Humble Bundle has teamed up with Nintendo for the second time to offer several indie titles for Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. This Bundle is notable for offering select Nintendo indie titles outside of just North America.
The “Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle” includes several tiers of games depending on how much you want to pay. All of Humble Bundle’s offerings are presented in the same way, with a pay anything tier, a pay more than the average tier, and a specifically priced tier.
In this case, paying at least $1 nets you:
- Retro City Rampage: DX on Nintendo 3DS
- Affordable Space Adventures on the Wii U
- Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse on both Wii U and 3DS.
Paying more than the average (currently $9.77) also gets you:
- Freedom Planet on the Wii U
- Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure on 3DS
- Citizens of Earth on Wii U or 3DS
- Retro City Rampage: DX Menu Theme for 3DS.
Pony up at least $13 and you get access to two older AAA titles:
- Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition on 3DS
- Darksiders II on Wii U.
Humble also lists more games coming soon to the average tier. Customers receive Nintendo eShop codes for all the games they qualify for.
Humble Bundle is famous for including a payment method that allows you to choose where your money goes. Each Bundle is also paired with a charity organization. This Nintendo Bundle features two charities: SOS Children’s Villages International and Code.org. SOS Children’s Villages supports abandoned and orphaned children around the world. Code.org promotes and encourages computer science for students, particularly women and minority groups.
Even if you already own one or two of these games, this is a great deal to pick up some fun indie games on your Wii U and/or 3DS while supporting a good cause. I can personally recommend Retro City Rampage as a hilarious old-school throwback filled with pixelated gameplay and 80s pop culture references. Darksiders II is also a fantastic 3rd person action game featuring a fun teenage comic book tone and Zelda-like adventuring.
The Friends of Nintendo Bundle is available until May 10.
