Nintendo is getting rid of its controversial YouTube Creators Program, and making it easier to use the company’s content online. Yahoo Finance’s Alexis Christoforous and Zack Guzman have details.
Just because Nintendo revived the NES Classic doesn't mean you'll have the luxury of buying a retro console whenever you'd like. In a chat with the Hollywood Reporter, the company's Reggie Fils-Aime warned that the NES Classic and SNES Classic will sell in the Americas through the holidays, but will be "gone" once they sell out. You might also want to tamp down your hopes for a Nintendo 64 Classic.
TOKYO—The holiday season is looking merrier for Nintendo Co. after a difficult summer, thanks to a hot-selling new “Super Smash Bros.” game and early signs that its Switch console is doing better. The “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” game for the Switch sold 1.2 million packages in the first three days after its Dec. 7 introduction in Japan, where the Kyoto-based company earns 21% of its videogame revenue, research firm Gzbrain said this week. In the U.S., Nintendo’s biggest market, Amazon.com Inc. said it was the best-selling item so far this year among all videogame-related products.
'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' is the biggest 'Smash' yet, and it's absolutely the best entry in the franchise.
Backed by deep-pocketed visionaries like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg and Bryan Johnson, this technology could revolutionize the future of business and mankind, in general, in the near term. Users of neuroscience include a wide range of people with a new focus on enhancing concentration and performance in high-pressure situations. Sports, top-level business, and even online gaming are all segments that have found opportunity through utilizing cognitive training to gain an upper hand.
You know what you're getting with a Smash Bros. game. A ton of iconic characters -- mostly from Nintendo, but also from the likes of Konami, Capcom and Square Enix -- battle to knock each other off elaborately-themed stages. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Switch doesn't really change up this formula, but it refines it in several ways.
In early 2017, global video game giant Nintendo (OTCMKTS:NTDOY) launched the Switch, an innovative video game console which fully integrated mobile gaming with at-home gaming into one device. This huge success powered Nintendo stock from $25 at the beginning of 2017, to nearly $60 highs by early 2018. A global economic slowdown coupled with Switch hype normalizing has caused Nintendo stock to cool off over the past several months.
The NES games keep coming as an added incentive to get you to sign up to Nintendo's Switch Online subscription service, aside from online play and cloud saves, of course. A trio of new titles have been announced today: side-scrolling action-platformer Ninja Gaiden, Tetris-style puzzler Wario's Woods (featuring Wario and Toad) and Adventures of Lolo, which bundles together puzzles from the Eggerlandseries. All three will be available on December 12th and Nintendo is also pledging to bring more NES games to Switch Online in January.
The Switch has been a monster hit for Nintendo by nearly every measure. Strategy Analytics predicts more good things for the platform, predicting that Nintendo will surpass Sony in console sales next year. The company’s gearing up to release one of the console’s biggest titles yet, with the new Super Smash Bros. due out next week, and rumors have been swirling around update hardware for 2019, which would be pretty standard fare for Nintendo.
In response to the popularity of shared game clips, Let's Play videos and live streams, Nintendo launched a Creators Program that aimed to take a cut of the profits when people made video using its games. While it's not exactly a free for all -- Nintendo specifically said it still can and will take down videos that it believes break these guidelines -- content creators who monetize their videos on platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, NicoNico Live or Twitter can go ahead and post videos of games. It also excludes content from pirated games, or games that haven't been officially released yet (Super Smash Brothers Ultimate we're looking at you).
The Nintendo Switch continues to prove itself as quite the formidable little console. Today, Nintendo shared a press release of victory lap brags from its Thanksgiving weekend sales. The company detailed that $250 million in Nintendo products were purchased over the four-day period with the company's Nintendo Switch console leading the way.
