We've written in the past that Nintendo's successes on YouTube are only sporadic, perhaps as a result of the company's arguably old-fashioned approach to allowing coverage of its games. Nevertheless, there's a surprise entry in a list of 'trending' games on the video service for April.
The definition of 'trending' is games "that saw the best improvements in number of videos uploaded and increase in watchtime"; number eight has certainly surprised us.
- Mortal Kombat X
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Killing Floor 2
- MLB 15: The Show
- Star Wars Battlefront (the upcoming 2015 one)
- The Witcher 3
- Pokémon Rumble World
- Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel
Pokémon Rumble World is the first free-to-play entry in the spin-off series, and has clearly been a popular presence on YouTube since its early April arrival. It may have had a mixed critical reception - though we quite liked it - but it's evidently gone down well with some fans.
Are you brawling with 'mon every day in the 3DS release?
