The battle for online digital game store supremacy had another shot fired today by the fine folks over at Humble Bundle. As of now, a hearty selection of Nintendo Switch and 3DS digital titles are available on the Humble Bundle marketplace. Selections include first and third-party titles as well as a number of pre-orders for upcoming games. The company announced their latest storefront addition in a Twitter post earlier today.
Exciting Humble Store news today: Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games are now available on the Store for US customers! 🎉 #NintendoSwitch #Nintendo3DShttps://t.co/2y7FPSve5z pic.twitter.com/aN8KzA6Zb7— Humble Bundle (@humble) January 7, 2019
This is a pretty big get for Humble Bundle and it couldn’t have come at a better time as competition heats up between a number of existing and brand new online shops. Just recently Epic Games entered the fray with their own online shop that promises a hefty cut of sales to the developers themselves. As the market changes being able to offer up something unique like titles for Nintendo consoles is definitely something that could give a shop a leg up against their competitors. Hopefully, this also leads to the potential of seeing some Nintendo-themed bundles for charity in the future as well.
Right now there are a little over 40 titles available in the Humble Store for the Nintendo Switch and 3DS. Titles available include hits like Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch, and Pokemon Gold and Silver for the 3DS. More titles are sure to be on the way soon as Nintendo increases their presence in the digital store. Currently, they are only being offered for the US online store, but these offerings could expand to other countries in the future. Players in the US can head over to the Humble Bundle store and check out the offerings from Nintendo for themselves now. Just be sure you leave enough money in your account to pay rent and bills.
