    They are all USA keys, so don't buy them if you're from another region (or buy them if you want to give them for charity ^^).

    Having them locked to America is bullshit. Humble Bundle is always worldwide, and I was going to buy a few copies of this, give one to my brother and one to my cousin. They hid the warning all the way at the bottom too, as if they don't want to admit it's region locked.
    Fuck them :(

    I have somewhat mixed feelings on this one. On one hand, I already have most of these games on steam. So I was considering buying again to have it on my wiiu...but then it's America only (as in the continent...not the US).

    Not sure why Guacamelee super turbo championship is in the lowest price. that game is easily worth 10$ in itself (ahem...unlike olliolli).

    I'm really glad they got nintendo's platform to participate, but I wonder why they didn't bring at least one first party title (a VC title of some kind) to the mix. :unsure:


    The list of countries is in the description. And in Discostew's first post, which I only now notice.

    I'd like to support it but if I can't play it then Nintendo can go fuck itself.

    i don't know why everyone is so shocked and upset about the region lock, humble bundle is an american company they've even sold region locked computer games before. nintendo has always been region locked expecting two companies to go out of their way to make everyone happy is just ridiculous, i've never seen a european complain about not being able to buy stuff at walmart or best buy this is the same deal.
    i for one am glad to see nintendo is letting them do this at all, though i'm sure nintendo had nothing to do with it even letting them grant keys is a step forward. now if you want european games humble is going to have to get a european branch or maybe another alternative european company will step up.

    GB, GBC, GBA and DS were all region free granted they were handhelds but it still remains to its point. Nintendo needs to get rid of this backwards mentality that they have.

    i agree with all that, but this particular thing seems like neither nintendo nor humbles fault, nintendo region locks all their codes and there's probably no way around that for now they're not going to redo the whole system just for a few indie games. humble bundle is american and expecting them to get codes from nintendo of japan and nintendo of europe would be a little much.

    If the Wii U had been region free I could've made a US account and download it, just like on the 360. Shame Nintendo's still yet to evolve.

    Well, Nintendo did say they may change it for the NX, tho, I doubt Humble Bundle wouldn't go to the other regions too.

    Well then, Why prices for Mexican Accounts are RADICALLY diferent from the USA accounts? Maybe well never know...
    considering that, I feared that I wasn't able to bought the bundle despite already having guacamelee...but then.....
    THIS explains Why I was able to redeem Club Nintendo Codes on mexicans accounts all the time

    by the way, If It is selling 36667 bundles, it is successful?​

    Besides Guacamelee, being able to grab the first Might Switch Force for $1 is nice too. I love WayForward games, and this is a nice chance for those who havenĀ“t tried yet.
