Nintendo stock drops 11 percent following Super Mario Run launch

The Nintendo stock has dropped by 11 percent following the launch of the mobile mario game Super Mario Run. The game has been downloaded over 37 million times in less than a week.


The drop in share price seems to be related to the user reviews that the game has received on Apple's App Store. In the first week of the game's release the game received over 50.000 user reviews with the current score averaging at 2.5 stars.
