● In Comgnet Rankings: Yokai Watch 3 week two is at 276 (Sumikko Gurashi 3 opens with just 18). Last Monday was a public holiday so sales should reflect.

Nintendo Co. Ltd. stocks opened the week at 23,220 down a huge 17.72% from Friday. This is due to their recent (statement) that they aren’t changing consolidate earnings forecast based on Pokémon GO (they own ‘just’ 32% of The Pokémon Company)
