The Pokemon company is partly owned by Nintendo and whenever they get some revenues, Nintendo gets a part of it.
Due to the recent release of the highly popular game in mobile phones right now, Pokemon Go, Nintendo’s other products were getting popular as well.
Just a few weeks after the release of Pokemon Go, Nintendo’s 2DS and 3DS portable game consoles’ sales rose up to new heights. In fact, reports say that both of the portable game consoles enjoyed a 234 and a 222 percent increase in sales, respectively.
Most retailers attribute this to the recent release of Pokemon Go, which was warmly received by fans of the iconic franchise.
The game is so popular that it garnered more than 75 million downloads in less than two months. And, that is to say, that the game is not even released worldwide yet!
Now, what made people buy Nintendo’s other products? That is mainly because people want to play other Pokemon games.
That is true in some people. For example, my cousin always buys things related to something he is currently a fan of. Whenever he sees a movie say, Power Rangers, he will always buy stuff that is related to the franchise.
I think that is what’s happening with Nintendo’s portable game consoles. Since some of the most recent Pokemon games are for these game consoles, it is no wonder that people are buying them.
Furthermore, the new Pokemon games, Pokemon Sun and Moon, will be released very soon and that probably prompted people to buy the Nintendo 3DS as well.
I think the popularity of the game, Pokemon Go, has made a huge impact for Nintendo. In the first month since the game’s release, a lot of shareholders have invested in the company, with more people investing their shares in the entertainment company as well.
And now, people are buying Nintendo’s portable game consoles so they can play other Pokemon games as well. This is success, I tell you!
But, Nintendo is not done yet. They are still going to release their new flagship game console, the Nintendo NX, next year. It is reportedly going to be a huge game console launch because there will be a lot of games that fans can expect.
Also, 3rd party game developers have expressed their support and they promised fans that they are going to make games for the said game console.
I truly believe that it is the start of Nintendo’s Renaissance. I know that Nintendo has suffered major losses considering that the Nintendo Wii U was a complete flop.
But, with the things that are happening now, only the positive things reign supreme for the entertainment company.
I am really excited about the Nintendo NX because it will feature a powerful graphics processor and a bevy of games that fans of the Nintendo franchise will surely love.
The Nintendo NX will be available in March 2017. While you’re waiting for the Nintendo NX, you can buy the Nintendo 3DS and play the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon game.
