While the current context doesn’t lend itself too much to amusement park trips, some Japanese and expatriates still imagined frolicking the corridors of Super Nintendo World as of next month. But unfortunately for you and the rest of the facility, COVID-19 is far from the last word.

It’s through a Press release published earlier today thanUniversal has announced its decision to postpone the opening of the Super Nintendo World zone at Universal Studios Japan again, an opening that was scheduled for February 4th prior to this postponement.
This decision, which is not really surprising, was motivated by the establishment of the Osaka State of Emergency by February 7, announced yesterday by the Japanese authorities. Universal has not specified a new opening date for Super Nintendo World, merely stating that it will be announced once the state of emergency is lifted.
The Super Nintendo World area of Universal Studios Japan was originally supposed to open last spring shortly before the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020. But before a certain virus attacked the entire facility. After several months of uncertainty, Universal finally decided to open this 100% Big N expansion on February 4, 2021.
But unfortunately for the entertainment glove, a resurgence in the intensity of the pandemic in Japan and new measures by the Japanese government have put new sticks into the wheels.
Do you think Universal can open Super Nintendo World this year? If you had the opportunity to go there, would you do it despite the current context? Tell us everything in the comments below.
