The release of Miitomo has had quite the positive impact on the Nintendo scene, and the good news just keeps on coming for the company because of it. With the report of the app reaching a whopping 1 million users in just three days after its release, shares for Nintendo jumped 8.2%, closing at 16,515 yen, on Tuesday. Miitomo now holds the number one spot in iOS rankings.

While Nintendo may have expressed hesitation when it came to entering the mobile scene a few years ago, the company’s stance on the subject has most definitely made a very dramatic shift since then. It’s no secret that Nintendo has big plans to make a name for itself when it comes to successful apps. President Tatsumi Kimishima has already hinted at the next app to hit the mobile world, making sure to mention that a beloved Nintendo character will soon be playable on smartphones.


With the enthusiasm raising for fans, alongside Nintendo’s stock, we’re anxious to see what else the company has up its sleeves when it comes to bringing new successful games to our phones.
