I’d planted bombs at Nintendo headquarters, tomorrow afternoon they’re going to blow up, Nintendo go bankrupt.
A 25-year-old Japanese man has been arrested on suspicion for targeting two Nintendo executives and threatening to take their lives. According to Sankei News, the man had allegedly sent death threats via Nintendo’s online inquiry form on his home computer, naming both executives – whose identities have remained anonymous – saying he was going to kill them “sooner or later”.
This morning, the man was arrested by Kyoto police and has since admitted to his actions. It has also been reported that the man allegedly wrote other death threats on the Nintendo site, which have now been tracked from the IP address on the suspect’s home computer. One of the threats stated:
Kyoto police are currently investigating other such incidents from September which could be connected.
