Nintendo shares, which trade on the Tokyo exchange, are down on Tuesday after data from SensorTower showed its newest game was downloaded 15 million times in its first week of availability.

Instagram adds Remix feature, replay controls: Here's how it works
Instagram rolls out a feature that will allow users to remix photos back and forth for a fun visual of your conversation. However, if having your photos remixed doesn't interest you, a One View option can be selected, similar to Snapchat .

The install size is twice compared to Fire Emblem Heroes which managed 8 million installs in the same time frame and the game is behind Super Mario Run which was installed 32 million times. The in-game currency is bells, but some items and areas must be purchased using Leaf Tickets. There are millions of folks who prefer the second option to the first. For comparison sake, Fire Emblem Heroes made it to No 8 in the USA just a day after its launch. No doubt we'll see more Nintendo mobile games released in the near future.

The exact numbers aren't out yet on how Pocket Camp's microtransactions have fared. Ironically, Fire Emblem Heroes, which many would consider a more niche title, had a much more successful US debut, reaching number eight in the charts after just one day. However, Sensor Tower reports that it's No. 10 on the Apple App Store's top-grossing chart in Japan.

Judge Carmel Agius, who had urged the defendant to sit down, put a halt to the hearing as calls were made for an ambulance. Some of his convictions for actions in the later years of the conflict were overturned, but his sentence was not.

In that regard, it's tough to say how much money Pocket Camp is making for Nintendo, since the game now sits at number 62 in the top grossing list on the Play Store. So, Animal Crossing has a long way to be financially successful for Nintendo.
