The Nintendo World headquarters in New York fell victim to a really strange incident involving an angry fan. It turns out these headquarters received a bomb threat after this unidentified fan got angry with the company for removing Super Smash Bros from the store. The administrators of the store discovered the threat on Saturday, but it dated back to April.
Super Smash Bros was the reason behind the bomb threat
This weekend, the Nintendo World stores in New York issued a complaint that brought both FBI and NYPD to investigate. The shop administrators stumbled upon a strange bomb threat likely coming from an angry fan. This person was really angry about the removal of Super Smash Bros from the store, so he went on to make dangerous threats.
However, NYPD is still secretive about the details. So far, it hasn’t officially confirmed the involvement of FBI, as well as the real reason behind the bomb threat. According to them, the motive behind the threat is still under investigation. Fortunately for other fans, this didn’t affect the well-functioning of the New York store.
Super Smash Bros, the game of a generation
The Super Smash Bros game was quite a hit for everyone when it came out in 1999. It was the first fighting game with platform elements incorporated, while it also brought together a huge number of lovable Nintendo characters. To their fans’ delight, Nintendo later released this game for more modern consoles.
A few months ago, Nintendo Switch turned one, so the company felt the need to celebrate it. The best way to do it was to announce a new Super Smash Bros game specially designed for this console. During the E3 conference, fans found out more information on this game. It’s called Super Smash Bros Ultimate and will feature 64 of the most popular Nintendo characters.
