Pokemon Go has taken the mobile gaming world by storm. Nintendo, sometimes mocked for their ‘gimmicky’ concepts, has definitely hit on a winner with the latest iteration of Pokemon.
The app has made Nintendo 7.5 billion dollars in market gains. In two days.
That is a stunning amount of money for such a short time frame, but it doesn’t appear to be the end of it by a long shot. Nintendo’s stock value shot up by 25% in the same time frame and they are well on their way to a 40% increase since then. This is all without a full rollout, as well.
Japan is set to get the game later this week, almost assuredly giving the company another boost.
