And you thought Monopoly made people angry.

Nintendo World NYC received a bomb threat, the New York Police Department confirmed, after a person was allegedly angry over the removal of “Super Smash Bros.” kiosks from the store.

The complaint report was filed on Saturday after store administrators found that the threat was first written in April. According to a tweet by Twitch streamer Mitsu, the incident was being treated as a terroristic act, and both the NYPD and FBI are involved.

“Nintendo World NYC received a bomb threat earlier this morning from a yet unidentified person expressing displeasure over the Smash Bros. kiosks being removed from the store,” Mitsu wrote in the tweet. “The situation has been escalated by NYPD to the FBI and may be investigated as a Terrorist act.”

Police are still investigating the bomb threat, but Nintendo World NYC will remain open until further notice.
