One of the most exciting things about The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is the addition of local two player co-op. Isaac is punishingly difficult, and having a co-op partner should make things a smidge easier . But you shouldn’t expect to see two Isaacs running around the basement.
While Team Meat’s Edmund McMillen couldn’t confirm that The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth would have co-op exclusive items, he did say we’d be seeing some co-op specific characters. That begs the question: who else will we see?
Characters like Magdalene, Cain, and Judas should all be present in the single-player mode, which means we may be seeing some new additions. Maybe we’ll be able to play as Super Meat Boy characters, or maybe McMillen will create something entirely new. Whatever the case, it’s clear that The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth‘s co-op will be a blast.
