Nintendo To Finally Start Showing YouTube Gamers The Adsense Gold

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 11.22.17 AM

When it came to earning money from Nintendo on YouTube, the video gamer company used to be all, “Sorry, gamers, but your princess is in another castle.” In fact, it caused quite an ugly scene on the gamer front, causing video game companies to declare, basically, if they were for or against gamers. Nasty business really, and considering Nintendo was at the core of it, you’d have expected a bigger backlash against the company. But soon enough, Gamergate happened, and everyone became more preoccupied with who some female indie game developer was banging. So really Nintendo got off scot free with regards to being the most hated thing in gaming. They should probably send Zoe Quinn’s ex a fruitbasket.

But now, time + reflection in their Zen sand garden = compromise. Nintendo’s execs have decided to share the Adsense gains with creators of Let’s Plays involving Nintendo games from several different consoles, including the newest Mario Cart. Of course, there are still a shit-ton of hoops creators have to jump through if they want to get paid.

According to Nintendo’s website, gamers must have a Google and PayPal account, register with Nintendo, and include a notice on every Nintendo-involved video that reads: I have a license to use Nintendo’s content in this video through the Nintendo Creators Program. This video is not sponsored or endorsed by Nintendo, but any advertising revenue from this video will be shared with Nintendo.

Gamers who follow the rules will be paid a month after the accounting system for the views has taken place. So if you post a video in February, you can hope to see the ^0 percent split from it head your way by the end of April. Hey, it’s better than the previous, right?
