    I remember the developer talking shit about Wii U. I’ll be surprised if this game does get released on the platform.

    Source? Tried to look it up and I couldn’t find anything. Hell if anything all the little references in BoI makes me think Ed is a huge Nintendo fan

    It was several months back in Twitter. He was talking about some sort of obstacle trying to port Afterbirth to Wii U, New 3DS, and PSVita. Then after some scuffle with some replies he made a tweet calling the Wii U “a slightly stronger PSVita” which got him flamed from Nintendo fans.
