Japan's Nintendo Co Ltd said it will release a short video later on Thursday of the next-generation game console it plans to launch globally in March - an announcement that sent its shares up more than 4 percent.

Verizon Communications Inc , the No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier that has agreed to buy Yahoo Inc's core business, reported a 6.7 percent drop in quarterly revenue as it added far fewer subscribers than expected.
