Now Playing: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Review

If you live in the US and have a Nintendo Switch or 3DS, you now have one more option for buying games. The Humble Store has added a selection of digital Nintendo games to its lineup. The games come in the form of codes that you can redeem on the US Nintendo Eshop. And if you have a Humble account, you should check your email, because Humble sent some account holders a coupon for $5 off any Nintendo game priced at $19.99 or more.

The lineup of Nintendo games on the Humble Store includes many of the biggest games on Switch. You can get Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and more. In addition to Switch games, Humble also sells expansion passes as well as Nintendo Online memberships.

No Caption Provided

The selection of 3DS games isn't quite as extensive, but it includes titles like Pokemon Ultra Sun/Moon and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Those who enjoy playing retro games on their 3DS can also pick up classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon Red/Blue Version.

Unfortunately, the 10% discount Humble Monthly subscribers get for most games in the store doesn't apply to these Nintendo titles. And none of the Nintendo games are on sale at the moment--even the ones that are currently discounted elsewhere, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Arms, which are down to $42 each this week at Best Buy. Even so, it's always nice to have more options for buying games.

I'll be looking to see if Nintendo offers a bundle of their AAA games to help support charity.

@neurogia: I doubt it. I bet we'll see Switch/3DS bundles at some point, but it'll probably be just 3rd party and indie games like the Wii U one was. The odds of seeing Mario of Zelda or anything in a humble bundle is VERY low. Nintendo just doesn't do that sort of price dropping, ever.

It doesn't matter, the games won't be on sale. Regular price. Nintendo is greedy.

Whats the point though they are all MSRP and you can just directly buy the games on the Switch.

@Paulf001: I imagine this kind of partnership already states there will be a Humble Nintendo Bundle at some point in the future. There were Android and PS bundles in the past, even though you can also buy them on their respective stores.

It may also have to do with payment methods. Nintendo only accepts CC, the Humble store takes PayPal, Amazon and AliPay as well.

@sharondgarri: That's amazing. I had no idea you could even purchase a brand new BMW for $6k.
