In a few hours the first Nintendo Direct of the year will take place. So Switch users are more than excited and will surely do everything possible to enjoy the event. However, it seems that some fans went overboard in order to have free time and not miss the live announcements.
We tell you this from a California State University student who went so far as to threaten one of his professors into canceling his class, scheduled at the same time as the broadcast. The campus authorities alerted about this situation on their social networks and disapproved of the student’s attitude. They clarified that it was all a joke, but they still decided to implement special security measures for today.

“After hours of investigation by our detectives, we learned of the Nintendo Direct event that would occur on the exact date and time that the person suggested the class be cancelled,” authorities said in their statement.
They explained that the student contacted the teacher again to clarify that it was all a “bad joke regarding the Nintendo Direct event.” The police department won’t be taking any chances, though, so they announced a campus security tightening for today.
“In an act of caution, there will be more officers on campus tomorrow, community service officers and community service specialists will be highly visible, and our K9 team will be touring the campus and buildings.
We understand that a threat of any kind, real or not, makes many fear for their safety. Please know that we will do everything possible to ensure the safety of our university community,” the statement concluded.
