      Tyrone Rodriguez said on Twitter back on 19 Nov 2015: “in other news, evaluating Afterbirth for Wii U, new 3DS and PS Vita. Not running at a performance level I’m happy with. Outlook NOT good.” In other words, these versions will NOT be release here due to the limited system specs.

        Yep.

        But that’s some hilariously bad optimization on their part. xD

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Not cool that they’re adding these trophies to the existing set. That means Vita owners can’t 100% the game.

  • James Reilly

    Is this dlc or entirely separate expansion game?

    • Geebun

      Afterbirth is DLC for Rebirth, which came out on pc last year, now coming to consoles.

  • MyBodyIsReady

    Wish I didn’t watch Northernlion play it all already. They took forever with this expansion on consoles

  • Zackasaur

    My girlfriend will be interested in knowing this.

  • Steflames

    Man i really hope that they can release this on retail as a full complete edition or something poi!
