Universal Studios Japan Delays Opening of Super Nintendo World


The highly anticipated opening of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Japan has been delayed, according to NHK News. The nearly ¥60 billion ($560 million) expansion was originally set to open this summer but has now been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this time, the park has not announced when they expect to open the new land, although construction is reportedly almost complete.

Universal Studios Japan was closed for about three months due to the global pandemic but started its phased reopening from the beginning of June. Check out our report on the opening day of the park to see how new social distancing rules and sanitation guidelines were implemented.

You can still get your Nintendo fix at the official Nintendo TOKYO store in Shibuya.

Meanwhile, Tokyo Disney Resort will reopen on July 1, 2020, and its large-scale expansion has also been delayed.

While we are sad that Super Nintendo World has been delayed, we are very excited for it to open once it is safe to do so!

More Things to Do in Tokyo

My recommendations for things to do in and around Tokyo! Plan a day at the Hello Kitty theme park, Sanrio Puroland, and an afternoon at the popular TeamLab Planets TOKYO. Take a tour around Tokyo with the convenient hop-on and-off bus. Spend a rainy afternoon inside Japan’s largest indoor theme park, Tokyo Joyoplis, near Tokyo Disney!
