Nintendo Ends the Creator Program

Content Creators Rejoice as Nintendo has finally wised up it seems. This has been an issue for a long time which was quite confusing to a lot of creators in which you had to ask permission from Nintendo. It was a frustrating situation having to send footage first for approval. I mean it was free advertising especially when we enjoyed many Nintendo games. Let’s see where we go from here.

End of the Nintendo Creators Program & Information about New Guidelines

“We are ending the Nintendo Creators Program (NCP) to make it easier for content creators to make and monetize videos that contain Nintendo game content. We will no longer ask creators to submit their videos to the NCP, and creators can continue showing their passion for Nintendo by following Nintendo’s guidelines. The NCP will come to a close at the end of December 2018. Please note that we are no longer accepting videos and channels, and will not review any that have been submitted, but not yet registered. The NCP website will be taken down on March 20, 2019.”

OMG, I love when a company wises up because I honestly avoided streaming anything nintendo because of all the copyright claims. Wonder what took them so long, but who cares we are free to stream and post footage without getting the red tape! However, there will be some rules we are not fully free here, but it is not too bad.

Within Reason of Course!

  • You may monetize your videos and channels using the monetization methods separately specified by Nintendo. Other forms of monetization of our intellectual property for commercial purposes are not permitted.
  • We encourage you to create videos that include your creative input and commentary. Videos and images that contain mere copies of Nintendo Game Content without creative input or commentary are not permitted. You may, however, post gameplay videos and screenshots using Nintendo system features, such as the Capture Button on Nintendo Switch, without additional input or commentary.
  • You are only permitted to use Nintendo Game Content that has been officially released, or from promotional materials officially released by Nintendo (such as product trailers or Nintendo Directs).
  • If you want to use the intellectual property of a third party, you are responsible for obtaining any necessary third-party permissions.
  • You are not permitted to imply or state that your videos are officially affiliated with or sponsored by Nintendo.
  • We reserve the right to remove any content that we believe is unlawful, infringing, inappropriate, or not in line with these Guidelines.

Nintendo had to understand the fans it just took you so long to get the point. We love your games and would not mind sharing our experiences. I myself would have loved to review a lot of games and now that Smash Bros is coming out. It is expected that a lot of happy gamers will be streaming and doing videos for it without getting flagged!

Please check out the Nintendo site to get full details on the guidelines and the FAQ so you can get a better understanding. In that I hope to see many videos and I do hope you check out our content here. – Beast Out
