In an exciting announcement from Humble Bundle, it was revealed that Nintendo games are now available for purchase in the US via their digital storefront. For gamers looking to pick up new Nintendo Switch or 3DS titles, the Humble Store boasts a wide variety of options to choose from such as Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Known for their insane deals, none of the Switch or 3DS titles are discounted yet and do not appear to be 10% off for Humble Monthly Bundle subscribers like PC titles. Along with new games, you can grab 3-month and 12-month memberships to Nintendo Switch Online, Expedition Packs for Pokémon Quest, and classic Pokémon titles for the 3DS like Silver, Blue, Yellow, and Crystal. Looking for newer Pokémon fare? Newer 3DS titles like Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are also available.
The monthly discounted bundles on Humble Bundle are what has made the platform famous. The digital distributor with a focus on charitable causes has also opened a store in which you can buy games, many of which get discounted regularly. Unfortunately, Nintendo games are also not qualified for charitable donations, meaning you can’t choose to donate money when you pick up a code for Fire Emblem.
Previous Humble Bundles have occasionally featured console games, some of which have been on Sony platforms. Also, a popular 3DS and Wii U bundle, made up entirely of indie games, caught many by surprise a few years back. As for now, the Nintendo games on the Humble Bundle store are all first party IPs. That’s pretty neat considering how protective Nintendo has been about distributing their games, and despite featuring no sales or discounts yet; there’s hope now for another bundle or even slight discounts, something not many digital gamers see on their Nintendo consoles.
