Almost in time for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Nintendo will end its Nintendo Creator Program (NCP) next month, so it can “make it easier for content creators to make and earn money on videos containing Nintendo game content.”

Announced on Twitter, Nintendo no longer needs content creators to submit their videos to NCP and creators will be able to monetize any video as long as they comply with Nintendo’s guidelines.

To make a long story card, as long as those who create videos or live streams with Nintendo Game Content, contain “creative input and comments” and not only submitting gameplay, trailers, tournaments, etc., they will be able to earn money at work.

NCP began in 2015 and had controversial driving with such issues as Nintendo could not handle the demand to join the program and a policy implemented to limit live streaming on YouTube.

In 2017 Ryan Wyatt even said that “there are ways to better improve and better optimize how they work with the creators.”

When Nintendo announced the NCP, it was supposed to make this process easier and help creators, but, as detailed above, the road was a rocky.

The magazine for these news could not be better for Nintendo content creators such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released next Friday, December 7th and soon after launching Nintendo Creators Program will not be anymore.

Adam Bankhurst is a newswriter for IGN who loves to see that these limitations are lifted and content creation becomes easier for those who love Nintendo. You can follow him on Twitter @AdamBankhurst.
