Having been severely criticized for taking away the revenue of Lets Players and other content creators for using footage which is focused on Nintendo games, this option will now allow creators such as Chuggaconroy to continue to make their content without threatening their income.
Nintendo has released a statement on its twitter which when translated reads: "In addition, for those who wish to use our material more proactively, we are preparing an affiliate program in which a portion of the advertising profit is given to the creator. Details about this affiliate program will be announced in the future".
Now granted, as stated, this is only a portion of the revenue. However, it does indicate that Nintendo is starting to change its ways for the better and hopefully this will be a sign of things to come. It also may be organised similarly to other Youtube affiliate groups such as Polaris. Furthermore, if successful, this could pave the way for similar programs from other gaming companies. In the end, we will just have to wait and see.
