Date has been confirmed based on Nicalis's tweet here.

In case anyone is complaining about the price .. this is Afterbirth+ with all the included DLCs to date. And based on the pictures .. it seems there is a manual too!

Er that's only a valid explanation if you can buy the base game without any of the DLC. Like you can on every other platform.

I'll always be there for physical indie games, what's the best place to import for the UK? Play Asia don't seem to have a listing.

Unbelievable how Switch has Afterbirth+ before PS4. Unless I missed an announcement.

On PSN, it's $14.99 for Rebirth and $10.99 for Afterbirth (no +). Afterbirth+ will only be released on Q2 / May 2017 for PS4 and Xbox.

On Switch, the placeholder price is $39.99.

Do correct me if I am wrong though.

You can buy The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for $15 on PC, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U & 3DS.

I hope that they offer this option on Switch.

AB+ is 9.99. The few dollars extra is manufacturing

I've heard mixed things about Afterbirth+. Does anyone know if it's possible to turn off expansion content and just play the vanilla game?

It's not. It's a good expansion though.

Has Amazon's placeholder been correct this entire time? I made sure to grab it when they first put it up in hopes of whatever exclusive extra they added to the first print copies, and I think it's always said March 17. It did last week when I checked up on it.

Neat, this is a must-play game.

(Personally, since I played it a lot on PS4/Vita and wouldn't want to start again from the beginning, that's where I'll continue once it's released).

Pre-order bonus offer: Pre-order The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ to take Eden, Maggie, Lilith, Azazel, Apollyon, and Isaac wherever you go! Stick them on your Nintendo Switch, laptop, fridge, or dashboard with these Launch Edition sticker sheets. And keeping with the theme of the game, included is a collectible alternate version of the cover art. Available while supplies last.

Awesome they are adding a manual. Have this already preordered to it's mine. It would be awesome if more Indies added manuals to their games if they could.

Does Prime discount only work for the first copy or we can preorder multiple copies?

Especially after the severe rebalancing it's been getting in the last patches. Once the official mod packs start trickling in, it'll be even better.

I'm torn for the same reason. The box looks great and all but Isaac is a perfect pickup and play game.

I thought so, too. Unique enough in this day and age, I suppose.

Seems like an odd thing to only give to initial customers though (iirc it was the first 4-5,000 preorders?)

It's a Zelda themed manual, which is pretty cool.

Just don't go to the void or don't play Greedier mode. The changes to the base game are good, the only thing I really don't like about the expansion is the final boss of the void and the final boss of greedier mode.
