Pokemon Go Tops US App Store As Game Boosts Nintendo’s Shares

by Mike Guarino


It seems like the only thing that everyone has been talking about lately is the new mobile game called Pokemon Go, and that popularity has translated to big success on the mobile charts and for Nintendo in general. As the game gets released in more and more regions, the game continues to be a smash hit wherever it goes.

The popularity has resulted in the game (unsurprisingly) reaching the top of the charts on the App Store charts for both Top Free and Top Grossing games. The game can be played without paying a single penny, but due its success it has resulted in many people forking over real money to speed up their progress through it.

This has also lead to Nintendo’s shares being boosted quite a bit, with Reuters saying that “shares in Nintendo jumped 10 percent to their highest level in more than two months with the stock the most heavily traded by value on Tokyo’s main board and giving the firm a market value of about $23 billion.”

Pokemon Go is available to download now for both iOS and Android, and you can check out our extensive list of guides to help you out in the game by clicking right here.
