The video game franchise "The Binding of Isaac" will launch a brand-new edition of its card game "The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls" this summer, in partnership with Maestro Media and in association with Studio71 Games.
As one of Maestro Media's first projects, "The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls: Requiem" will be the next expansion for the card game based on "The Binding of Isaac" video game IP, which also released a significant expansion "The Binding of Isaac: Repentance" on Steam in March and will release on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5 later this year. The Kickstarter drive for the card game launches in June.
"Working with Javon the last couple of years has been a tidal wave of endless fun," says Edmund McMillen, creator, "The Binding of Isaac." "He and his team have gone above and beyond to ensure fans of my work can experience it on a whole other level and finally get their hands on physical goodies and merch I've wanted to make for years, so I'm excited to jump back in this year and bring a ton of new stuff to fans."
"This is the next big step tied to everything Edmund and I have been working on together," says Javon Frazier, founder and chief executive officer, Maestro Media. "With the first 'The Binding of Isaac' card game based on the well-known video game IP, we were blown away by the fan and community reception, exceeding all of our expectations, so to be able to expand on that property and launch something new for fans connected to a brand they love is just a dream come true."
As part of its upcoming slate of projects, Maestro Media will also work in association with Studio71 Games to continue to expand game franchises, including "Umbrella Academy" and "Tapeworm," in addition to "The Binding of Isaac."
"We enjoyed working with Javon and Edmund on the last The Binding of Isaac card game and we're thrilled to partner with them again on this sequel," says Adam Boorstin, co-chief executive officer, Studio71. "We look forward to seeing the fan reaction to this exciting new game."
