Nintendo used to be the king of the consoles. GameBoy’s, Nintendo DS’s…even the Nintendo Wii was innovative and groundbreaking. The trouble is that people got a little bored with what Nintendo offered, and the subsequent consoles flopped and sales dropped heavily.
That all changed thanks to the innovative idea to bring Pokemon back, and with Pokemon GO, a hugely successful game took over all of our lives. Okay, so the game alone wasn’t the thing that saved Nintendo, I mean, it is Nintendo after all, but still it certainly helped them gain some traction.
