Universal Studios Japan postpones opening of 'Super Nintendo World'
"Thanks Mario! But the opening date of the expansion of Universal Studios Japan is in another period of time ", is what can be said about it. From the beginning, the timing for the opening of "Super Nintendo World," Universal Studios Japan's video game-themed expansion, was a bit confusing. At first, it was supposed to open in "Summer 2020," but then the pandemic arrived, erasing those plans and forcing the opening to be postponed. However, in late November, February 4, 2021, was announced as the grand opening date of the “Super Nintendo World” to the public.
Well, Universal Studio Japan has issued another statement announcing that the opening of the "Super Nintendo World" will be delayed indefinitely. The reason, as usual, is the COVID-19 pandemic, which is basically the recurring villain of any production at this time. With Japan experiencing its largest increase in positive cases since the pandemic began, the central government declared a state of emergency for Osaka Prefecture (where Universal Studios Japan is located), following earlier statements for Tokyo and neighboring prefectures in Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba. Seven other prefectures also declared a state of emergency in recent days.
Universal Studios Japan is not forced to cease operations entirely, but in its statement the park indicated that it will comply with government guidelines by severely limiting admission to the facilities. Apparently that would suggest that the park could allow guests to enter the "Super Nintendo World" area, but with the incredibly high level of anticipation for the expansion, it is not unlikely that guests will be clustered thickly in that area. On the contrary, it could also be that after so much preparation for this expansion, Universal Studios Japan does not want to waste the excitement with a grand opening of limited capacity, muffled grandeur and, why deny it, limited revenue.
