Nintendo shares plummet 18% following loss warning

Nintendo's shares have dropped 18% following the company's financial report, published last week.

It follows our report on Nintendo's financials, which saw the company posting an expected $336 million loss. We also wrote a blog suggesting that it is perhaps time for Satoru Iwata to resign.

Now, the BBC reports that following publication of Nintendo's projected ¥35 billion / $335 million / 205 million loss, the company's stock fell to ¥11,935 a share on the Tokyo Stock Exchange today. It amounts to a drop of around 18%, says the site.

In response to last week's profit warning, analysts chipped in to suggest that Nintendo must move into new formats to survive, including mobile.
