Nintendo UK Launches “Nintendo Girls Club” As New YouTube Channel

Nintendo UK has launched a new YouTube channel focusing on content specifically for girls. Hosted by Hollyoaks actress and Dancing On Ice star Jorgie Porter, Nintendo Girls Club will feature original videos, news and gossip from the world of Nintendo.

The channel already has a number of videos including an Animal Crossing: New Leaf introduction video starring Jorgie Porter and a Nintendo 3DS unboxing with newcomer Mandy Hynes. Nintendo Girls Club will also feature other guest presenters sharing their love for Nintendo products.

    1. I don’t get what the stereotypical part is? Girls would be into that more than they would mario or starfox. It’s obviously targeting little girls and this works. People should stop acting like guys and girls are the same because they are not. There’s a reason singers like justin bieber and lady gagger are famous, and it’s not because of guys.

  1. I’m torn. On the one hand, it’s a bit divisive and lends itself to stereotyping. But on the other, Nintendo is clearly saying that they welcome girls, a message that’s muffled at best from the competition. We’ll see how it works out.

  2. Do girls enjoy being stereotyped like this?
    If they had a GUY’S GARAGE youtube channel or something I’d just be a little weirded out.

    1. Nah, it would be “Nintendo’s Gentleman’s Club”, which would be a video of a bunch of shirtless, hairy, musclebound men with thick moustaches debating about wanting to play Monster Hunter, then deciding it would just be manlier to fight.

    1. Ow god… stop blaming iceazeama. He’s angry, He’s right. I like nintendo and i like sony so I’m not a Sony Pony or whatever. He’s right. Why a Nintengo Girls Channel, why? Try to imagine such a idiotic thing like this is the ’90. No way. It’s so stupid! It reminds me of Disney Channel! I like most of Nintendo games (I said MOST) and watching a stereotypical girl playing them etc. etc. makes me sad. Remember the VGX, remember the last 2 Nintendo Directs… you always forgive Nintendo. No. No. Stop. Nintendo girl channel is just unforgivable. Honestly I also like this guy’s “black humor” style. Keep it up! Oh, by the way, I’m italian, don’t look at the grammar too much!

  5. Ehh. Kind of unnecessary to have a channel like this. I’m sure female Nintendo fans enjoy Starfox, Metroid, Zelda, and Smash Bros. as much as the males. This channel seems stereotypical and close-minded.

  6. I really don’t like that. Nintendo can speak to everyone without having to go this way. That’s too stereotypical and sexist to be a nice way to advertise games.

  7. This was just too much reminiscent of Disney Channel… *shiver*
    But then again, like someone earlier pointed out, this could go both ways. Either a good area for a spesific audience, or a commercial thingie for an audience that doesn’t exist.

  8. You know, I was thinking about subscribing, just to see more Nintendo videos, and as a heterosexual male, videos with more women isn’t going to stop me. On the other hand, I watched that sample video in the post, and the presentation was somewhat painful to me. Perhaps I’ll steer clear after all.

  9. if people are offended by this, they just choose to be offended. I don’t see a problem with having a channel to focus on the women gamers. However, I still am a bit disappointed because I don’t think Nintendo got together a focus group of female gamers to ask what they would want to have in a channel like this.

  10. If you don’t like it, then don’t play it. Just because some girls want to be tomboys doesn’t mean you should take away pink toys and girly games from the feminine girls. This is for GIRLY GIRLS. Obviously, if this isn’t you taste, DON’T PLAY IT. My God, get over yourselves. Find something else to bitch about.
