Humble Bundle Nintendo Switch and 3DS games are now available for sale in the United States. The digital distributor with a focus on charitable causes has just expanded their console offerings with qutie a few new titles from legendary Japanese developer Nintendo.

Previous Humble Bundles have occasionally featured console games, but the addition of the Humble Bundle Nintendo Switch titles is the first time we're seeing such a firm commitment to a console. A post from the Humble Blog was relatively scant on the details, but we've learned a good bit about them nonetheless. These aren't just any old games being added, either—Nintendo first-party titles like Mario Kart 8 DeluxeSuper Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Pokémon Let's Go make up some of the titles on offer. The entirety of the catalog appears to be made of Nintendo's first-party offerings.

 

As cool as the addition of Humble Bundle Nintendo Switch titles may be, this comes with a boatload of caveats. To start, it appears that you won't be able to donate a portion of your purchase to charity as you usually can. Humble Wallet and Humble Monthly bonuses don't apply either, although we've heard some reports that a handful of people have gotten $5 coupons for the games. Purchases of either Nintendo Switch or 3DS games are non-refundable. Finally, the offerings here are only open to customers in the United States for the moment, despite the Nintendo Switch being region-free.

This new crop of games being added to the Humble Store seems pretty neat. If you'd like, you can check out what's on offer by heading to the Nintendo section of the Humble Store.
