‘Animal Crossing: New Leaf’ sales help Nintendo stock value reach two-year high


Nintendo Co.’s stock rose to a two-year high in Tokyo based on speculation that sales of the Nintendo 3DS and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which was released in the U.S. last month, assisted in the company’s increased stock value, Bloomberg reports.

Bloomberg also reports that a rumor that China may remove a ban on videogame console sales has contributed to Nintendo’s stock value increase.

Last week, Nintendo reported that it had sold 225,000 Nintendo 3DS units in the United States.
