The Nintendo Creators Program, which was launched to control what kind of people the company is working with on YouTube, closes next year. Instead, there will be a series of guides that can have a tremendous impact on how you view Nintendo games online.

Nintendo is trying to prevent this – whether it is legal to see if any attempt to implement these rules is legal – it seems incredibly productive.
Those who are more interested in the flow of their games may find things a little easier. In 2017, Nintendo introduced some stringent rules about where and how live streams of their games can be made as part of the Content Builders Program, but now they go with a single set of directives covering both pre-recorded content and live broadcasts . all major sites).
