Trouble at Nintendo has market doubting weak yen's medicinal effects

TOKYO -- Japanese stocks slumped Monday, with Nintendo's poor performance casting a pall over the market. Some see the video game maker's struggles as a reminder that the weakening yen is not a cure-all for corporate Japan.

     The Nikkei Stock Average slid 92.78 points from the end of last week, closing at 15,641.68. Nintendo fell 900 yen, or 6.14%, to end the day at 13,745 yen.
