If you haven't cashed in the Humble Bundle, you'll have to take the Wii U version.

Following the removal of VVVVVV from the 3DS eShop due to a security flaw, a second game with a backdoor has been discovered - and it was in the recent Friends of Nintendo Humble Bundle.

Citizens of Earth has been removed from the eShop temporarily due to a similar bug being found that prevents the title from being run but allows unsigned code to run in its place. The game being a part of the bundle led to the hack being dubbed "Humblehax".

No timetable has been given for the game's return, but unclaimed Humble Bundle codes will not work until the game is restored.

And people wonder why I want my ace attorney games on carts.

For what it's worth, Atlus has said they're working on a quick fix (they're probably used to it with Persona 2: Innocent Sin on PSP going off for a bit), which is far more than I can say for the chuckle*eff*s who published VVVVVV.

I went with the Wii U version for the game for the Humble Bundle, but then I saw how much storage it takes up, so I gave it away.

Huh, I was still able to redeem my code... or is this back up already?
