Nintendo’s Stock Plummets Because It’s Not Making Enough Money Off of Pokémon Go

Earlier last week, Nintendo was basking in a dewey post-Pokémon Go glow, its stock doubling in value because of the game’s wild success. But what goes up must come down—thanks, Newton—and after the market closed on Friday, Nintendo revealed in a press release that “the game’s financial impact will be ‘limited’ and that it doesn’t expect to revise its annual forecast higher based on ‘current conditions,’” according to Bloomberg.

Pokemon Go is coming to McDonalds (in Japan at least)

Pokemon Go Release Date Japan
Wait, is Japan included in the list of countries where Pokemon Go is available? No, no it’s not. But the app is finally coming to Nintendo’s home market, where swarms of Pokemon fans are probably anxiously waiting for the app to finally launch. Better yet, Pokemon Go players in Japan will be the first ones to get access to a brand new feature, one that has the potential to be both annoying and awesome at the same time.

7 classic games we wish Nintendo included on its NES Classic Edition console

Nintendo Games NES Classic Edition
Nintendo is absolutely killing it this week. Not only has PokemanGo gone on to become the most successful mobile launch ever, Nintendo made everyone's dreams come true this Thursday when they announced the NES Classic Edition, a miniaturized version of the original and iconic NES that launched all the way back in 1985. The NES Classic Edition is small enough that it can fit in your hand, and in keeping with the times, sports an HDMI cable as opposed to the multi-colored AV cables that graced the original. Priced at $59,99, the NES Classic Edition comes equipped with 30 classic Nintendo titles, including all 3 Super Mario Bros. games, Metroid, Tecmo Bowl, The Legend of Zelda, Excitebike and more. That's not bad, but if we had our way, the list of games would have been tweaked just a bit. So without further ado, we've compiled a list of classic NES games that stand the test of time that we wished would have made the cut.
