on October 20, 2016 9:53 AM

Shares of Nintendo saw a 4.6 percent increase overnight, adding more than $1 billion in market value. The surge is the biggest the company has seen in a month, Bloomberg reported.

Compared to last year, stocks are up more than 50 percent. This is thanks to the likes of mobile games such as Pokémon Go. Four more mobile games are also on the horizon, two of which will be based on Nintendo’s popular Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem franchises.

Nintendo recently revealed four new videos for the upcoming title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, showing off the game’s weather effects and exploration.

It’s almost time. The NX reveal trailer will debut at 10 a.m. ET. You can watch the video here on DualShockers.
