Nintendo Is Soaring After Mario Joins The Apple App Store

Nintendo Co., Ltd (ADR) (OTC: NTDOY) shares are soaring Wednesday afternoon. The stock's ADRs are getting an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) boost.

Nintendo will be bringing the Mario series to Apple's App Store with the new "Super Mario Run" game.

It's been a crazy summer for Nintendo. The stock gained about 70 percent back in early July when Pokemon Go was all the rage. However, after hitting an all-time high of $37.37, it plummeted within a couple weeks after the company admitted that the game has a limited impact on Nintendo's bottom line.

Shares of Nintendo's ADRs recently traded at $35.60, up 26 percent on the day.
