Super Smash Bros. absent from Nintendo Creators Program white list
With the Nintendo Creators Program having launched in beta, the YouTube community has continued to voice concern over the early plans that Nintendo have outlined.
We can now scrutinise the white list, which was published alongside the program’s reveal and specifies the games that Nintendo will share revenue for.
Nintendo may have found themselves overwhelmed by submissions, but glaringly absent from their lengthy list are 2014’s Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Even older games such as Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl don’t make an appearance on the list.
This fragility means that Nintendo will take all advertising revenue for their newer releases, denying the content creators pouring hours into recording videos to showcase them.
YouTube sensation PewDiePie has already criticised the program, sharing his belief that those “who have helped and showed passion for Nintendo’s community are the ones left in the dirt the most.”
