Humble Store Starts Selling Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS Games

No Caption Provided The Humble Store now has Switch and 3DS games

Humble has announced that Nintendo Switch and 3DS games will now be available on the store.

A smattering of Nintendo games can now be found on The Humble Store for US-based shoppers, expanding the digital storefront's offerings beyond just PC, Mac, Linux, and Android platforms in the process.

Most of the 3DS titles represented here are Virtual Console games, including the classic Game Boy Pokémon games and some popular NES titles like Super Mario Bros. and the original Legend of Zelda. Breath of the Wild, and Splatoon 2, while familiar Nintendo-published games like Snipperclips and several generations of Pokemon games have also shown up on the store.

Here's the kicker: Nintendo games are not eligible for the Humble Rewards program or for charitable donations.

As cool as the addition of Humble Bundle Nintendo Switch titles may be, this comes with a boatload of caveats. The Humble Monthly subscription service will also allow for discounts, and players will receive codes that offer full My Nintendo gold credit. If you'd like, you can check out what's on offer by heading to the Nintendo section of the Humble Store. Nintendo rarely lowers the prices of its first-party games even years after release, so I doubt we're going to see Super Mario Odyssey or the like on sale for pennies anytime soon. This is definitely something to keep an eye on, but at the moment, it seems kind of vestigial.
