TOKYO: Tokyo stocks gave up early gains and fell on Wednesday despite Wall Street rallies, as the market was weighed down by losses of bank and steel shares.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index fell 0.33 percent, or 105.34 points, to end at 32,166.48, while the broader Topix index lost 1.16 percent, or 26.96 points, to 2,305.95.

After starting with gains helped by rallies on Wall Street, “relatively cheaper shares (that investors had earlier sought in bargain-hunting) such as banks, steels and shipping declined” in later trade, weighing on the market, said Iwai Cosmo Securities.

Investors were also watching corporate earnings reports being released this week, analysts said.

Among major shares in Tokyo, Nintendo surged 6.09 percent to 6,774 yen after it hiked its forecasts and announced it was making a live-action movie of its hit game “The Legend of Zelda”.
