Nintendo and Sony Share Prices Skyrocket

The pandemic can’t stop these guys!

Japan’s gaming big hitters, Nintendo and Sony are looking at their biggest years for over a decade.

Nintendo‘s shares have grown by 6.6%, helping them reach their highest peak since the the glory Wii days of 2007 when Wii Fit aided a great financial time for the company.

With no Mario or Zelda game being released this shows the need for the Nintendo Switch is still there and the versatility of the console will always hook gamers in.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons could probably claim some credit for this selling over 22 million units in under 5 months alone.

Sony have announced that shares are at their highest price since 2001 when the PlayStation 2 was riding high and wowing fans.

The launch of the PlayStation 5, plus first party smash hits like Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part II have propelled Sony this year to their latest high point.

Whilst Japanese based software companies Capcom and Koei Tecmo have also had record years.

Capcom will have be helped by the positive reception the remake of Resident Evil 3 and the fantastic DLC to Monster Hunter World, Iceborne.

It’s unsurprising that Koei Tecmo would have a good year with Nioh 2 leading the way and the Atelier series still keeping players interested.
