While Super Nintendo World in Universal Japan was originally planned to open to the public on February 4, the opening date has been postponed once again according to an official announcement from Universal Japan.
Unfortunately, this comes after there was a “State of Emergency” issued to Osaka Prefecture and an increase in Covid-19 cases. At the moment, we do not know what the new opening date will be and it will only be decided once the “State of Emergency” is lifted.
This announcement comes not too long after there was a Nintendo Direct for Super Nintendo World, which will certainly make waiting for the opening even harder for fans. In this Nintendo Direct, Shigeru Miyamoto showed viewers around the park and gave us a sneak peek at some of the upcoming attractions and activities, including a Mario Kart ride.
Due to this change in events, Universal Japan is offering visitors the chance to change their ticket dates if they purchased a ticket from February 4th and onward in order to give them a chance to come to the grand opening later. It is also possible for visitors to get a full refund if they so wish.
This “State of Emergency” is also requiring the park to limit the number of guests from January 17 to February 7, as well as other provisions to keep visitors safe in this uncertain time.
For those who would like a little Super Nintendo World in their life after this unfortunate news, below you can check out the Nintendo Direct for Super Nintendo World and see some of the attractions that we will (one day soon, hopefully) be able to experience.
