Nintendo’s recent retail successes worldwide have seen the company’s share price climb their highest point since July 2011, Bloomberg reports.

Investor confidence grew from feverish western sales of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and the Nintendo 3DS remaining the best-selling console in North America during June, seeing share prices respond through a jump by 4 percent to close at 13,050 yen.

The potential for China to lift a ban on console sales has also boosted shares, whilst Nintendo could prepare to be listed on the Nikkei 225 Stock Average index after the merger between the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securites Exchange.
