Universal Studios Japan has it Advertise Super Nintendo World will not open next month as planned. The Nintendo-themed district in Osaka Park was supposed to open on February 4 after its launch was delayed from last year, but with Osaka being placed under a state of emergency declared yesterday until at least February 7, that won’t happen anymore. USJ says it will announce a new opening date once the state of emergency is lifted.
The state of emergency in Japan was initially issued for Tokyo and the surrounding areas, but yesterday the order was extended to 11 prefectures, including Osaka. The countermeasures are not particularly strong compared to the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions elsewhere – people are discouraged from taking unnecessary trips abroad, and establishments like restaurants and cinemas are required to close early in the evening – but it’s clearly not the ideal time to open. amusement park.
Super Nintendo World is a significant project for Nintendo, and represents the most ambitious attempt yet to expand its IP into new business opportunities. The park was initially set to open in time for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, which itself remains in doubt. When it finally opens, it will have attractions like AR-powered Mario Kart Roller coaster.
