Nintendo Stock Going Crazy with Pokemon Go Introduction

Nintendo, one of the largest games companies in the world, has significantly dropped from its previously preeminent position in the game developer world. The introduction of their new game, Pokemon Go, has seen widespread attraction from gamers and the general public, and some of the most poignant evidence of this is the massive boost in Nintendo’s stock price since it started its global rollout.

In the UK, USA, and other places Pokemon Go has also inspired some rabid behaviour from some of their users, with reports of Hospitals having to ban the game from the premises due to people trying to catch Pokemon in A&E, and people jumping out of their car in a busy street in New York in order to catch Pokemon in Central Park. Similar stories have been seen around the world; there has even been an example of a rare Pokemon known to be placed in the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea.
