    As of today, you'll be able to purchase select Nintendo games from the Humble Store. Over 40 different titles ranging from the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS libraries are available on the storefront, alongside Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions. For now, it's strictly limited to United States customers only, with no mention of it being rolled out to other regions. All the games are the same price as they would be on the Nintendo eShop, offering no distinct purchase bonus or discount, but instead providing customers an alternative way to buy their games. While Nintendo and Humble Bundle have worked together in the past to offer indie bundles for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, this will be the first time that both companies enter this sort of partnership, which may hopefully lead to some interesting deals sometime in the future.

    It seems that it's continental US only. PR is part of the US and uses the same games, eshop, and currency, yet I'm unable to access the new Nintendo section on Humble Bundle.

    So for those who don't get why they aren't on sale juuust yet:

    Basically put, Nintendo is letting Humble sell things for them, and in exchange letting 10% of the profits go to Charity instead of directly to them, it seems? Hum/

    why
    that's a humble bundle thing in general, every purchase you make partially goes to charity, not just this one deal

    True, but some are like "What's the difference" and aren't aware of the difference between ordering direct and through humble

    Somewhat lame as it stands, but maybe this can lead to better deals or even some Switch bundles in the future.

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, it seems to be continental US only atm.
    You're welcome to try loading/accessing Humble Bundle's Nintendo section, but it'll probably send you back to the HB Store's main page if Canada doesn't currently have access either.
