Nintendo Making An Affiliate Program For YouTube?

Posted May 27, 2014 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in News

Everyone remember a while back when Nintendo went on YouTube and started adding ads to peoples’ Nintendo themed videos so that they could get money for it? Not only that, but the creators of the videos lost monetary gain due to using copyrighted materials, such as music from Nintendo games and footage from Nintendo games. There was a big uproar in the gaming video community, as some video creators on YouTube make a living off of the video content they create. Now all of that may change, and it may change more quickly than we think!

According to some recent tweets from Nintendo of Japan, Nintendo is in the process of building up a Nintendo affiliate program. What does this mean for Nintendo videos created by the people of YouTube? Well, what it means is that certain creators can ‘partner with Nintendo‘ so to speak, meaning the monetary gain from the videos will go to both Nintendo and the creator of the video. The tweets are as follows:

“We’ve recently been content-IDing Nintendo game footage and music on YouTube by adding ads to various videos.”

“We are announcing our plan to share the revenue from these ads with the content creators with an aggressive affiliate program. We will have more details on this program at a later date. Thanks for understanding.” – Nintendo of Japan

Though we don’t know too much about it just yet, I’m sure we’ll hear more about it during this year’s E3, if not before then.

What do you think about Nintendo creating an affiliate program?
