Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

The giant wind mill in the right-hand side of Windy Hill. It keeps on turning even though it can’t fit in the screen, so you’ll find yourself in trouble if you’re on it for too long.

An arrest has been made for a 25 year-old man who apparently threatened to kill two Nintendo executives… among other things.

According to Sankei News, the unnamed man sent a message through Nintendo’s online inquiry form on his computer in which he said he’d kill two Nintendo executives “sooner or later.” The man admitted that he did indeed submit the note after being arrested.

The same man allegedly wrote other threats on Nintendo’s site including, “I’d planted bombs at Nintendo headquarters, tomorrow afternoon they’re going to blow up, Nintendo go bankrupt.” [SIC] It was determined that the IP address for this comment lines up with his home computer’s address.

Police are now trying to determine if similar threats made in September connect with these events.
