As much as I am a fan of The Binding of Isaac, it’s been hard to recommend the Switch version while it retails for £40 in most places. Even the digital version on the Nintendo Switch’s eshop page remains £35.99 to buy. While I already own a Switch copy of the game and have spent dozens of hours playing it, that’s still a hefty price to pay for this one.
Thankfully, things got a little bit better this week, as Base is offering The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Switch for its cheapest price so far – £24.99.
That’s the boxed version of the game, too, which comes with a set of special trinkets and such that make your choice to buy games physically a little more pleasant. Specifically, you’ll be getting a Legend of Zelda-inspired paper manual (!) as well as two sets of Binding of Isaac stickers.
Of course, this doesn’t quite come close to matching the game’s Steam price, which sits around £10 or less for the game and Afterbirth content combined, but if you’re a Switch owner that’s been dying to get this game on your daily commute or in the bath or wherever else you take your Switch, this is the best price so far.
If you’d prefer to use Amazon UK rather than set up a Base account, the game is available there for just shy of £5 more.
