Business Report: Pokemon GO! and its effects on the company that made it

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - You've heard all the stories about Pokemon Go sweeping the nation. But what about the price of shares of stock in the company that makes it? Nintendo has risen 65% just this week. Shares soared another 13% overnight in Tokyo.

Nintendo was overdue for a big win. The creator of Donkey Kong and Super Mario Brothers has had sluggish sales until recently. Both Microsoft and Sony had overtaken it in the console wars. But now Pokemon Go is on its way to topping Twitter in daily user count.
