Nintendo shares get a boost thanks to Pokemon Go

Reuters has reported that Nintendo shares risen thanks to the release of the Pokémon Go app.

Pokémon Go has been released in many countries, although the UK and Europe are still waiting, unless of you've made up an account for another region and downloaded it like we did. 

"Shares in Nintendo jumped 10 percent to their highest level in more than two months with the stock the most heavily traded by value on Tokyo’s main board and giving the firm a market value of about $23 billion,” said Reuters.

The app is free to download, and is currently topping the U.S. iOS charts for Top Free and Top Grossing gaps, the latter being quite the achievement considering it depends on microtransactions.

Have you played yet?

I have a jailbroken iphone and its appeared in AppCake - but when you load it it says the servers are currently down - i'm guessing that's because it knows i'm in the UK and there is no servers yet? I'm just going to wait for the official release though as there are a few 'horror' stories of the devs going around where in their previous titles they have banned Phone MAC addresses for accessing the apps early from an un-released region. Would be a pain if your phone was banned from playing the game just for a few days early access
