    US only, pathetic. We’re in the future now, there is no country exclusivity or shouldn’t be.
    Another reason to cheer on the hackers

    It's literally US only. Nothing comes up if you're in Canada.

    Your mom's basement.
    I thought the purpose of Humble Bundle was to bring discounts. What's the freakin point?

    Even if this was available in Canada I won't ever buy anything from humble again, now that they're owned by IGN.

    US only is annoying, but at least this is a start. Also, buying the games like this lets you get a key for them, meaning it's FINALLY possible to buy game keys to gift to people since you can't "buy as gift" on 3DS for example, not even from the official website!

    How would you install a game from the Humble Store on your Switch?

    Erm...just out of curiosity: can anyone give the actual game list? I get that they want sales to be region only at first, but right now they're only showing the banner to me. Result: it's almost as if nintendo is presenting games like destiny 2, metro exodus and call of duty 4 (they're the current specials/featured games). :P


    Humble has expanded beyond bundles to having a store for well over a year now. It's not that different from other online stores, perhaps with the exception that there is usually a percentage going to charity. Whether that also goes for nintendo games is (as @leon315 mentions) a good question. I have honestly no idea. :unsure:

    Nintendo should move off the hardware scene and go headlong into producing multi platform games, I want to play Mario kart on my PC and Animal crossing on my smartphone kthx.
