maybe Nintendo had a special relationship to the development of Pokémon Go, but this does not mean that the Japanese company takes the cream on the success of mobile games. Nintendo says that the game in augmented reality informs the public about the universe of pokemon, thus significantly growing sales of the portable console Nintendo 3DS and the older games to Pokémon.

According to research firm NPD, in July, the 3DS has not only become the best selling platform of July, but also Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, originally released in 2014, among the ten best-selling games of the month on physical media in this country. Nintendo reports that the jump was 80% compared with July last year.

the increase has affected the older games: Pokémon X and Y, which first came out in 2013, showed sales growth at 200 % compared to last year. The best selling game on physical media in the US was Monster Hunter Generations, too, for the platform 3DS. Nintendo believes that all these indicators of growth due to the success of Pokémon Go.

by the Way, after the release of Pokémon Go stock quotes Nintendo quickly flew up, but then suffered a setback — investors realized that the Japanese company is only indirectly related to the mobile game. Nintendo itself had to admit that the direct influence of Pokémon on the Go, its business is very limited. Nonetheless, growing public awareness about the pokemon plays into the hands of Nintendo, especially in light of the upcoming release of Pokémon Sun and Moon on the 3DS in November of this year.
