Nintendo Creator Program applications “higher than anticipated”

Nintendo has received “higher than anticipated” numbers of applications for Nintendo Creator Program.
 
Just a week after launching the new beta Creators Program, Nintendo is struggling to cope with the demand for the affiliate program.
 
“Due to your enthusiasm for the program, we’re receiving a higher volume of applications to register channels and videos than expected,” said Nintendo in a statement.
 
“It is taking longer than we anticipated to confirm the applications. We appreciate your patience as we work through them as quickly as possible.”
 
Nintendo recently had to share a selection of tips with applicants for the affiliates program.
 
Anyone looking to register channels and videos that do not confirm with Nintendo’s Terms of Service, and can only register videos and channels that contain titles “specified on the list of supported games”.
 
“If a video within your channel contains game titles outside of the list of supported games please remove it from the channel before registering,” added Nintendo. “If you are unable to remove the video from your channel, please register each video that contains games titles on the list of supported games individually.”
 
Nintendo advises that if you’ve already submitted your channel and it contains games outside of the supported games list, you will have two weeks from your submission date to remove them.
 
If you don’t, you may be removed from the program entirely.

Nintendo started claiming ad revenue from user-created videos on YouTube back in 2013.
 
The new programme comes partly in response to this decision.
