Fans will have to wait a bit longer for Edmund McMillen’s next title, The Legend of Bum-bo.

In January 2nd Twitter post, McMillen revealed he and co-developer James Id had decided to push the game’s release back into the first half of 2018, due to the scope of the project expanding. He follows up the news by promising that a teaser trailer for the game will be released by February.

First revealed on March 22, 2016, the Legend of Bum-bo is a puzzle-type RPG and spin-off from The Binding of Isaac series. Though little else is known about the title at this time, teaser images were released over the course of 2016 and 2017 showing the game’s logo, rough sketches of enemies, as well as screenshots of 2D paper standup of the game’s characters in a potential setting. Id, who designed The Binding of Isaac’s trailers, is also currently working on the game’s programming and 3D elements, which potentially includes its art style.

McMillen is best known for his art style in the titles The Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy. The Binding of Isaac has received several ports and updated versions over the years, the most recent of which is The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+.

The same can be said for Super Meat Boy, which has seen ports on the PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Vita. In a recent announcement, it was revealed to be on its way to the Nintendo Switch with an all new racing mode as well. Check out our past piece for more on the announcement.
