If you’re a thrifty gamer, you may have heard of a service named Humble Bundle. Through their own digital storefront, they’ve sold game bundles for pretty low prices over the years. On Monday, they started to sell Nintendo games for the first time. Although this seems like great news, you’re not going to see any of the benefits you usually get from shopping at the Humble Store. When you go to checkout, you can’t earn any rewards, donate to any charities, or use your Humble Monthly discount, if you’re a member.
When you purchase a game, you’ll be sent a download code for the Nintendo eShop, so you can earn My Nintendo points. This is also U.S. only, but there are plans to roll it out to more regions soon. At launch, there’s a notable lack of games, but the Humble Store is working with Nintendo to add more. You can purchase games for the Switch or 3DS, DLC, and Nintendo Switch Online memberships. You can shop at the Humble Store, here.
Although this is unappealing at first, there’s a chance that these games could end up in a future bundle for great prices or go on sale for the Humble Store exclusively. What do you think of this change? Are you going to buy any Nintendo games from the Humble Store? Let us know in the comments below.
