Nintendo stock loves Pokémon Go

Nintendo Just Became The Most-Traded Stock In Japanese History

These are good times for Nintendo. The stock OTC: NTDOY  surged over 60% as Pokemania once again took over the world. The company recently launched its first smartphone game, Pokémon Go, which has become a blockbuster hit.maxresdefault2

Occasionally, one of the phones will buzz. Its owner will hold it up, as if taking a photo, and with intense concentration and a dexterous flick of the finger hurl a virtual ball at a creature on the screen. If successful, they will have taken one more step towards becoming a Pokémon master.

The scene has been repeated many millions of times around the world in the last week. Almost overnight, Pokémon – short for “pocket monsters” – has gripped the world once again, 21 years after Nintendo released the first video game featuring Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charizard.

The culprit has been Pokémon Go, a smartphone app developed by San Francisco’s Niantic Labs and published by the Pokémon Company, a joint venture in which Nintendo – the fabled Japanese video game firm behind Mario, Zelda and others – has a minority stake. 2jpg-995db3_765w

It also became a social phenomenon, possibly unmatched by any game in such a short space of time. A BBC reporter at Downing Street was spotted playing it, even as Theresa May travelled from Buckingham Palace to give her maiden speech as Prime Minister.

Figures from SensorTower, an app data provider, showed users were spending  more time on it then Facebook. Police resorted to issuing warnings about crossing the street when playing and transport departments urged people not to play when driving.

Feelings about its success were naturally mixed, but nobody could have been happier with its success than Nintendo. The once mighty but struggling video game company’s fortunes have waned in recent years due to rise of the smartphone, which now promises to be its saviour.
