In the two weeks since the release of Pokémon GO, Nintendo has seen its stock price grow almost as rapidly as the popularity of the mobile game that has trainers all over the world catching ’em all. Nintendo’s stock price is now just over ¥30,000, over double what it was only a week ago. This equates to a $40 billion worth for the video game company, and pushes it past market rival Sony.

In addition to being worth more than Sony and causing me to write a headline I thought I’d never be able to write, this also puts Nintendo’s stock price at a six year high, all thanks to one of the world’s most popular mobile games. Can Nintendo keep this up with more mobile releases and the launch of the NX early next year? Only time will tell. Let us know your opinion on Twitter, Facebook and in the comments!

While Jaxson's time is currently filled with writing for Nintendo Wire and making sure he remembers to bring his 3DS absolutely everywhere, the greatest occupier of his time will always be anxiously waiting for Luigi's Mansion HD to be announced.
