London: Japanese gaming giant Nintendo has confirmed it will profit from videos uploaded by fans that feature its games.

Clips posted to YouTube will now display advertising, with income going directly to Nintendo.

According to the BBC, in a statement, the gaming firm said the move was part of an on-going push to ensure Nintendo content is shared across social media.

Some fans have reacted angrily, saying they would no longer play the Nintendo titles, nor upload more clips, the report added.
