If you remember last year we first caught wind of the upcoming game, The Legend of Bum-Bo, and it was supposed to be launching around December. Clearly, that didn't happen, but we've just got a little snippet of news telling us we shouldn't have too much longer to wait.
The Legend of Bum-Bo is somewhat a sequel to The Binding of Isaac, though its art style and content is a little different. This upcoming title uses a puzzle board and plays on the familiar match-something puzzle formula. You'll be able to perform basic attacks, defend/heal, and gain mana to cast spells (100 of them so far), which you can read about in more detail here.
For those wondering what’s new with the legend of bum-bo, @jamesid and I have expanded the game a bit and pushed its release back to the first half of 2018. Expect news and a teaser trailer by feb! pic.twitter.com/AEXL1BRxDu — Edmund McMillen (@edmundmcmillen) January 2, 2018
