[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks closed lower Thursday as soft Japanese growth data left investors guessing about the chances of more central bank stimulus, but Nintendo soared on news of a Super Mario game tie-up with Apple.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 0.32 per cent, or 53.67 points, to 16,958.77, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares lost 0.27 per cent, or 3.58 points, to close at 1,345.95.
