Nintendo stocks have seen a significant spike over the past two months. Between May and now, the Big N's stocks are up a whopping 19.4%, a figure hardly worth scoffing at.
With the release of Mario Kart 8 causing an immediate surge in Wii U sales, it's no wonder we're seeing a positive turnaround for the company. Let's also not forget about the bang-up job Nintendo did at E3 with its stellar Digital Event and its engaging, week-long coverage by the Treehouse.
If Wii U sales can continue to climb as we edge closer and closer to the holiday season, which will bring with it the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and the Big N's NFC-based figurine line, amiibo, Nintendo's struggling home console may just be able to peak its head out of the pit it has been wallowing in ever since its rough launch.
Do you think Wii U's fortunes will turn around when everything is said and done? Will we look back on the console as a failed experiment or as one of the great comebacks in the history of the industry?
