Nintendo’s share prices jump by 8%


Nintendo’s shareholders will have much to celebrate this week, with stock prices having risen by eight per cent to 10,330 yen.

Such increase can be largely attributed to the yen weakening, alongside improving conditions within the North American job market.

In comparison, Sony rose 0.9 per cent to 1,464 yen, although has seen a more consistent increase over the past few months alongside the company’s announcement of the PlayStation 4.

Japanese publishers also saw similar success, including Capcom, Konami, and Namco Bandai.
