Humble Bundle Comes to Nintendo

Nintendo and charity group Humble Bundle have teamed up to bring you some amazing eShop titles. For a limited time!

The Humble Bundle group has been making splashes with what amounts to huge savings to gamers, and whose proceeds go to those in need.   It works like this.  Humble Bundle creates a bundle of games.  Gamers can then choose to pay what they want for those games.  While it seems like an easy way to get games cheap, many gamers pay over the suggest cost.  According to the Humble Bundle website, around $3,000,000 has been donated to charity groups such as Child’s Play and The American Red Cross.  The charity sponsored by this event will be for CODE.org, a group that helps the underrepresented get involved in computer sciences.

Now Nintendo has joined the fun, and they’ve brought some great eShop games with them.  Gamers can get about $88 worth of Wii U and 3DS games for a fraction of the cost. Or more!  At the time of this writing, the Nindie Bundle has raised $407,000, with the top contributor at $500.  Thats some feel good gaming.

As Humble Bundles explains:
