Nintendo Directs are always big events, and many enjoy co-streaming. For those that are unaware, this involves having the broadcast running live on an outlet like YouTube while showing reactions in real time.

Co-streaming hasn’t been an issue with Nintendo Directs previously, but at least for today’s presentation, fans could run into issues. The company has advised fans against “mirroring Nintendo Direct footage and sound” while the stream is happening. Videos with reactions are fine, but anything containing audio and visuals can only be posted once the broadcast is finished, assuming they fall in line with the Big N’s previous guidelines.

Of course, this news only applies to Japan. Nintendo has not made any statements for other regions at this time.
