Nintendo UK has announced that they have launched their own channel on PopJam, a social content app specifically designed for those under 13 years old.
Owned by SuperAwesome, it aims to be a safe and moderated environment for children to freely share their creativity with the Nintendo PopJam channel to encourage visitors to post Nintendo inspired fan-art, take part in quizzes, complete puzzles and watch new game trailers.
“Making people smile and capturing the imagination continues to be at the heart of Nintendo’s software offering,” Nintendo UK’s head of digital strategy Jose Martinez comments. “We’re excited to be bringing the likes of Super Mario, Animal Crossing, Tomodachi Life and Splatoon to this hub of creativity and seeing what it inspires.
“PopJam, with its focus on celebrating artistic endeavour amongst kids and allowing them to share their creations in a safe and trusted environment, was a natural partner for us as we look for new and innovative ways to inspire playfulness and imagination.”
SuperAwesome CEO Dylan Collins adds, “PopJam has become the key safe-social platform for brands to engage with 7-13 kids across mobile and tablet. As both fans and partners, we’re incredibly excited to have Nintendo join the rapidly growing PopJam community.”
The PopJam app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
