Earlier this month, Humble started selling codes for digital Nintendo titles on its store for the first time. Switch and 3DS owners have another way of purchasing games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon.

There’s just one downside to Humble’s partnership with Nintendo. Unfortunately, only those in the United States can purchase from the store. The one bright spot? The opportunity could be expanding in the future.

During a recent Humble Bundle live stream, it was stated that the team is “looking into the future possibility of bringing in more countries”. It was reiterated right after, “Don’t worry, we’re looking into it for you guys.” If we happen to hear any news about this in the future, we’ll let you know.

Update: Following fan feedback, Contingent99 is revering “the majority of tuning changes” for the latest patch. The developer explained:

We heard your concerns loud and clear. We’re working on reverting the majority of tuning changes done in the previous patch and will take a more cautious approach going forward. It was our intention to show the community that we are flexible and wanted to make efforts to balance things in a timely manner, but it looks like we were off the mark.

Going forward, we will continue to focus on resolving outstanding issues, implementing quality of life improvements to controls, usability, and focusing on player feedback. It’s been a very hectic week for us as we spent the most of it trying to track down bugs. We’ve seen a few issues pointed out here that slipped through our radar and we’ll try our best to get things listed and prioritized.

Thank you everyone for letting us know your thoughts. The reaction to the changes were very informative and it’s clear to us that the community cares about the game. We have a lot more flexibility with how quickly we can push changes to the PC/Mac/Linux versions so it was our intention to get early feedback on the patch before pushing them to consoles. In the future, we hope that we can work together like today to gather feedback on changes before they hit other platforms.


Contingent99 has announced a new patch for the popular eShop game Wizard of Legend. It’s live on Steam right now, but the studio confirmed that it will roll out on consoles as soon as possible.

The new update implements quite a number of gameplay changes, tunings, and bug fixes. We have the full patch notes below. Though they are for the Steam version, most should also apply to Switch.
