Illustration for article titled Gamer Kid Threatened To Kill And Kill Again

After this fourteen-year-old boy's cell phone gaming site membership was canceled, he decided to get even: by threatening to murder people.

The boy belonged to popular cell phone gaming site "Mobage Town", but lost his membership after making comments like "die" to a fellow player, reports, while playing "Kaitou Royal" (pictured).


Mobage-Town is incredibly popular in Japan with new titles like Shenmue Town bound for the social gaming service.

Between May and June, the junior high schooler sent the site's company emails over approximately twenty occasions. "I wanted my membership back at any cost so that I could play games on the site again," he told police. That includes making death threats.

"I really want to have my membership back," he apparently wrote in one email. "If I'm not allowed to, I will kill five people by the day after tomorrow."


According to the Mainichi Daily News, the minor is accused with forcible obstruction of a business.
