Nintendo keeps superstar 'Super Mario' up its sleeve

OSAKA -- Nintendo's announcement that its first smartphone offering will be a communication app resulted in a sluggish stock price. Investors disappointed with the gaming company were obviously looking for "Super Mario Bros." and other world-famous amusement brands.

Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima outlines his company's management plan in Tokyo on Oct. 29.
