The Nintendo eshop and Humble Bundle services have teamed up for the first time! Featured this week on the Humble Bundle is the opportunity to pick up some cool indie titles on Nintendo consoles—including Gunman Clive (3DS), Runner 2: Future Legend of Alien Rhythm (WiiU), Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship edition (Wii U), Woah Dave! (3DS), Mighty Switch Force! (3DS) and more.
For those unfamiliar with the Humble Bundle, it is a series of online/digital games offered by the service with the bundles changing periodically—however, the catch is that the price is up to you. With each package of games available, you choose the price. Furthermore, you not only choose what the price is, but how much of the money goes toward each organization—for example, how much money goes back to Humble, how much to developers, and how much to charity. You’re in control of where your money goes.
Usually the bundle has a variety of options. A list of games that all purchasers get, and on top of that, an option to pay above the average to get more games on top of that. The average is usually not more than $10. And thirdly, there is usually an option to pay more than a set amount and get even more games—again, usually not higher than $10.
Often these bundles are select indie games, usually on Steam or Origin—however, this is the first time that the service has teamed up with the Nintendo e-shop, offering select games for WiiU and Nintendo 3DS.
Not only is this the first time that Nintendo has teamed up with the service, but it is the first time ever for a home console to be featured in the bundle. All previous bundles have been for PC Gaming.
