Tokyo - Tokyo shares eased on Friday morning after three days of gains, but Nintendo jumped as the video game giant launched its newest console.

A rally in the dollar against the yen on Thursday boosted exporters and led to an initial advance but they soon reversed course as investors locked in profits.

Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei 225 slipped 27.22 points, to 19 537.58 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section issues was down 2.77 points, at 1 561.92.
