Five years after the launch of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth on iOS in 2017, players are still hungry for expansions or potential DLCs that we find on PC and Switch. In fact, the iOS version has been delisted and brought back to the App Store more than once, with no game updates for the latest devices.
Today, Tyrone Rodriguez, founder of Nicalis and executive producer of The Binding of Isaac, tweeted a video of The Binding of Isaac: Repentance on iPhone. He then confirmed in the following tweets that the game will include controller support and that it will be launched in 2023. Good news!
The Binding of Isaac is back soon
For the record, The Binding of Isaac: Repentance has already been released as DLC in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Switch (and PC before that). The mobile version remains far from the account currently.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is an older version of the current game on other platforms. Since Rebirth, Afterbirth and Afterbirth+ have been released on PC and console with The Binding of Isaac: Repentance being the most recent release and expansion. The Binding of Isaac: Repentance is therefore the ultimate edition of the twin-stick shooter that borrows from the best roguelikes.
If you don’t know this title, it’s time to discover a violent and very addictive game (which struggled to pass App Store validation).
Still, we don’t know if The Binding of Isaac Repentance will be an all-new game or a paid update for the existing version. In any case, it’s a bit like Dead Cells on the iPhone, this kind of game is more enjoyable with a Razer Kishi or Backbone type controller.
