iterations of the 3DS (3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS), and staying with the New 3DS and New 3DS XL due to limitations with the platform used to port the game.

Parents be advised, this game is not at all for kids, with some disturbing scenery, is M-Rated by the ESRB for violence, blood, crude humor and drugs.

If you’re on the fence of getting this game, just check this trailer that was released for the original PSN and Steam releases, a strong warning for really disturbing, nightmare fuel material.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Announced: Enter Star Wars!

Star Wars Announced for the Latest Disney Infinity!

Ever since Lucasfilms was bought by Disney, there’s been speculation as to where will they take Star Wars, and now, after months of speculation, we get our first official trailer for Disney Infinity 3.0, with Star Wars!
Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack

In the trailer we get a look at some classic scenes, vehicles such as the Millennium Falcon, and characters such as Darth Vader, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and R2-D2.

It seems that the game won’t focus on any particular point in the timeline, it will moreso be a complete saga situation, although the starter pack will include characters from the prequel trilogy like Anakin, you can see characters like Yoda and Vader in the cover.
It will be interesting to see if we’ll be getting any characters from the upcoming Star Wars trilogy or any other upcoming project.
Vader and Luke in the game

This also pretty much confirms as to why we didn’t get any Star Wars characters in the upcoming Lego Dimensions, Lego’s take in the Toys to Life concept.
