Something special is in some of the Nintendo Switch Binding of Isaac boxes

Let the speculation begin

There’s no getting around it. We can’t finish this post without it happening, so let’s just get it out of the way up front. [extremely Brad Pitt in Se7en voice] What’s in the box? What’s in the fucking box?!

Binding of Isaac is a game that has always been shrouded in mystery — like the lengthy ARG that sent fans eventually digging holes in California. Why would its debut on the Nintendo Switch be any different? Something awaits the first people to buy the game.

In a recent post on the Binding of Isaac site, it was revealed that there’s a surprise for the earliest adopters. “You might want to consider pre-ordering as the first few thousand copies may come backed in with something special,” it reads. Of course, there’s absolutely no indication as to what it might be. It’ll probably be weird, though. What’s in the box, indeed.

Anyone keen to try their hand at getting whatever this bonus is — or who just want Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ — should know that it’s selling for $39.99. It’s available for pre-order at retailers like Amazon ($31.99 for Prime subscribers), GameStop, and Best Buy. If you’re lucky enough to get the surprise, make sure to let us know what it is!
