Nintendo stock at lowest in two years

Worries about the launch of the 3DS and the results of the Japanese earthquake have set Nintendo’s stock prices back 12 percent. The company’s ADR stock closed at $30.10 on Friday, which is the lowest reported since late 2009.

It’s a drop from $38.29, which was reported just before the Japanese release of the 3DS. Despite a strong start for the handheld, the recent drop in sales has delivered this (ultimately small) blow for Nintendo.

We’re sure the 3DS will pick up steam sharpish. Once a few of the bigger titles are out (Ocarina of Time, anyone?) then it’ll start turning a few more heads… and burning out even more eye sockets.
