Happy birthday, Reggie Fils-Aime. The ass-kicker/name-taker turns 56 today. I'm celebrating by sharing my favorite GIF of him ever. So damn weird...I can't turn away.
Nintendo Co Ltd (7974.T) shares rose as much as 2 percent on Thursday after a regulatory filing showed BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, owns over five percent of stock in the Japanese games maker. BlackRock owns a 5.17 percent stake in Nintendo, the filing, which was issued on Wednesday, showed. The benchmark Nikkei average .N225 average was up 0.1 percent in early morning trade.
For those wondering, here's a bit on what BlackRock is all about.
BlackRock, Inc. is an American global investment management corporation based in New York City. Founded in 1988, initially as a risk management and fixed income institutional asset manager, BlackRock is the world's largest asset manager with $5.1 trillion in assets under management.
This info is newsworthy because BlackRock is well respected in their field, and their move on Nintendo stock shows that they have confidence in Nintendo's future.

Remember that Nintendo x Uniqlo announcement? Signage is starting to appear in stores, clerk told me the shirts will be out "before summer". pic.twitter.com/uBjwmrnSi5— Kyle McLain (@FarmboyinJapan) March 19, 2017
Looks like Japan's Uniqlo locations are going to have the product of the Nintendo collaboration soon. No word on these goodies leaving Japan and heading to stores in the states, but I sure hope that's the case.

The Pokémon Company are recalling a set of Pokemon batteries for mobile devices. The batteries, both Pokeball and Pikachu styles, have been found to get extremely hot and even smoke. The batteries were made in collaboration with Near Direct. Obviously Pokemon Co. is telling users not to use these batteries if they have them. You can get a full refund for these batteries either online or at select retailers.
