Amazing Deals With Friends Of Nintendo Humble Bundle

Nintendo and its partner game studios have teamed up with Humble Bundle to offer up some amazing deals. This bundle of games contains games for both the Wii U and the 3DS. If you’re not familiar with Humble Bundle or how it works, it’s quite simple. By paying at least $1.00 you will get digital codes for:

  • Affordable Space Adventures (Wii U) (Normally $19.99)
  • Retro City Rampage: DX (3DS) (Normally $9.99)
  • Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (Codes for both Wii U & 3DS) (Normally $19.99)

Talk about a killer deal! That’s almost $50 worth of games for a buck. But, wait, there’s more! If you pay more than the average price of what’s been paid so far for the bundle ($9.57 at the time of publication), you’ll also receive digital versions of:

  • Freedom Planet (Wii U) (Normally $14.99)
  • Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure (3DS) (Normally $19.99)
  • Citizens of Earth (You pick between Wii U or 3DS) (Normally $14.99)
  • Retro City Rampage: DX 3DS HOME Menu Theme (3DS) (Not available for sale outside of this bundle)

In addition, if you pay $13.00 or more you will receive all of the above games, plus:

  • Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition (3DS) (Normally $19.99)
  • Darksiders II (Wii U) (Normally $39.99)

So, to recap, if you were to pay at least $13 (you can pay more if you like, remember a portion of the money goes to charity, and you can pick how much goes where) you’d get all of the above content, which if bought separately would retail for $159.92 plus whatever they’d charge for the Retro City Rampage DX 3DS Home Theme. That’s quite the savings and the games included are actually good ones.

Additional digital games will be unveiled at 11 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. CT / 2 p.m. ET on May 3, 2016 for all customers who pay above the average price at time of purchase. No word on what they’ll be, but the incentive is definitely there to beat the average price to get rewarded. This Humble Bundle will end on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 11 a.m. PT / 1p.m. CT / 2 p.m. ET. I’ve already hopped on board! At the time of this publication 15,950 bundles had been sold.
