In other news, Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto retweeted the news regarding tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct. This was done for Famitsu’s news post about the broadcast as well as a message from The Game Awards’ account. Were those retweets done simply to express excitement, or will Square Enix have more to show?

Nintendo NY discovered a concerning email today sent to the store concerning a bomb threat. Workers came across the message, which was actually delivered in April, after cleaning out the inbox.

Twitch streamer Mitsu first reported the news, who says the threat was made due to “displeasure over the Super Smash Bros. kiosks being removed from the store.” NY Daily News also confirmed the situation with an NYPD spokeswoman.

The police are currently investigating. But NY Daily News add that “since nothing has exploded over the last two months, it’s not believed the gamer will make good on his threat, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the case said.”
