Pokemon GO has finally gone home. After a few unexpected delays, the game has finally reached Japan. To no one’s surprise, it has found tremendous success. In fact, the Tokyo Stock Exchange has seen Nintendo’s stock almost double since early this month. And no one has said it better than game industry consultant, Serkan Toto.
There’s no question this is going to become the No. 1 downloaded application in Japan, and much more importantly, the No. 1 grossing application. It’s become a worldwide phenomenon, and that includes Japan.
As far as the mobile game market is concerned, Japan holds the second biggest one in the world. Pokemon GO’s popularity continues to be insane. The future looks bright for Nintendo and Pokemon.
