Game Informer has reported on information taken from Nintendo’s Japanese Twitter account about a new YouTube affiliate program.  Nintendo provided GI with a statement, confirming the program …

“Nintendo has been permitting the use of Nintendo copyrighted material in videos on YouTube under appropriate circumstances,” a representative told us via email. “Advertisements may accompany those videos, and in keeping with previous policy that revenue is shared between YouTube and Nintendo.  In addition, for those who wish to use the 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.”

Nintendo’s stance on YouTube content has drawn mixed reaction thus far, but hopefully this move will be met with more positive reactions.
