Nintendo Shares Hit Three Month High

Reuters has reported that Nintendo is making gains in the stock market, with a three month high reached on November 22nd in the Tokyo Stock Exchange after a 4.2% gain.

This fortunate milestone coincides with the release of the Wii U’s Super Mario 3D World and the 3DS’s Mario Party: Island Tour & The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. According to a Tokyo-based trader, “Nintendo got some good reviews for Mario games” is the reason why the shares rose.

The rise also saw a decline for rival Playstation 4, which underperformed in the broader market, falling by 0.1%. Some investors have said they’re concerned the new console may sell fewer units than Microsoft’s Xbox One.

The good news for Nintendo is that there are plenty of huge game releases still to come down the line, such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. in the new year.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
