Spaniard Arrested Over Attempted Nintendo Blackmail

Authorities arrested a Spanish man they say hacked into Nintendo's database of users and stole personal information. He attempted to blackmail the company and released some details online when the company refused to pay. He had apparently intended to release all of the information if he did not receive payment.

Further details are unknown at this time, as the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
