“Pokemon Go expected to launch in UK and Europe in ‘a few days’ as Nintendo stock soars 25%.
Pokemon Go has become a huge hit rallying hundreds of millions of players in just a few short days. Widespread media coverage of the game (and its consequences) has made the Nintendo freemium title somewhat of a phenomenon, continuing to top App Store charts. This success — likely propelled by pent-up demand for a ‘real’ Pokemon game available on iOS — comes despite the game only launching three regions; the United States, New Zealand Australia. A new report from the Wall Street Journal indicates fans from other countries will not have to wait long for an official launch of Pokemon Go in the UK, Europe and more.”
Just shows if you have a social media hit, you can add $6 billion on to your share price overnight. Incredible success.
