In a quick update to his personal blog, Edmund McMillen has said work on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is coming along swimmingly. A significant number of assets from the original game have been reproduced in the re-releases 16-bit art style, and the artists will soon move on to working on new content. McMillen said he’s “quite happy with how things are looking” and that “the game is in good hands”. Rebirth is a console re-release of the experimental rogue-like, freed from its Flash engine constraints to support new content and an overhauled art style thanks to Nicalis.

Guxt, a 2007 vertical shoot-’em-up from Cave Story creator Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya, is headed to the 3DS eShop. Publisher Nicalis made a surprise announcement of Guxt’s port on Twitter, noting that it’s achieved an E for Everyone rating. Producer Tyrone Rodriguez revealed that the shooter will employ a vertical display mode, allowing you to turn the 3DS through 90 degrees and enjoy a longer playing field without a hinge break. No date or pricing information yet, but Rodriguez did note that Nicalis plans on having Guxt be cheaper than Cave Story, as it is shorter.
